Game publisher Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announced that it will re-release "Batman: Arkham Knight" for the PC platform on October 28.

The announcement came months after the company was forced to stop selling the game due to its numerous major issues during its launch.

Speaking through the game's Steam page, Warner Bros. noted that the re-release of the game this week will be accompanied by additional content that already came out for the title's console counterparts. These, however, do not include those that were released exclusively for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

According to the company, this is to ensure that PC gamers will be able to stay up-to-date in terms of gameplay experience.

"We'll also be releasing a patch that brings the PC version fully up-t-to-date with content that has been released for console (with the exception of console exclusives)," Warner Bros. wrote.

"This means that next week, all PC players will have access to Photo Mode, Big Head Mode, 'Batman: Arkham Asylum' Batman Skin, and character selection in combat AR challenges," the studio continued.

Warner Bros. then went on to say that those who purchased the Season Pass of "Batman: Arkham Knight" for the PC will also receive all of the package's included content such as the three Crime Fighter Challenger Packs, Batmobile Race Tracks, Arkham Episodes Story Packs.

The Season Pass also features additional skins for various characters such as the 1990s Catwoman skin, 1970s Batman skin, 'Dark Knight Returns' Batman skin and the original Arkham Nightwing skin. It also includes other Batmobile models such as those from the "Batman" films and television series.

The PC version of "Batman: Arkham Knight" originally came out in June along with the game's Xbox One and PlayStation 4 counterparts.

However, shortly after the game's debut, gamers started complaining about various issues that affected its gameplay. Some of these include audio glitches and frequent stuttering, according to IGN.

The game's developer Rocksteady Studios immediately addressed the complaints and said it will work on the game with its PC development partner. Warner Bros., on the other hand, decided to pull out "Batman: Arkham Knight" from Steam to prevent other people from purchasing a game riddled with glitches.

Now, about four months later, it seems Rocksteady Studios and Warner Bros. have managed to resolve the game's issues by announcing its PC version's re-release. Hopefully, the game will run smoothly and will no longer contain bugs.
