Updates on Support/ Latest Updates

[ Edited ]

Hi all,


We're aware that many of you are experiencing some bugs/glitches in their games, and we just want to let you know that the teams are diligently working on their fixes. I will be updating this message throughout the days to keep you all posted on their progress.


[Updated 25-04  6:54pm EDT] 


Hi all,


Patch 5 is now live.


This patch addresses the following issue in the Cold, Cold Heart DLC:

-Fixed the issue where some players would encounter infinite falling in My Alibi. Users who are currently experiencing infinite falling in this location should now be able to respawn in My Alibi.

The patch also addresses the following issue in the main game:

 -Fixed the issue where the Deathstroke Quickfire controls for the neural pellet and proximity bomb were not working.

Dark Knight suit not possible to have undamaged


Hi all,


The Dark Knight suit that players unlock after completing all of the Dark Knight challenges currently has a bug that makes the suit have battle damage after being unlocked. The teams have looked into whether this bug can be resolved in the next patch, and unfortunately, have concluded that it cannot be done. The programming code on the skin is locked and there is a larger than expected amount of risk associated with fixing this bug that would compromise gameplay performance and framerate. 


Thanks for being passionate Arkham fans and thank you for your continued understanding and support.



Hi everyone,


Since the last patch, many of the major progression blockers in the game have been fixed. We understand that in rare cases, players are still experiencing some bugs and glitches in the game. The listed fixes for these platforms address the issues in a way that should prevent them from occurring again in the game, or fix them on the spot after you’ve downloaded the patch.


For those players still experiencing the bugs that we have listed as fixes in the latest patch, we recommend the following steps:


Please make sure that you are offline when you follow the below instructions. When prompted to sign in to Xbox Live, please do not do so. Also, please backup your saved games on any other storage device before doing this.



1) Go in Settings > System > Storage.  Highlight your Hard Drive and press the Y button.  Select Clear System Cache.  Confirm by selecting Yes.

2) Go in Settings > System > Storage > Hard Drive > Games and Apps and find Batman: Arkham Origins

3) Click on Batman Arkham Origins. You should see your saved games, DLCs, etc.  
4) Find the 15 MB game update called “Batman Arkham Origins Title Update” and delete it. 

5) Play Batman: Arkham Origins and refuse the update. Hit 'cancel'


If you still experience the bug after doing the above, please apply the patch and force a save (for example by traveling to the Batcave), then continue your game.


If, after you have tried the above steps, you still experience your bug, we would advise that you restart your game and start a new save file.


We want to thank everyone who have sent us their save games over the last couple of months. Your save games have made it possible for the dev teams to dig deeper into these bugs to try to find solutions for them.


We want to thank everyone for having been patient since the launch of the game. Your ongoing support and enthusiasm is greatly appreciated by all the teams at WB Games.




Joker fight progression blocker

[UPDATE: A new patch went live for PC that fixes the progression blocker where the final Joker fight cutscene couldn't be completed with Keyboard and Mouse]



Patch 3 is now live.


Hotfix Patch is Now Live

This hotfix fixes the following issues:

  • Prevent benchmark map from awarding XP and saving game progress, which would block players from going back to main game.
  • Prevent the Alt+Tab keystroke from pausing the game when in the benchmark map
  • Resolves future Benchmark save corrupting issues


Singleplayer save games after Patch 2

The teams are aware that some players have been losing their singleplayer progress since the Patch 2 on PC. Specifically, using the Benchmark mode has caused some saved games to be lost. The teams are currently working on a fix for this issue and are planning to deploy a hotfix to resolve it sometime in the coming week.


All players who have lost their SP progress since Patch 2 while using Benchmark mode will not have their saved games recovered after this hotfix, as the issue prevents the save games from being salvaged. Meanwhile, we recommend that players hold on using the Benchmark mode while playing SP until this hotfix is deployed to fix the issue of future save games being lost.


We thank you for your patience and sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this has caused.


Multiplayer Unlocks Resetting After Patch 2

Since Patch 2 some players may have noticed that their unlocks were missing in Multiplayer mode. To help mitigate issues while the dev teams work on a fix, players will not be able to play MP until this issue is resolved. Players' MP account info & unlocks have not been lost. We will keep you posted on any updates regarding this.


Thank you for your patience!
