batmanarkhamoriginslogo1Those of you that picked up Batman: Arkham Origins may be experiencing some bugs that are preventing you from playing the game. Warner Bros. has released an official statement on the matter saying:

We’d like to sincerely thank everyone who has joined us since the launch of the game. We appreciate the fan support and also want to thank all the people in the field who have sent us their saved games as they have been invaluable in helping us identify the problems.

It has come to our attention that there are issues that are negatively impacting the experience for some players.  The team has been working around the clock to review, validate and pinpoint the problems that have been reported and we have identified three main issues which we are tackling first, and are listed below.  For these issues, we expect the software update to be available within the next week.  Rest assured, we are continuing to monitor all channels for other issues that players are experiencing and will release additional updates as they become available.

The three main issues they plan on tackling are:

1) Infinite Falling/Falling Out Of World

Some players have been stuck in an endless loop of falling, making it impossible to complete certain missions and progress through the single-player campaign.  We believe we have identified the issue and are currently testing the software update, which will push most players back to their previous save so that they will not be stuck in an infinite loop.

2) Unable To Continue Story

Some players can see their story progress in the main menu, but once they choose the story slot they don’t see an option to “Continue” and only “New Game” shows up. This issue should be resolved and the “Continue” option will once again be available.

3) FreeFlow Focus mode not unlocking upon reaching “Shadow Vigilante” rank 3 will be fixed

Warner also apologized to any affected consumers for the situation:

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused and thank you all for your patience as we work to resolve the issues.

Have you run into any of these issues? Are there other bugs that are plaguing the game for you? Let us know in the comments.
