Batman: Arkham Knight having more trouble, but this time on the PS4

Batman Arkham Knight
As news began to break about the numerous issues affecting the PC version of Batman: Arkham Knight, players of the console version breathed a sigh of relief and got back to playing the game. Now players of the PlayStation 4 version are having problems of their own, albeit much less severe ones.

Players firing up Batman: Arkham Knight are still able to play the game just fine, but they’re being greeted with a message about the game’s leaderboard support: “A connection to PlayStation Network cannot be established. Gameplay will continue without leaderboard access until a connection is made.”

Not all players are experiencing the issue, but from the number of reports on the game’s message boards and Sony’s community help pages, a significant number of players are affected. Leaderboards are used for the game’s Gotham’s Greatest feature, which lets players see how their friends measure up as Batman.

This isn’t the first time this has happened with a Warner Brothers game at launch. Mortal Kombat X also suffered from similar issues at launch, GameSpot points out.

While it’s surely annoying for some players, this issue pales in comparison to those affecting the PC version of Batman: Arkham Knight. Bugs and performance issues ran rampant, even for those with powerful graphics cards like Nvidia’s Titan X. Nvidia released a new driver which helped some graphical issues, but file integrity bugs still caused players to have to re-download multiple gigabytes of the game.

Problems were severe enough that Warner Brothers eventually suspended further sales of the game while it worked to fix the issues. Players who had already bought the game had the option of keeping the game and waiting for a patch, or trying out Steam’s new refund system.

At the time of this writing, reports are still coming in regarding PS4 leaderboards, though neither Sony or Batman: Arkham Knight developer Rocksteady have issued a statement.
