Gotham Knights is unplayable on Steam following latest update

Gotham Knights players are reporting that the game is no longer playable on Steam following the latest software update.

Fans took to social media outlets to complain about the problem that began last night, when they downloaded an update with a patch that would improve keyboard issues, co-op gameplay problems, and overall game stability — all complaints that cropped up since Gotham Knights launched last week. According to PC Gamer, the patch temporarily removed controversial anti-piracy software Denuvo on Wednesday, but when it was patched back in 15 hours later, the update rendered the game unplayable.

Paratrooper101 wrote on Reddit that they tried to queue the update on Steam, only for it to never download or install. Even when they tried to uninstall and reinstall Gotham Knights, they would receive a “Manifest unavailable” error, preventing the game from updating or installing at all. However, it could still be purchased from the Steam Store.

The official Twitter account for Warner Bros. Games Support has been responding to people complaining about the manifest error, saying that the company is actively investigating the issue.

So Gotham Knights can no longer be played on Steam, installed or updated, but it can still be purchased

It’s been like this since yesterday night, and there are no official statements or updates from @GothamKnights @WBGamesMTL

You have dig to find anything regarding this. Hmm

At around 3:40 p.m. Friday afternoon, a developer from Warner Bros. Games posted the following statement on the Gotham Knights Discord server. “We’re aware some Steam PC players are experiencing installation issues and we’re rolling out a fix with Valve now so you’ll see a download come through.” They then gave users a link to the game’s official website to report bugs if they’re still having issues.

Gotham Knight is available now on PC, Xbox Series X, and PS5.

There are now a decent number of VR headsets on the market, and the newest headset on the block, the PlayStation VR2, is one of the most powerful in terms of technology. This upgrade from the original PSVR makes many improvements over the original design, including trimming down the necessary cables to a single USB-C. Being the only headset on the market made by a console maker, many PC gamers may be wondering if the PSVR2 would be a worthy investment if they could also use it on their PCs.

If you're mainly a PC gamer, or have yet to get your hands on a PlayStation 5, and are interested in the PSVR2, here's whether or not it will work on other hardware.

Dead Cells: Return to Castlevania is as much of a slam dunk as it sounds
Death Attacks Dead Cells' hero in the Return to Castlevania DLC.

These days, I don’t go into many video games with expectations. I’ve been burned enough times by disaster launches to know that I should approach every game with a bit of reservation. It’s to the point where I’ve wiped the word “fan” out of my lexicon almost entirely, refusing to get too excited about any upcoming game even if it's part of a series I usually like. Sure, I love the original Resident Evil 4, but you won’t catch me hyping the remake when I have no idea what state it’ll launch in this month.

10 essential tips for Arena Mode in Apex Legends

A few years ago, it was hard to find any decent free-to-play games that weren't MMORPGs, and good free first-person shooter (FPS) games were almost non-existent. The few that were around usually came from less-than-reputable sources and usually experienced a host of bugs and connectivity issues.

With battle royale games offering a boon to the free-to-play model, though, AAA studios have started releasing high-quality, free FPS games. Games like Warframe paved the way for Apex Legends and Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0.
