    Has it really been 4 months? If so, I finished it over 3 months ago and have been soured by not being able to play the season pass I paid for.

    Don't know if I cba to go back for the additional content or just tell Rocksteady where they can stick all their future releases.

    The PC conversion wasn't (entirely?) done by Rocksteady, but by their "external PC development partner" Iron Galaxy Studios. I think this may have been the weak link in this case, though they appear to have done plenty of good work before.

    I'd opt for doing both. Finish playing what you paid for, then tell Rocksteady where to go.

    And in future, no more pre-orders.

    They've never done a proper PC game before, it baffled everyone why they picked such a studio, except to try save money. Like every other publisher, they know PC sales will be much lower than console sales, so tried to cut corners, and it backfired spectacularly

    Hopefully Warner Bros at least won't attempt to charge the full £60 (for the Premium Edition) that they charged at release, as I doubt that would go down well with anyone, but knowing WB they might try it, which is a shame as they used to be a decent publisher...
