I'm going to gamble most of our regular users already know how to switch from DX11 to 9, but for anyone who doesn't, just hit this link for the Batman forum run-down.
In the meantime, a workaround for this issue is to run the game with DX 9 instead of DX 11. Instructions on how to turn off DX 11 are listed below.
We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience with your gameplay experience and thank you all for your patience as we work to resolve this issue.
