After 4 years, Sq. Enix have plans to patch the Steam model of Nier: Automata – hopefully with the brand new options from the Recreation Go model?
As a lot as I am keen on Nier: Automata (diploma: so much), I can’t deny the PC model is a bit bum and has been because it launched 4 years in the past. It is daft that we have had to make use of a fan-made repair to run it within the appropriate decision or cease cutscenes stuttering. Sq. Enix did us soiled. However oh my giddy aunt, the celebrities have aligned and in the present day they lastly introduced an “improve patch” for the post-apocalyptic RPG’s Steam model. Presumably with the fixes from the latest Microsoft Retailer version?
Nier: Automata wasn’t unplayable by any stretch nevertheless it was shoddy, and I used to be shocked when it remained so. Whereas Squeenix did launch paid DLC, they didn’t patch its points. This Steam information explains the instruments and tweaks we have wanted to repair it ourselves. Hopefully that is the type of stuff lastly getting addressed? Squeenix introduced in the present day:
An improve patch for the Steam model of #NieR:Automata is presently in improvement.
We’ll have extra info to share with you at a later date. pic.twitter.com/gUPCLSwgyH

That is imprecise, and the patch is seemingly not shut, however I hope it is the fixes from the latest Home windows Retailer model. When Nier: Automata hit Xbox Recreation Go in March, gamers found that model not solely did not endure most of the Steam launch’s issues, it had new options together with assist for HDR and FidelityFX. As a Steam proprietor, it was a bummer to listen to that with none phrase on fixing the model I purchased. Possibly this will probably be that?
I ought to notice that our company siblings at Digital Foundry weren’t wholly thrilled with the brand new model. They stated that whereas it did enhance the sport, it did not repair every thing – and Microsoft Retailer safety blocks instruments and mods that would’ve helped with remaining points. So… possibly even when the upcoming Steam patch had the identical leftover points, we may at the very least mod it? I need to consider.
I’ve not performed Nier in a couple of years so I would be nicely up for a return go to when it is mounted. Very eager to see if I am nonetheless the type of human trashpile who struggles with the idea of redemption and will get absolutely crushed by Weight Of The World on the finish. Annnd now I am welling up simply fascinated with that music. That’ll be a solution, then. Nice. Cool. Nice. Do not take a look at me. Do not take a look at me! Go learn our former Adam’s Nier: Automata evaluate as a substitute.
A revamped model of the earlier sport, Nier Replicant, is due out on April twenty third. It bears the spectacular title ‘NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139…’ – ellipsis and all.
