NieR: Automata to Receive a Game of the Year Edition

NieR: Automata has not received a PC patch yet.
It’s not uncommon for PC games to release with some bugs or glitches, but usually, the game’s creators release patches to fix these problems. That’s not the case with NieR: Automata, as Square Enix didn’t release a single patch for it even though it clearly has issues on PC. That’s not to say that the game isn’t playable or enjoyable. I personally finished it a few times with different characters, and I found the story to be quite intriguing. Moreover, the music is fantastic, but I can’t say the same about the controls or gameplay. After its release, the game received multiple awards, including some Game of the Year nominations.
A Game of the Year Edition is in the works.
Even though Square Enix didn’t commit to fixing the game, the modding community resolved its most pressing issues. In recent news, it appears that a special Game of the YorHa edition is in the works, which should include all of the available Nier: Automata DLCs. The report comes courtesy of ESRB, which also released an adequate description for the title:
“Players use swords, spears, lances, and lasers to destroy enemy robots in melee-style combat. Large explosions and realistic gunfire are frequently heard during combat. Some sequences depict blood and additional acts of violence against human-like characters: a man impaled through the chest with a sword, resulting in large blood-splatter effects; character lying in pools of blood after getting stabbed.”
NieR: Automata Game of the YorHA Edition should come out soon for PlayStation 4 and PC.
