Nier Automata will receive a major update for PC on July 15, which will bring many of the changes requested by fans. Here are the full patch notes.
Nier Automata was released first for PC and PS4, followed by the Xbox One. The PC version had many flaws that Square Enix didn’t patch, but fans stepped up to create mods that fixed the issues. An official fix came only recently when the game made its debut on Windows 10 via Xbox Game Pass. The Windows version implemented some of the changes fans requested for the PC version.
The new July 15 update for Nier Automata finally adds these features to the game. You can see the full list of changes below.
