Nier: Automata’s original PC release on Steam was busted in all kinds of ways, so much so that fans had to make their own patches. Now, fours years after it was released—and only a few months after a less-busted version appeared on the Microsoft Store—the developers are finally going to update it.

We don’t know when it’ll be fixed, or what those fixes will actually include, but we do know that, “An upgrade patch for the Steam version of NieR:Automata is currently in development, because that’s all the game’s official Twitter account would say on the matter.

Better four years late than never, I guess?

Yeah now I can finally buy and play it. Since I missed the boat hard.

I know I have to beat it something like 15 plus times, and they’re not whole playthroughs, but otherwise I’m in the dark and want to remain so.
