Nier Automata will receive a significant update on July 15 for PC bringing a lot of the changes requested by fans. Here are the complete patch notes.
Nier Automata was released for PC and PS4 first followed by the Xbox One. The PC version had a lot of flaws that weren’t patched by Square Enix but fans stepped up to create mods that solved the issues. An official fix never came until recently when the game made its debut on Windows 10 through Xbox Game Pass. The Windows version implemented some of the changes that the fans had been requested for the PC version.
The new July 15 update for Nier Automata is finally adding these features to the game. You can see the complete list of changes below.
