Let’s be honest, we expected something like this to happen. The original game was released on the PS4 and Steam, and eventually released on the Xbox One earlier this year as the NieR:Automata BECOME AS GODS Edition. Which is exactly what we’re getting in the Game of the YoRHa edition (GOTY) All the same DLC, as well as in-game items, will be available in this new edition for the PS4 and PC.
- 3C3C1D119440927 Expansion DLC
- Four pod designs (Grimoire Weiss Pod, Retro Grey Pod Skin, Retro Red Pod Skin, and Cardboard Pod Skin)
- Machine Mask Accessory
Hopefully, this also means that the PS4 and PC versions will receive better-optimized ports. The original game on both platforms wasn’t able to maintain 1080 60FPS, let alone a decent framerate at higher resolutions on PC. However, previously released Xbox One version when running on the Xbox One X, well it’s a thing of beauty. I want that for this release. Please don’t let us down, Square Enix.
As for NieR: Automata, it’s a game that must be played. The music, the combat, the atmosphere, and even Yoko Taro’s weird humor – makes this game a masterpiece. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on the title, so I even went and imported it, then followed that up with the NA release. If that doesn’t tell you that I was in love with this game, I don’t know what else will. If you haven’t played it yet or aren’t sure at what to expect, then check out our review of the game here.
