Again in June, we informed you about the lack of any patch/replace for the PC model of NieR: Automata. Usually we wouldn’t be posting one other story about it, nonetheless Square Enix tried a injury management in June, claiming that it’s been working with each NVIDIA and AMD with a purpose to launch a patch for NieR: Automata. Nicely, it’s been almost two months since that assertion so what’s the standing of NieR: Automata PC?

And to be sincere, nothing actually modified since June. The one replace that NieR: Automata received – by way of a driver replace and not a correct PC patch – was from NVIDIA again in July 28th, and from AMD a couple of days in the past. NVIDIA launched in July a brand new driver that addressed a problem the place the display screen might flip white throughout NieR:Automata gameplay. Equally, AMD’s Radeon Software program Crimson ReLive Version 17.5.2 fixes a bug that would trigger the display screen to go clean or white, together with another points equivalent to random hangs or sport crashes after quick intervals of gameplay.

So yeah, no efficiency enhancements, no PC enhancements, no official fixes for the sport’s ridiculous decision points, no enhancements to the sport’s keyboard+mouse management scheme, and no fixes for any of the sport’s bugs which have been reported by its group.

Mockingly, NieR: Automata can be a very mediocre expertise on the PC if it wasn’t for the FAR mod from Kaldaien. In spite of everything, there isn’t any technique to repair the sport’s decision scaling points and the cutscene stuttering bug aside from utilizing the FAR mod.

Now we’re not actually shocked by this. Again in June, we claimed that Square Enix’s assertion sounded extra like an try at injury management and nothing extra. And… nicely… we had been proper.

In conclusion, we will safely say that Square Enix – and PlatinumGames – have left NieR: Automata PC to its destiny. Oh, and the sport nonetheless makes use of Denuvo, regardless that it has been cracked.
