NieR Automata has not received a single patch on the PC but a GOTY Edition is coming out

While NieR: Automata sold quite well on the PC, it’s a game that could benefit from some patches. Surprisingly enough, Square Enix dropped the ball on this one and the game still suffers from mediocre PC controls (unless of course you’re playing with a gamepad but that’s not an excuse).

But anyway, according to ESRB there is a Game of the Year Edition, called NieR: Automata Game of the YoRHa Edition, coming out soon. My guess is that this Edition will simply include the DLCs that have been released and nothing more. So no, don’t expect any PC improvements or tweaks.

According to ESRB’s description, this is an action game in which players assume the role of androids attempting to save Earth from extraterrestrial machines.

“Players use swords, spears, lances, and lasers to destroy enemy robots in melee-style combat. Large explosions and realistic gunfire are frequently heard during combat. Some sequences depict blood and additional acts of violence against human-like characters: a man impaled through the chest with a sword, resulting in large blood-splatter effects; character lying in pools of blood after getting stabbed. Some characters wear revealing outfits with partially exposed buttocks; one male character is depicted nude (without genitalia). The words “f**k” and “sh*t” are heard in the dialogue.”

The game has been rated M for mature and there is currently no ETA on when it will release. Still, and since ESRB had also leaked the PC version of Sunset Overdrive, we are pretty sure that this listing is legit!
