NieR: Automata Steam Upgrade Patch Now in Development
It’s official, an upgrade patch for the PC Steam version of NieR: Automata is underway. If you’re ever played the Steam version of the game, you will have noticed a number of frame rates issues plaguing the version of the game.
Recently a PC version of NieR: Automata was released through the Microsoft Store and Xbox Game Pass as a new port, which fixed a number of issues that currently still exist in the Steam version. These fixes have yet to make it over to Steam, but news that it is in development is good news. Further details will be announced about the exact fixes and improvements that will be coming to the Steam version.
I played the Steam version on our Twitch channel last year, and also suffered a number of frame rate issues and crashes. While there are fan-made mods to help with these problems, an official update would provide a better experience for fans, especially if it comes straight from the developers themselves. It’s great it’s finally getting an official update, as it should be experienced in the best possible way.
