As everyone knows, NieR: Automata came to Xbox Game Pass last month. The version of NieR on Xbox Game Pass and the version on Steam were very different. The game does not contain any content as extra. However, the Xbox Game Pass version was better optimized than the version on Steam. In this context, a statement was made by the developer of the game, Platinum Games. In the statement, it was stated that they would be interested in the version on Steam.
An Update For Optimization
Steam users left negative comments on the game’s Steam page to react to the Steam version of NieR. This reaction of users attracted the attention of developer Platinum Games. Currently, the game has a fan-made optimization mode. But the players do not want to go into this trouble and they are right about it.
The NieR Series official Twitter account made a statement regarding the Steam version as follows: “An upgrade patch for the Steam version of NieR:Automata is currently in development. We’ll have more information to share with you at a later date.“
It is not yet clear when the upgrade update will arrive. No matter how smooth the Xbox Game Pass version is, Microsoft stores game files in a way that is difficult to access. So when you want to install a mod, it can be difficult to access the game folder. This process can also corrupt other game files. That’s why the Steam version of the game is more attractive to players.
The Steam version of the game is not in an unplayable state. But as I mentioned above, if you want to run it properly, you should install a fan-made optimization mode. Developer Platinum Games will share new information about the update in the future. Stay tuned for new information.
