Fans have actually discovered that the Windows PC ports of Nier: Automata and The Evil Within that Microsoft simply contributed to its library deal considerable enhancements or repairs that aren’t present in the Steam variations.

QLOC managed the Video game Pass for PC variation of Nier: Automata, and on Thursday the studio kept in mind that it’s a port of the End up being as Gods Edition, which released on Xbox One in 2018. So, not just does it pack in all of the initial downloadable material, it likewise includes a borderless video setting that repairs the video game’s resolution (it was janky in the 2017 PC variation).
