Automata is better on Xbox Game Pass PC than on Steam • Eurogamer.net

Nier: Automata is better on Xbox Game Pass PC than on Steam, it has appeared.

The PC version of Nier: Automata that launched into the Xbox Game Pass this week is a port of the Nier: Automata Become as Gods Edition that will launch on Xbox One in 2018 with the DLC thrown in into.

This port, handled by the QLOC developer, includes a number of enhancements, such as unlimited video setting, FidelityFX options, HDR, and a user interface texture of up to 4k. The endless video setting is especially welcome – it means Nier: Automata runs at the right resolution when it votes. In a Facebook post, QLOC said these promotions were made “at the special request of PlatinumGames”.

The “vanilla” PC version of Nier: Automata that launched on Steam in March 2017 was criticized outright for performance and technical issues. For example, for some reason the Steam game votes to an image similar to 4: 3 regardless of the resolution chosen. While modders moved swiftly to rectify some of the catch issues, Digital Foundry lamented what it said were “non-professional issues” that were “what could be one of the most popular PC games better at Platinum ”.

The video below from Digital Foundry goes into more detail.

Some Steam owners of Nier: Automata have left negative reviews to complain about the lack of updates to their version of the game. At the time of publication, 281 negative reviews have been left in the last three days – all of which are almost in response to the improved PC version now out on Xbox Game Pass.

Recent Reviews of Nier: Automata on Steam.

“After allowing the Steam port to go captive for four years Square Enix made it impossible: they put an improved version of the game on PC Pass Game with FidelityFX, HDR, unlimited mode, and better performance while ‘ s did nothing about the previous version, “read a review by Steam user” yellowcake “.

“I used mods as the long mod to make the game run better and be more stable,” said a Steam Fish and Chips user in another negative review. “He was lucky that he ran without a question on my system, and was able to enjoy a good game with a hard story.

“However, Microsoft ‘s version of the version is bundled and better running, so I recommend playing through Game Pass instead for the least experience of a problem that is so likely to disrupt the your play session.

“So now that there’s an option that you’ve spent less money to play the game, and of course running better it’s hard to recommend this version of the game. Take advantage test Game Pass and save the money if this game is not finally updated. “

Meanwhile, it has been revealed that there are several improvements to the Xbox Game Pass PC that the Steam version does not have in the Evil Inside.

The Evil Inside speedrunner Jigzaw_Killer described the recently released Xbox Game Pass version of Tango Gameworks’ horror adventure as “basically a stealth reset”, and revealed that its first-person mode, scene-view option, unlimited ammo mode, low and medium options for the bob camera and even a change to the stamina mechanics.

Right now Review bombing isn’t as much of an issue with The Evil Inside on Steam – that game didn’t suffer from any technical glitches at the time of its launch. But negative reviews have started to creep in recently.

“This is one of my favorite games, I beat Akumu without any update even though I died 200 times at the beginning of chapter 6, I’m so fond of that,” said a Steam Not Guilty user. “But this version is old-fashioned and will never be updated so don’t buy a Bethesda game until they fix their ways.”

It is a strange situation that has not yet been explained by Square Enix, Bethesda or Microsoft.
