When NieR: Automata launched for PC (via Steam), the game’s PC version had a lot of issues. That was back in March of this year, and the game is still having problems on PC – however it’s not entirely the developer’s fault.
An AMD driver update was released last month, which solved the crashing issue AMD users were experiencing. Now, we’ve learned Square Enix is working directly with hardware manufacturers to solve the rest of the game’s issues.
“Square Enix and PlatinumGames are working with PC device manufacturers, like AMD, to address the issues with the Steam version of the game because some of the issues are not what Square Enix and PlatinumGames alone can resolve fundamentally,” the company said in a statement to Eurogamer.
“With AMD’s help, Square Enix and PlatinumGames have successfully resolved some of the issues, and we hope to achieve similar results with other hardware makers. We appreciate your continued patience and support for Nier: Automata.”
So there you have it – the game’s PC version is still being worked on, unfortunately we don’t have an ETA when those fixes are coming. In case you missed it, you can find our thorough written and video review for NieR: Automata here (we highly recommend it!).
