The variation of Nier: Automata included to Xbox Game Pass just a number of days earlier is the Become As Gods edition, which was initially released for Xbox One in 2018. This version of the video game was developed by porting specialists QLOC, and adds borderless mode, HDR, UI textures upscaled to 4K, support for ultrawide resolutions, and FidelityFX, AMDs response to Nvidias DLSS.
I would not want the Windows Store on my worst opponent, but Xbox Game Pass is quite good. You can see the membership services rates strategies here.
Now a brand-new variation of the video game is out on PC that fixes numerous of those problems while including new graphical bells and whistles. The catch: its only available through the Windows shop and Xbox Game Pass, and not by means of Steam.
When Adam wrote our Nier: Automata evaluation, he didnt have a great deal of problems with its PC port. Others sadly werent so lucky, and modders have actually actioned in over the past several years to fix many graphics, performance, and quality-of-life problems that Square Enix and Platinum Games stopped working to address.
It also, in the process, fixes a lot of the concerns that users had with the initial PC port, including imperfect assistance for native fullscreen resolutions, stammering cutscenes and more. (Not all problems are repaired, mind – the keyboard and mouse and rebind alternatives are still crap, apparently.).
A few of the mods released to fix problems on the Steam develop are already being updated to deal with the Windows Store variation, where they still offer more enhancements, consisting of the visual fixes of the Special K mod. Gamers have also found out how to port saves from the Steam variation to the Windows Store release.
Gamers on Steam, meanwhile, are unimpressed at another store getting a better variation. There have been over 300 negative reviews published to Nier: Automatas Steam shop page in the past 3 days. Ive reached out to Square Enix for remark and will update this story if I hear back.

I can understand their frustration, though I envision releasing the Become As Gods edition on Steam isnt a simple matter.
