Nier: Automata is a sport with a number of endings, stuffed to the brim with hard-to-find secrets and techniques. Mod-enthusiast, Lance McDonald, nonetheless, did extra digging than anybody else to search out Automata’s ultimate “cheat code.” Apparently, gamers can skip to the sport’s “E” ending proper after defeating Automata’s first boss encounter. I really like Nier: Automata (and I actually need you to find it irresistible too). Its sudden finale sequence remains to be one of many most memorable gaming experiences I’ve ever had. I would advocate taking part in by the sport’s three story routes earlier than seeing the true ending. However, you’ll be able to watch the video beneath for extra particulars; Lance was form sufficient to finish the footage earlier than any main spoilers might be seen.
I discovered a cheat code in NieR Automata that permits you to skip to the final ending instantly after killing the primary boss and unlock the bonus modes. I am going to do a full video quickly.

Whereas I am not notably sure on what the button inputs or necessities are to activate the skip, it appears as if 2B have to be positioned between the 2 units of three oil canisters (pictured above) whereas back-dashing at a sure angle. Finally the display fades to black, and Pod 153 begins to posit their well-known philosophical query. This is not Lance McDonald’s first rodeo with Automata. Final August, they found a strategy to entry the sport’s debug menus and carried out a photograph mode. You may watch that video and way more right here.
Nier Replicant, a remastered model of the primary Nier sport that by no means launched in North America, is slated for an April 23 launch. The gameplay seems to be to construct upon Automata’s fast-paced fight and chronicles a narrative that takes place hundreds of years earlier than 2B and 9S’ harrowing journey.
