Nier: Automata’s unofficial mod greatly improves its PC performance

Square Enix is still getting the hang of PC ports, and many of its games are launching to mixed reception. NieR: Automata is the latest with complaints of a resolution glitch that displays 900p and stretches it to 1080p instead of displaying the game in true 1080p.

An unofficial mod now fixes this issue, allowing the game to be properly displayed in a true resolution. Not only that, it also smooths out all of the game’s frame rate issues, allowing the action to flow at a solid 60fps with no dips.

This mod comes with the stamp of approval from the number crunchers at Digital Foundry and the game’s fans over at Reddit.

A game that deserves nothing but the best

In our own review, we called Nier: Automata one of the best video games of the year, and while I’m not often put off by screen resolution or frame rate dips, I do believe that if you are sensitive to such things, this mod is worth it. The game deserves to be experienced with nothing but the best possible settings.

NieR: Automata is available now for the PlayStation 4 and PC.
