Nier: Automata takes a beating on Steam
Angry gamers have taken it upon themselves to review-bomb the Steam version of Nier: Automata after a more polished edition was released on Xbox Game Pass.
The Xbox Game Pass version fixes a bunch of technical issues, including limited frame rate, stretched UI, bad controls and HDR support. Some Steam customers clearly think they are entitled to the same fixes.
Become as Xbox: The Xbox Game Pass version of Nier: Automata for PC is the Become as Gods edition, ported from Xbox and featuring improvements the Steam users have been asking after for a long time. The Xbox Game Pass version was ported by QLOC, who added borderless window mode, smoother frame rate and upscaled textures.
Existential crisis: Hence the review bombing. It's not the first time the Xbox Game Pass version of a console port is a bit more premium than the Steam one: The Evil Within on Xbox Game Pass features new field-of-view options, a first-person mode and other goodies – none of which are available for Steam users at this time.
