Glory to Microsoft Fans: Nier: Automata Releasing on Xbox One in June [Update: Xbox One X Enhanced]

Weight of the world.

Update: Nier: Automata will be Xbox One X enhanced when it comes out.

Original Story

At last, the phrase "glory to mankind" can finally extend to Xbox One players, because Nier: Automata is making its long-awaited debut on the console this month. The announcement came early this morning courtesy of Square Enix (though the reveal blog has since been pulled—likely an accidental leak before Microsoft's E3 2018 showcase today), ahead of its own press conference on Monday, June 11 at 10 a.m. PDT.

The Xbox One release will include Nier: Automata's DLC expansion too.

Nier: Automata was previously a console exclusive to the PlayStation 4, and had a PC release too. It received wide critical acclaim, from us and many other outlets, with some ranking it among the best games of the year. The PC release famously had a lot of bugs and other problems at launch last year, some of which controversially remain. Here's to hoping its Xbox One release fairs better.

The Xbox One version will come with some extra special goodies too. Billed as Nier: Automata Become as Gods edition, the combat arena DLC 3C3C1D119440927 will be included, as well as four Pod skins and "The Machine Lifeform Mask Accessory." So far, there aren't any details on if the release will include any Xbox One X enhancements, but we will update this news story with any confirmation of it. Nier: Automata Becomes as Gods edition will retail at $49.99, and will be out for Xbox One on June 26.
