First Look and Notes at Early Copy of NieR Automata (SPOILER FREE)
- The packaging is pretty good. Manuals and other information stuffs is really neat with Nier-ish aesthetic.
- When you get the physical copy early, you can play the game immediately. You can also do screen capture, but you cannot share it.
- The game’s file size is 47.7 Gb
- There’s an additional
6 Gb (Edit: the real patch size is 2.32 Gb) download for Patch 1.01 update coming on 2/23 (Day 1 Patch)
- If you play with the fresh installation data of the game WITHOUT patching it to 1.01, the save options is very limited (most of the time the game is not saved). You can play the game, following the story missions for several hours and at “some certain point” you will ABSOLUTELY die. Note that this thing won’t happen if you play the patched game on the official release date.
- Besides fixing the saving problem, Patch 1.01 will also fix some bugs, fix the game balance adjustment, and adds some additional content
- The tutorial in this game just doesn’t help so much. Be sure to read the manuals paper or in-game manuals
