Speaking of NieR Replicant Ver.1.22474487139, a new patch has gone live for the Steam version of the game a few hours ago. The update addresses some performance issues that have been in the game since launch.
The soon to be released Steam patch version 1.0.3 will apply fixes that allow the game to run at a stable frame rate of 60fps.
The technical specifications for this title do not guarantee correct operation at over 60Hz, and there is a bug in the code which leads to the game running at a higher than intended speed if 60Hz is exceeded.
We understand that there are a number of customers who have already adjusted their PC settings in order to run the game in a stable state.
Both NieR: Automata and NieR Replicant Ver.1.22474487139 are available right now on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One worldwide.
