It’s been nearly four years since the release of Yokotaro’s NieR: Automata, and despite this, the game still had at least one more secret to discover. At least, if speculation is to be believed, that is until now. Twitter user Lance McDonald (@manfightdragon) has discovered a cheat code in the game through “hundreds of hours of reverse engineering.” This code seemingly allows you to skip to the final ending of the game and also unlock all the game content. It seems this code is only possible after defeating the first boss of the game.
Lance says he will do a full video explaining it soon, but he does display the code process on Twitter. After inputting various commands, a message will prompt asking if you have anything to say to other players. We’re not 100% sure on the details, but the oil drums seem to have some significance. Lance says that the code does work on PC and PlayStation 4, but an Xbox One copy has yet to be tested. It’s likely the same case there. We hope to know more when Lance posts a full video, likely on his YouTube channel.
