Good news for fans of Nier: Automata. It looks like a new version of a must-have HD texture pack has been released by a modder. This new pack overhauls over 300 textures on the game, giving new life to the fan-favorite RPG.
Modder GPUnity has been offering a HD texture pack for Nier: Automata since late 2018. Initially, the pack included improvements to A2 and 2B and added small improvements or updates to some of the other textures in the game. Now, the modder has released a final version of their texture pack that will overhaul over 300 textures within the game. This new pack aims to fix the low-resolution textures and maintain visual consistency for the best user experience. Plus, for those who play on a lower-end system, there is also a “lite-version” of the texture available that will work better on those systems.
You can check out the upgrade the pack offers in the video below:
This new texture pack does require players to already have Kaldaien’s FAR (Fix Automata Resolution) mod installed. This mod allows for texture injection, thus making GPUnity’s pack workable in the game. For those who use the Windows Store Version they can alternatively use Special K to allow the texture pack to work.
Since its initial release back in 2017, Nier: Automata on Steam has had a few issues. In particular, a lack of ultra-widescreen support, uneven framrate, and general instability issues have been reported. This is a real shame as the console versions of the game seem to work wonderfully. Though, it is not uncommon for PC ports to have such issues as some publishers focus on console development over PC development.
Of course, for those who don’t want to install the texture pack, Square Enix announced last month that the Steam version of Nier: Automata would be receiving “some form of an update soon”. While no details were given on what this update would focus on, it is likely that the update would focus on the much-criticized framerate for the title.
