Nier: Automata Retexture Mod Is Finished, Four Years After Release

A popular Nier: Automata retexture mod is finally out. Modder GPUnity set out four years ago to fix and replace more than 300 textures in the PC version of Nier: Automata, and now the final version of the patch is out on NexusMods.

"NieR: Automata is one of my favourite games," GPUnity wrote on Steam. "Unfortunately, it suffers from some blurry textures that hurt the presentation. My goal is to provide a natural restoration to the low-res textures, maintaining the intended look."

As with many Nier: Automata mods, the texture pack requires the Fix Automata Resolution (FAR) mod to inject the new textures into the game. You can also use a program called Special K for the Windows Store version. The above video shows off the changes, and they're pretty substantial.
