Three years later, gamers revealed the final secret of NieR: Automata with the secret ending of the game

It seemed that gamers were exploring every pixel of NieR: Automata, but only three years after the release of the game enthusiast

really discovered the last secret.

End of mysteries

The game developers hinted at the remaining secretback in 2018, but they didn't point a finger, so players had to guess on their own. The community even got the idea that the language barrier played a cruel joke and that the authors of the game were simply misunderstood. Video blogger Lance MacDonald has proven otherwise.

The guy found a cheat code that gives access tothe previously unknown ending of NieR: Automata. The secret is activated after defeating the first boss in the episode “Ch. 01-02_3: 2B Inside the Factory ". 9S leaves for exploration, while 2B remains to investigate the plant. On the platform where the battle took place, two groups of three barrels are located close to each other.

For the cheat to work, you need to put the heroine betweenthem, hold down R2 and, while holding this button, press: up, down, up, right, left, square, circle, triangle, cross. The trick is difficult to pull off as the 2B must remain between the drums to activate. The blogger recommends that you pause the game on the quick select menu to make things easier.

If everything works out, the player will have access to the secret ending, chapter selection, debugging mode and a store for buying achievements.

According to MacDonald, the secret was found after traveling through the NieR: Automata code. The guy dug up the mention of CheatCommandManager, and took up the reverse engineering.

The blogger published the search results on the Web, butthen did not yet know the required combination of buttons. Another enthusiast suggested how to activate the cheat. According to him, the same code is hidden in Bayonetta 2, and the combo is called Platinum Code, as it outlines the logo of the PlatinumGames studio. Fans have known about it for a long time, but they could not understand where it should be entered.

After publication, the official NieR account responded to the video, confirming that this is the last secret. Later, Yoko Taro himself noted the efforts of the blogger.
