What do you get in NieR:Automata Game of the YoRHa Edition?
The 3C3C1D119440927 Expansion DLC – Released after the original launch of NieR:Automata, the 3C3C1D119440927 Expansion DLC is included in the Game of the YoRHa Edition. It adds a host of new content to the game, including new story, costumes and arena battles.
Three new outfits – the Revealing Outfit for 2B, the Young Man’s Outfit for 9S and the Destroyer Outfit for A2.
A series of challenging battles in three very different colosseums, including literal boss fights with Square Enix’s CEO Yosuke -> Matsuda and Platinum’s CEO Kenichi Sato.
New story elements that expands on NieR:Automata’s fascinating world
New hairsprays and accessories – change the look of 2B and 9S with new hair colours, masks and more.
New Jukebox tracks – critics fell in love with production company MONACA and composer Okabe Keiichi’s soundtrack for NieR:Automata. The included DLC pack adds even more songs to play on the game’s Jukebox.
Pod Skins – includes pod skins such as the Grimoire Weiss Pod, Retro Grey Pod Skin, Retro Red Pod Skin and the Cardboard Pod Skin.
Action-Packed Battles – Players will switch between using melee and ranged attacks in battle against hordes of enemies and challenging bosses across a variety of open field maps. The tight controls and incredibly fluid combat are simple to learn for newcomers while offering plenty of depth for more experienced action gamers. Players can perform high-speed battle actions—combining light and heavy attacks—and switch through an arsenal of weaponry while evading enemies with speed and style.
Beautifully Desolate Open-World – The game seamlessly joins together hauntingly beautiful vistas and locations with no area loading. The environments are rendered in 60fps and contain a wealth of sub-events in addition to the main storyline.

Utilise the Pod Support System to Assist In and Outside of Battle – Pods can attack the enemy in both manual and lock-on modes. They can also assist outside of battle, such as allowing the player to glide through the air. Pods can be enhanced throughout the game, with upgrades including new attack methods and variations.

Lossy VS Lossless
I don’t like lossy compression, but this game proves, that sometimes developers have to use brains.
Most game videos in NieR are in 1600×904 resolution, not even proper FullHD. And developers used extremely high bitrate for them, up to 30 MBbit/second with 30 FPS. Even the July 2021 build still uses too high bitrate!
And I must add, that cutscenes (pre-rendered by game engine into movie files) take more than 50% of game files, occupying 19 GB.
That’s why I made an option for you to download much smaller archive with re-encoded videos.
They still look pretty good at bitrate of 5~6 MBit/sec. You can download this sample and compare:
In example, if you want to launch the game with English UI/Subtitles/Voiceovers and re-encoded videos – skip all “selective” files, but download fg-selective-videos-recoded.bin, fg-selective-english-speech.bin & all main files (01-09).
This repack is NOT backwards compatible with my previous NieR Automata repack.
