NieR: Automata last secret discovered almost 4 years after release

A new secret cheat code has been discovered in NieR: Automata that allows you to skip the entire game to the last ending after beating the first boss. It appears to be the "last NieR: Automata secret" which NieR: Automata director Yoko Taro said that players have yet to discover back in March 2018 in Famitsu magazine.

The secret has been found by video game modder Lance McDonald by reverse engineering the engine of the game. After the cheat code has been entered Chapter Select, Debug Mode, the Debug Room, and the Trophy Shop, as well as a few other items will be unlocked.

After Lance McDonald tweeted about his discovery, Yoko Taro confirmed that after 3 years and 10 months the final secret of the game has been found. Lance McDonald released a video explaining how the secret can be activated. Please note that this video contains spoilers.

NieR: Automata is the sequel to NieR and has been released in 2017 on PlayStation 4 and PC. In 2018 the game was ported to Xbox One.
