It all started with one question: “How do you get into the church?” The answer, it seems, is simple: you don’t—at least not yet. Yeah, Nier: AutomataThe confusing secret door was just a sophisticated mod.

If you haven’t followed, Nier: Automatasecret door It had all the makings of a pantheonic game secret. Two months ago, one Nir A player known only as his Reddit handle, Sadfutago, started asking around in niche reddits about a secret church. but Nier: AutomataAn action-RPG developed by PlatinumGames and released in 2017 didn’t quite fit that description, causing the few who paid attention to call it crap.

Finally, Sedfutago published video evidence of this discoverylocated in the copied city, a level of Nier: Automata which lacks color and texture, giving it the appearance of a game in its early stages of development. That clip — and subsequent, broader ones — shocked the community. Some fans thought this was a legitimate example of cut or hidden content Nier: Automata. Others realized that it was completely fake, either a fake or a fad or a viral marketing campaign by Nir Director Yoko Taro, who is no stranger to hijinks. (Here is a complete summary of the entire saga.) still did more of what the Internet does best: Forget it.

Well, it turns out that the entire area was the work of three modders: Devolas Revenge, who designed the geography and architecture; Woeful_Wolf, who tools in Mixer; and RaiderB who wrote the script tools. DevolasRevenge says they plan to make everything public, but not for a few days Kotaku. This is a week. They are tired.

It was originally supposed to be a little joke to show people, and we fully expected that data miners like Lance [McDonald] And Grojdg to shoot us down in two seconds.” DevolasRevenge says. “But they also questioned it.”

A statement from modders reveals the truth behind Nier: Automata's secret door.

At first, the film looked legit. But over the past few days, Sadfutago’s posts have included gifts from the dead. one of Their latest posts on Reddit Mentioned “Zinnia” – a special aspect of Nir Legend – which showed that the Centipedes, whoever they were, were wiser than they let on. In addition, the entire church area includes properties from Nier: ReplicantA newer remaster released in 2021. The notion that a base version of a 2017 game could include character models from a 2021 game is a stretch. (This discovery was widely believed to have been made in version 1.00 of the game – meaning it was not affected by any post-release patches or updates.)

DevolasRevenge said: “In the end, I thought most people thought it was a mod. “I didn’t mean to mislead anyone.”

DevolasRevenge said some people “seem to be taking it negatively.” But further particle for direct object Nir Fix DiscordAt least, people are mostly in good spirits. They joke that their assumptions have been confirmed that something is wrong with the church. Some fruitful Nir Modders are pumped to get started with a new set of tools. while Nier: Automata The modding tools are fairly sophisticated, modders haven’t been able to change the game environment to the extent seen in the church videos.

“It’s going to have a huge impact on the community,” said Meowsandstuff, a member of the forum. Nir It told me that the reforming community and a leading figure in the hunt to prove the secret door was not what it seemed. “While we used to have tools to make similar things, from my understanding a lot of the newer stuff is more developed and user-friendly.”

As part of his detective work, Mewsandstaff was designing his own version of the Secret Church. The architecture of the area was quite distinct, but it fell apart whenever you tried to walk down the main corridor to the church. He is now planning to polish The progress it has made so far. He removes the rest, then uses new tools for a number of other ideas, including one that Nier: Automata The low-key look of the copied city map (which, by the way, looks dope AF).

“Honestly, I’m pretty cool,” Meowsandstuff said. “I wanted to believe that it could have been something that wasn’t a mod, but now knowing that it is a mod and knowing that we have access to the tools to make things like this has really energized me.”
