Known modder Lance McDonald has uncovered NieR Automata‘s “final” secret nearly four years after the game’s launch. It’s a cheat code that permits gamers to get to the final ending after killing the primary boss, and unlock bonus modes.

Two years in the past, director Yoko Taro had hinted that a secret inside NieR Automata had but to be found. McDonald spent “hundreds” of hours reverse engineering the sport to determine it out. “So I found the often alluded to ‘final secret’ in NieR Automata; a cheat code that can only be entered while standing in one particular place, at one specific moment in the game, which unlocks Chapter Select, Debug Mode, the Debug Room, and the Trophy Shop, as well as a few other items, saving the player from having to do three playthroughs of the game to unlock these,” McDonald defined. “A ton of work went into this so I hope you think it’s cool too!”
