NieR: Automata - 3C3C1D119440927 DLC Launch Trailer | PS4
I'm not going to begrudge the developers for building a piece of DLC that's heavily tailored for high-level play. In fact, I'm quite glad that it is as it is, as, aside from a secret boss or two, there really wasn't all that much high-level content in the base game. The downside to this strategy is, of course, that it makes the DLC a tough sell to anyone who hasn't progressed that far, or to someone who enjoys the game on a far more casual level. For as much as I enjoyed my time with 3C3C1D119440927, this is definitely one for the more ardent of NieR fanatics.
Lasting a few hours, this additional content may be too brief to justify a purchase from those with only a fleeting interest in the game. One of its three colosseums is frustrating to play, and the only new musical track can hardly be heard over cheering sound effects. However, for hardcore fans, three new varied challenges, a secret boss fight, a range of customisation items and a tragic story that lives up to the base game makes what was already one of video gaming's greatest accomplishments even better.
