Nier: Automata, one of the most beloved games of this console generation, is going to expand to a wider audience soon. The Become As Gods edition of the game--which includes all of the DLC released for the PS4 version--is joining the subscription service on April 2.

The game is coming to the console version of Xbox Game Pass, so PC users are out of luck. But Xbox One players who have not checked out the critically-acclaimed action title will be able to dig into it very soon.

This news comes alongside the reveal of a Nier remake, Nier Replicant Ver. 1.22474487139, which will be based on the Japanese PS3 version of the game (which is a bit different from the version that was released for PS3 and Xbox 360 in the west).

It's been a strong couple of months for Xbox Game Pass, which has added new titles like Ori and the Will of the Wisps, Two Point Hospital, Bleeding Edge, and Yakuza 0 recently.

Nier: Automata received a 9/10 in GameSpot's review. Reviewer Miguel Concepcion found plenty to praise about it: "The combat mechanics click after hurdling a low learning curve, and the end result is a skillful dance where balletic dodges complement wushu-inspired aggression...It's a meaty, often exhilarating trek that showcases Platinum Games' and Yoko Taro's unique blend of genius."
