Nier: Automata, PlatinumGames’s action-RPG, is on its way to Xbox One later this month on June 26th after launching for PS4 and PC last March.

Square Enix has announced that not only is the game heading for Microsoft’s console, but it’s got a special edition.

The Become As Gods edition will set you back $49.99, and is download only. It includes the base game, and also the 3C3C1D119440927 expansion DLC.

On top of that, there are some cosmetic bonuses as well: The Retro Red Pod skin, the Grimoire Weiss Pod, Cardboard Pod skin, Retro Grey Pod skin, and the Machine Lifeform Mask accessory.

Nier: Automata was out in March of 2017 for the PS4 and PC, and it was critically acclaimed, turning into a bit of a surprise hit for Square Enix.

In fact, it hit a million units sold in about a month, which prompted the game’s creator, Yoko Taro, to go a bit barmy in an amusing video. Check it out.
