Just ahead of the holidays, there’s a new NieR: Automata 2B mod for the PC version of the game that gives her a Santa outfit. EM4V2 uploaded the new option to NexusMods. When applied, it changes two of her dresses into more festive ones.
Two outfits are covered in this mod. Her standard black dress ends up red with white fur lining and a black belt. The one based on Kaine’s look from NieR Replicant is red with white fur lining and black ribbons. To install it, people need to download it from Nexus Mods, then place it in their data folder.
Here’s a closer look at EM4V2’s XMAS 2B NieR: Automata outfit mod, via screenshots taken by the creator.
This isn’t the only Santa-related outfit for 2B available for the PC version of NieR: Automata. Eraser3000 released 2C – a 2B’s Christmas Retexture back in December 2019. That recolors her base outfit in red and white. DevolasRevenge shared Christmas Hat 2B in December 2020. That leaves 2B’s outfit the same, but gives her a Santa hat to wear.
There are an array of mods for the game out there. Many involve the characters. For example, one changes A2 into Tifa.
NieR: Automata is available for the Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
