A Nier: Automata player has uploaded a video of a secret room never seen before, and players are debating whether it’s real or an elaborate prank.

A Reddit user shared footage of the apparent secret room yesterday (July 25), which contains a hidden door and a room with an incredibly long ladder and a twisting hallway.
Now, the only evidence of this area seems to come from sadfutago, so there’s a bit of lighthearted community infighting as to whether or not this area actually exists in Nier: Automata.
Hello here is the video for the clip i recorded on my ps4 that i put on my usb of the door for the church hallway i uploaded for the discord server. I got a space error because i recorded too long i think. from nier
Some point to a Metal Gear Solid 5 fake that used mods and photoshop as an example of how this can be done, whilst others are sceptical of the poster recreating the Nier: Automata’s movement and such just for what amounts to an elaborate prank.
In the MGS5 example, the user said they were given a test unit of the game from a friend, which they later sold and no longer had. This was a supposed alpha build of the game, but it was quickly deleted with one community member then taking responsibility for the ruse.
Whether real or not, Nier: Automata’s community is torn on the footage, with some saying it’s a legitimately well-hidden secret while others calling it fake.
What we do know is real is the upcoming Nintendo Switch port of the game, which releases on October 6 and includes the base game alongside all of its downloadable content.
