That ellipses gets you a lot.

Square Enix has announced extra content that will come as part of the package when NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139... arrives on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC this Friday. That content comes on top of preorder bonuses previously revealed.

According to a press release, NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139... added content includes additional story content, extra dungeons and costumes and a playable soundtrack. Naturally, the game also updates the visuals of the PS3 original, which by now is getting a bit long in the tooth.

The extra content, as outlined by the press release, is as follows:

  • Extra Episode - Players can enjoy a new scenario and exhilarating boss battle by playing through the game, in an all new "Mermaid" episode featuring a wrecked ship and a little girl.

  • Extra Dungeons from "15 Nightmares" - Previously released as downloadable content for the original release in Japan and similar to "The World of Recycled Vessel" content in the West, fans will be able to undertake a series of challenging dungeons as the "15 Nightmares" protagonist in the world of recycled vessel. Playing through the dungeons will unlock a variety fo weapons, as well as extra costumes, "Kabuki" and "Samurai." You will also be able to change the appearance of enemy bullets to Emil's face through the option menu after obtaining either of the costumes.

  • Soundtrack from NieR:Automata - Players will unlock an option to switch to select background music tracks from the critically acclaimed Nier:Automata after completing the first playthrough.

  • Guest Cast from NieR:Automata - The English and Japanese voice actors of 2B and 9S will be featured in the game.
Square Enix further announced that players will be able to download a free "4 YoRHa" costume pack to swap their character's costumes and weapons so they appear as designs from NieR:Automata.

Though the game arrives soon, there's still time to pre-order it and enjoy a mini-soundtrack featuring three tracks from the White Snow Edition soundtrack: "Hills of Radiant Wind," "Song of the Ancients" and "Kaine." While all versions of the game include a digital copy of that soundtrack as a bonus to early buyers, additional bonuses vary by platform:
  • PlayStation 4 - an exclusive system dynamic theme and 14-avatar set.

  • Xbox One - Nothing, and Square Enix has stressed in tiny print that Xbox One users "can only play the mini soundtrack in-game only via a designated app" because music data "cannot be extracted outside the console."

  • Steam - A digital wallpaper collection.
