About Nier: Automata

Nier: Automata is the next game in the Nier franchise and is a collaboration between Square Enix and PlatinumGames. Earth has suddenly been invaded by beings from another planet and mechanical life forms with overwhelming power were used as weapons of war which forced mankind to flee to the moon. In order to take back the earth, a resistance force of android warriors has been created by humanity to fight these invaders.
