Nier: Automata Gets Release Date

Runtime: 1:13    Author: UKSquareEnix    Category: Trailers

NieR: Automata – the upcoming game from PlatinumGames and Square Enix – is set to release for PlayStation 4 on March 10, 2017. The action roleplaying game centers around a group of androids, and their battle to reclaim a post-apocalyptic world abandoned by mankind.

From the press release:

Invaders from another world attack without warning—unleashing the machine lifeforms. In the face of this seemingly insurmountable threat, the human race is driven from the earth and takes refuge on the moon.

Humanity develops an army of android soldiers to fight back against the mechanical horde, but succeed only in slowing its advance. To break the deadlock, a new breed of android infantry is sent into the fray: the YoRHa squad.

In the forsaken wasteland below, the war between the machines and the androids rages on. A war that is soon to unveil the long-forgotten truth of this world…

The game also got a brief showing at the PlayStation Experience over the weekend. You can watch the trailer below.

No date has been given for the PC version of the game.

Quite looking forward to this game as it looks really really good.

So many games that I want already next year, getting harder and harder to keep up with buying them all let alone even actually playing them all.

What else do you need to see? o_O

It showed cutscene snippets, combat, exploration, boss fights, puzzles... there's only so much you can do with a 50-second trailer.
