Publisher Square Enix released a demo for Nier: Automata today. PlayStation 4 owners can now try out a chunk of PlatiumGames’ action-RPG, with the download coming in at 4.4GB. A new trailer was also released, showcasing some of the game’s crossover weapons in action.
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…
Nier: Automata is set to release on March 10, 2017 for the PlayStation 4. A PC version is also in the works, but that has no firm release date.
