While Nier: Automata recently got pushed back to 2017, the latest news regarding the game is much more positive. The game was originally set to be a PlayStation 4-exclusive, though Square Enix has now revealed that the game will also be coming to PC when it launches next year.
The game is being developed Platinum Games, who is most known for action games like Bayonetta and the recent Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants In Manhattan. While the game will take place within the same world as the original game, it will not be a direct sequel to that game.
As for what this one is all about, the inhabitants of Earth find themselves in hot water when deadly machines are unleashed upon the planet and wreak havoc. This results in humanity fleeing to safety by taking refuge on the moon, while also trying to figure out how to fight back and defeat the machines. They do this by creating new classes of android soldiers, some of which will be featured in the main cast.
We still don’t have an official release date for NieR: Automata, though it is expected to launch early next year. Check out the Steam announcement trailer below.
