Square Enix and PlatinumGame’s action RPG NieR: Automata will indeed make it to PC starting March 17th. Pre-orders are now live.
From the press release, “Developed in collaboration with PlatinumGames Inc., NieR: Automata tells the story of androids 2B, 9S, and A2, and their ferocious battle to reclaim a machine-driven dystopia abandoned by humankind and overrun by machine lifeforms.
“Those who pre-purchase the Steam® Day One Edition will receive an exclusive “Valve Character Accessory,” as well as other Day One Edition bonus content, including the Machine Mask Accessory, Grimoire Weiss Pod, Retro Grey Pod Skin, Retry Red Pod Skin, and Cardboard Pod Skin.”
NieR: Automata will be available on PS4 on March 7th in North America, on the 10th in Europe. You can pre-order the PC edition on Steam here.
NieR has been out in Japan since February and has done incredibly well. Other NieR news includes rumors of an Xbox One version which were quickly dashed, and some extensive gameplay footage. And that Nintendo bit was removed from the game after players found it distasteful.
