Nier Automata, the new action role playing game currently in development by Square Enix in collaboration with action games masters Platinum Games, has been revealed last year to pretty much everybody's surprise. While the original game gathered its own loyal following during the course of the years, nobody expected to see a new entry of the series. With the game's getting closer to release, the Japanese publisher is ready to show more of it in action.
A few hours ago, Square Enix shared a new Nier Automata trailer in time for the E3 2016, showcasing the game's characters and locations, and some incredibly intense action. You can check out the trailer right below.
Invaders from another world attack without warning, unleashing their secret weapon: the machines. In the face of this insurmountable threat, the human race is driven from the earth and takes refuge on the moon.
The humans develop 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…
Unfortunately, it's not all good news for Nier Automata at the E3 2016. Square Enix confirmed that the game will be released in early 2017, and not during 2016 as previously announced. The game looks quite good already, so the extra development time will allow the team to make an even better game.
Nier Automata launches in early 2017 on PlayStation 4.
