NIER: AUTOMATA’S DYSTOPIAN FUTURE ARRIVES EARLY 2017
New Teaser Trailer Showcases the War-Torn World of Androids 2B, 9S and A2
LOS ANGELES (June 14, 2016) – NieR: Automata™, the SQUARE ENIX® and PlatinumGames developed, action-RPG title, will be available to fans in early 2017 for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system. The highly anticipated follow up to the 2010 cult-classic NIER®, NieR: Automata tells the story of androids 2B, 9S and A2 and their battle to reclaim the mechanoid-driven dystopia overrun by powerful weapons known as “machine lifeforms.”
2B is the main playable character and is an all-purpose battle android deployed as a member of the automated infantry squad, YoRHa. She is equipped with a sword for close quarters combat and the “Pod” support system for ranged battle. Her eyes are obscured beneath her standard-issue military visor, which she rarely removes. 2B is cool, calm, and collected.
Story of NieR: Automata
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…
@GriftGFX: He don't like first person view because he likes to see his waifu and husbando's butt cheeks :P (35 minutes ago)
The biggest difference to me is how your character POV changes. I don't mind third person games it just changes engagements a lot when people can see around corners and over high cover etc. (3 Hours ago)
person multiplayer - I just prefer to see the character I am playing with. (4 Hours ago)
@GriftGFX: I very rarely play 1st person SP games. The only ones I played are FarCry 1/2/3, Doom 3, Halo 1/2/3/4/5. RE7 put me off because of 1st person but I will play it eventually. I dont play 1st (4 Hours ago)
Third person cameras can be a bit annoying in multiplayer shooters since it allows you to move the camera beyond your line of sight. (10 Hours ago)
@alimokrane: Why do you only play third person multiplayer games? Do you only play third person SP games? (10 Hours ago)
