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…
Anybody help with this no power on PC problem before I start buying parts? :/ (31 minutes ago)
As shown/discussed in this slide: [url] (51 minutes ago)
Okay.. I'm 99% sure that's not single player or multiplayer but combined arms, the new co-op mode. They actually talk about it before showing the trailer, showing the squad and how it works etc. (52 minutes ago)
The guy who cut the trailer has been hard at work on the editing for weeks and has been vocally proud of what they were releasing. (55 minutes ago)
Of course EA has influence on DICE, but saying that trailer is "on EA" is just silly. (57 minutes ago)
It's unreal that people think that executives are actually like in design meetings and have direct control over these things. (58 minutes ago)
It's fantasy that EA aren't pulling the strings? OK, then. Unreal how anyone can be of a certain age and be so naive about these things. (59 minutes ago)
