NieR: Automata

Square Enix today confirmed that NieR: Automata, the upcoming action-RPG developed by PlatinumGames, will launch on Steam alongside the previously-announced PlayStation 4 version of the game in early 2017. The sequel to 2010’s dark PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 RPG developed by studio Cavia, NieR: Automata tells the story of androids 2B, 9S and A2 and their battle to reclaim a machine-driven dystopia overrun by powerful weapons known as machine lifeforms.

NieR: Automata is being developed by an all-star team consisting of producer Yosuke Saito (Dragon Quest X / NieR), director Yoko Taro (Drakengard / NieR), character designer Akihiko Yoshida from CyDesignation, Inc. (Final Fantasy XIV / Bravely Default), game designer Takahisa Taura from PlatinumGames Inc. (Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance), and composer Keiichi Okabe from MONACA, Inc. (Tekken/ Drakengard 3 / NieR).
