NieR: Automata

You can finally give Nier: Automata a try. The demo releases worldwide today for the Playstation 4. The demo follows 2B as she takes down enemies in an abandoned factory.

Along with the demo, Square Enix released a new trailer detailing the collaboration with the Dragon Quest franchise and Final Fantasy XV.  In the game, 2B will be able to wield the “Cypress Stick” along with Noctis’s “Engine Blade.”

Nier: Automata releases in North America on March 7th and Europe on March 10th. A special Black Box Edition, which comes with such goodies as a figure of 2B, can be purchased exclusively at Square Enix’s online store.

    I don’t have my PS4 with me during the holidays, but I will definitely check out this demo once I get back. I’m on the fence about this game and the demo can really convince me to get it.

      If u luv Platinum games, u will luv this or at least like it.

    • Mr0303

      My appreciation for Platinum games is varied. I loved Bayonetta, but nothing after it really impressed me. There were a couple of bad titles and a couple of average ones. We’ll see how this one will turn out to be.

      I’ll try the demo soon.

    I’ve been hearing good things, but I want to go in blind on release date.

    I am glad that demos are a thing again!

    • Lord Ackercocke

      Go on…..give that demo a taste.
