nier_1-660x370

People waiting for the new NieR: Automata can get their hand on a demo December 22nd.

Square Enix confirmed the release of the DEMO 120161128, a demo for the game made to show off its action gameplay. While the demo won’t carry over into the main game, it’ll give you an idea of what’s to come.

NieR: Automata will be releasing in America on March 7th. A PC release is also planned for 2017, but no specific date has been announced. In case you missed it, you should read up on the game’s various packages, most especially its swanky limited edition.

    That’s great. I won’t have to go to my Japanese account to get it. Platinum’s recent record has been less than stellar, so the combat could sell me on this game.

    I don’t expect this to be a typical Platinum game in terms of combat, their main concern seems to be fixing the mediocre gameplay of the first Nier, but IMO the main appeal of the game would remain its world, story and general weirdness.

    I wasn’t impressed with those in the first Nier (granted I didn’t play too much of it), so the main draw for me is the combat.

    Cool, thought this is basically a blind buy for me, don’t think I need to jump on the demo. Can’t wait.

    It’s honestly exciting to me that a Yoko Taro game would finally have some functioning gameplay.

    DOOM, Dying Light, RE7 and NieR just to name a few. Glad to see demos are finally making a comeback.

    Dang it. I want to see what can run it before actually buying it.

    I’m sure they will have a demo for the PC version as well but I think they need to give us a release date first.

    If you notice though most of if not all of the shitty plat games that have come out recently have all been published by activision.

    I’m guessing Sony just paid them to shut up about the PC version being a thing until just before release, as they tend to do with games quite often.

    Awesome. Taro can tell some of the best stories when he isn’t fixated on complaining about what other game devs do in their own games. And tge idea of Platinum adapting the gameplay into something more fun gets me hyped ^^

    Just hope that it actually runs at 60 fps on the PS4. :-)

    This is Platinum, nigger. They always fucking deliver 60 fps, and its native development platform is PS4. Just hope that your $5000 rig is strong enough stabilize at 60 fps with an unoptimized PC port.

    Yeah no. check this out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JzM0pHy7B2s

    TMNT Mutants In Manhattan was locked at 30fps on all platforms. And seeing how the PS4 was too weak to play a PS3 game at 60fps I would say you need to be worried kid. And please don’t delete your comment and run away this time. :-)

    Who developed it kid? Besides Nier is not owned by Platinum either. You Sony Slaves never do any research and just speak with emotion instead of logic, just like cultist members.
