The anticipated follow up to Square Enix’s cult-classic NieR, NieR: Automata will be touching ground in North America, 2017.
Neir: Automata continues the story of its predecessor; humanity is forced off the Earth by an invading alien race and their army of machines. The humans move to the moon and set up a base where the create an army of androids to battle the machines. When the battle doesn’t make any significant movement for mankind, the YoRHa squad is sent in; a new breed of android infantry.
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
Neir: Automata is currently in development and will be available for Playstation 4 in 2017
