New Teaser Trailer Showcases the War-Torn World of Androids 2B, 9S and A2
LONDON (14th June 2016) – NieR: Automata™, the SQUARE ENIX and PlatinumGamesInc. developed, action-RPG title, will be available to fans in Europe and PAL territories 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 machine-driven dystopia overrun by powerful mechanoids.
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.
