Already high on my lists of expected greats for early 2017, Nier:Automata just dropped a demo for the PS4, and it’s amazing. Seriously, go download this thing right now.
Suddenly skyrocketing to my number one most anticipated game of 2017, Automata drops you in the shoes of B2, a young android on a mission to identify a large hidden weapon being developed by a group of questionable personalities.Things quickly so sideways and you’re dumped into a combination of buttery smooth combat, bullet-hell third person rapid fire shooting, and entertaining platforming wrapped in a shell of beautiful 60fps visuals. Being developed by Platinum games, the same group that brought us Bayonetta, Metal Gear Rising, and Vanquish, you know to expect over the top fights and mind melting action sequences. Considering Platinum has made some of my favorite games of all time, I’m confident in their ability to provide an incredible experience, especially after blowing through the riveting demo.
Nier: Automata is being released in march for the PS4 with PS4 Pro support in toe, and is said to get a PC release as well.
