Square Enix has released a new trailer for NieR: Automata during PlayStation’s Tokyo Game Show 2016 Conference. The new trailer also reveals that the game is releasing on February 23, 2017 for PlayStation 4 and PC in Japan.
The game follows a story where invaders from another world attack without warning, unleashing their secret weapon: the machines. In the face of this insurmountable threat, the human race is driven from the earth and takes refuge on the moon. The humans develop an army of android soldiers to fight back against the mechanical horde, but succeed only in slowing its advance. To break the deadlock, a new breed of android infantry is sent into the fray: the YoRHa squad. In the forsaken wasteland below, the war between the machines and the androids rages on. A war that is soon to unveil the long-forgotten truth of this world.
