A Week After Launching On PS4, PC Gets Nier Automata

Steam buyers also receive a special Valve accessory for a limited time.


Following some previous confusion over how much longer PC players would have to wait for Nier: Automata, we now know it will be a matter of only about a week.

Square Enix has confirmed that Nier: Automata launches for Steam on March 17. That's just a matter of days after its PS4 release on March 7 in the US and March 10 in Europe. The demo, unfortunately, remains PS4-only.

Now Playing: NieR: Automata Video Review

As with the PS4 version, a Day One edition will be available that includes bonus digital content. (Unfortunately, you won't get the t-shirt that inspired a delightfully strange video.) You'll receive most of this no matter where you buy the game, but picking it up on Steam for a limited time also nets you a special item that references Valve's loading screen logo.

The Valve character accessory allows you to adorn 2B's head with a red valve in several different places. You can see the four different looks in the gallery below.
