PS4's Nier: Automata Demo Is Out Now
The 4.4 GB demo is now available on the PlayStation Store in North America.
Unlike the original Nier, this one is developed by Bayonetta and Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance developer Platinum Games. As described in a press release earlier this month, "With an abandoned factory as the backdrop, the demo follows android 2B's mission to destroy a massive enemy weapon that lies within."
The PlayStation Store description for the demo expands on that a little further. "[J]oin androids 2B and 9S and their ferocious battle to reclaim a machine-driven dystopia overrun by powerful machine lifeforms," it says. "Experience a glimpse of the action-packed and high-speed battles rendered in fluid 60 FPS, against hordes of enemies within a beautifully desolate open world. Nier: Automata is a fresh take on the action role-playing game genre that gracefully blends mesmerising action with a captivating story."
The demo is a 4.4 GB download. You can grab it for free here.
Publisher Square Enix also today released a trailer showing off two crossover items that will be available in the game: Final Fantasy XV's Engine Blade and Dragon's Quest's Cypress Stick. You can see those in the video below.
