PS4's Nier: Automata Gets a Free Demo Later This Month
Set aside some time on December 22.
Shortly after announcing a release date for it, Square Enix today confirmed a demo for Nier: Automata that arrives soon.
Automata's demo launches on the PS4's PlayStation Store on December 22. There's no word on how expansive it will be or what it will consist of, save for the basic premise. "With an abandoned factory as the backdrop, the demo follows android 2B's mission to destroy a massive enemy weapon that lies within," the press release states.
There's no word on a PC release for the demo. Automata is coming to both Steam and PS4 in 2017, but only the PS4 version has a specific date: March 7.
Besides the date, Square Enix also recently announced two different versions of the game. A Day One edition will come with reversible box art and digital content, while a Black Box edition includes a special box, 2B Figurine, artbook, steelbook case, soundtrack, and the Day One edition's digital goodies. The Black Box edition is only available through Square Enix's online store, where it's priced at $190.
