City Ruins Information NieR Automata 

This level is a large open city landscape. Here, players will find starter guidance for quests and several starter items, as well as the Factory where the start of the game took place.

Players will obtain the quest Gathering Intel and go into the city. An inbox email from the commander will alert the player that the possessions lost during the fight with the Goliath-class machine can be recovered if the Factory is visited again. It is advisable to go there soon as the materials come in handy.

After the player has completed the main mission Machine Trade, returning to the city will trigger a boss fight, and change the landscape of the area. After this happens, several other quests become available.
