When was NieR Automata Announced?

Back in January 2014, Yoko Taro, game director of NieR: Automata, creator of Drakengard, and game director of Drakengard 3, conveyed interest in making a spin-off title from the Drakengard series, but, he did not specify that it would be related to the NieR franchise. In December 2014, Yoko confirmed that he was working on a new game project but did not disclose any more details. In 2015 at Square Enix's press conference during E3, NieR: Automata was announced under the title of Nier New Project. The title was then kept secret to avoid spoilers of the game's plot until a gameplay trailer was revealed at the 2015 Paris Games Week trade show.

NieR: Automata was initially set to release in November of 2016 but to avoid any clash in terms of commercial performance against other titles that Square Enix was going to release, it was delayed until 2017 for the game to succeed commercially — Yoko himself and PlatinumGames Inc. were delighted to have the game delayed since it gave them time to polish the game, improve the quality, and to apply balances to the game.

When was NieR Automata Released?

NieR: Automata was released back on February 23, 2017, in Japan and followed up with a release date on March 7, 2017, for the North America and Europe regions — NieR: Automata is already available to be purchased on your respective platform's online store or your nearest game store.

What are the available Platforms for NieR: Automata?

NieR: Automata is currently available on PC (Steam), Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PlayStation®4. NieR Automata is also playable on current-gen consoles such as the Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation®5.

NieR Automata: Everything We Know So Far

What is NieR Automata?

"The distant future... Earth has suddenly been invaded by extraterrestrial life forms, armed with weapons known as “bio-machines.” Facing imminent destruction, mankind had no choice but to flee the Earth and take refuge on the moon. In an attempt to reclaim their planet, humanity formed a resistance army of android soldiers.

To break through this deadlock and reclaim their homeworld, humanity sends the “YoRHa” – an infantry unit of state-of-the-art androids – into battle. An arduous battle between androids and bio-machines unfolds on an uninhabited, barren planet. And who knows what forgotten truths are revealed in war…"

Playable Characters: YoRHa Units 2B, 96, and A2.

NieR: Automata tells the story of androids 2B, 9S, and A2 and their battle to reclaim the machine-driven dystopia overrun by powerful machines. Humanity has been driven from the Earth by mechanical beings from another world. In a final effort to take back the planet, the human resistance sends a force of android soldiers to destroy the invaders. Now, a war between machines and androids rages on... A war that could soon unveil a long-forgotten truth of the world.

The Setting and Characters for NieR Automata

"To break through this deadlock and reclaim their homeworld, humanity sends the “YoRHa” – an infantry unit of state-of-the-art androids – into battle."

In the year 11945 during the 14th Machine War (sometime after the 4th ending of the original NieR), Earth has suddenly been invaded by extraterrestrial life forms, armed with weapons known as “bio-machines.” Facing imminent destruction, mankind had no choice but to flee the Earth and take refuge on the moon. In an attempt to reclaim their planet, humanity formed a resistance army of android soldiers, and created YoRHA, infantry android units that were sent out to battle against the machina to reclaim Earth — an arduous battle between androids and bio-machines unfolds on an uninhabited, barren planet. And who knows what forgotten truths are revealed in war…

The universe of NieR takes place within an alternate timeline of the Drakengard series and it carries over the Drakengard's culture such as a dark tone with branching storylines and multiple endings. NieR: Automata is set in the year 11945 AD that takes place thousands of years after the end of the original game's events. NieR Automata follows the adventurous battle between the human-made androids, YoRHa, and an army of machines that have invaded Earth — hoping to push back the machine forces to reclaim humanity's planet.

NieR Automata initially gives players the role of the popular YoRHa android, YoRHa No. 2 Type B, better known as 2B, and is accompanied by a male "scanner" android, YoRHa No.9 Type S, or 9S. The two androids show different personalities as 2B is calm, composed, and focused on her task, while 9S demonstrates more emotion and a better understanding of machines compared to other YoRHa units. With two different personalities, 2B and 9S learn to work as a team by using their strengths and supporting each other's weaknesses.

As the player progresses the story and starts multiple playthroughs in NieR Automata, they are thrown challenges against the game's main protagonist, Adam and Eve, who are twin controllers of the Machine Network, the Red Girls, a construct within the Machine Network, and also steps into the shoes of a third playable character, A2, an obsolete attack android with a taciturn personality who often chooses to act alone.


NieR: Automata Ver 1.1a Anime Series

 "There's nothing free in this world, either your family is feeding you, or the system is."

With NieR Automata's commercial success, holding a record of 6.5 million packages/downloads that were sold globally, it was no surprise that more projects would be created to provide veteran and new fans of the series with brand-new content. Five years later since the game's release, the anticipated anime series of NieR: Automata was confirmed, which sent fans of the game, all over the world, into shock. At some point, after several months of silence, more details about the anime have been showcased during Aniplex Online Fest in September 2022 — NieR: Automata Ver1.1a will debut its animated show on January 7, 2023.

Things You Need to Know in NieR Automata

Get Chippy by Installing Chips

Let's start by reminding you that you can alter your perks and abilities by installing Plug-in Chips for your favorite YoRHa android. As you progress throughout the game, you will find Plug-in Chips that will allow you to tinker with 2B's Perks and Abilities. Perks provide the playable character with extra bonuses such as more damage, item drops, increased defense, better evasion, unique abilities, and many more. As exciting as it may sound, you'll need to be smart with choosing which Plug-in Chip to use since you can only allocate a certain number of chips depending on the total number of memory you can use.

As far as Memory goes in NieR Automata, Shop Keepers or Merchants sell Memory, and purchasing these is a must to further expand the amount of Memory. More Memory means more Plug-in Chips! At some point in the game, you will acquire duplicates of a Plug-in Chip, and fusing two chips of the same kind at a shop further boosts the stats and/or bonuses, as well as decreases the amount of memory required for that chip. With a variety of Plug-in Chips, you can have a total of three sets that can be switched between while you roam around. Apart from that, players can also auto-equip a full set of chips that are tailored to a specific style of gameplay. Use this to your advantage so that you can quickly adapt to the situation you are in, especially during boss encounters.

What's Dead Isn't Lost

NieR: Automata can be challenging at times and eventually, you'll die and lose some of your items. Luckily, you can retrieve what you've lost as long as you return to the spot where you died and simply interact with your body to retrieve the item/s. You can do this while you are free roaming or during boss fights that trigger within the main story.

A prompt to recover your body when you walk over it will appear to recover the item/s — just be careful and make sure you don't die along the way as you try to return to the scene of your death, dying right before you retrieve your body will make the items disappear for good.

No Auto-Save in NieR: Automata - Beware!

Let it be known that in NieR: Automata, there is no Auto-Save feature! So always do a quick save and play the game with caution. The game does advise us about this with a small message when starting the game but it doesn't remind us about it later on. Always make a habit of manually saving the game via the menu when you are within safe areas or via the Access Points with Quick Save.

You can save your progress via Access Points, terminals in the Bunker, and manually saving via the pause menu — TIP: try to avoid dying during the Prologue section of the game since it doesn't have any save points that you can use to save your game, if you die, you'll get bumped back to the main menu and lose your progress.

Revive Fallen YoRHa Units: Online Co-op

Yes, NieR: Automata features a co-op mode (sort of) and unfortunately, the game doesn't fully explain this feature or even how it works. When the world finally opens up, where you can freely roam, you'll see a prompt to toggle Online Mode On or Off, we highly recommend that you turn it on and leave it on whenever you play so that you can trigger co-op play from other players who are currently online. As you roam around open areas, you will find bodies of YoRHa units, these are players who are online and recently died in their game.

As you approach a body, you have two options on what to do with it, you can Retrieve or Repair the player's body. Retrieving a body will instantly heal you and provide you with a buff based on what the dead body (player) has, and sometimes, you'll also acquire some G (Money) or items. If you choose to Repair a player's dead body, this will revive its body and an A.I. will help you in combat. After some time it will leave or die if its health is fully depleted during combat.

However, in Route B, as you take control of 9S, we find out that Project Gestalt actually failed after Devola and Popola lost against the Shadowlord, this lead to the destruction of the project and ultimately, all the Devola and Popola android models gathered the Replicant data and sent it off to the moon as a beacon, this resulted as the data relay point that transmitted the human propaganda messages the YoRHa androids received.

          I fell in love with the philosophy of this game during my first play through of the entire game. Now I am on my third play through trying to figure out every hint of philosophy this game posses. I can tell you it is jam-packed and this game effected me on a personal level. As a philosophical thinker, this game challenged everything I thought I knew and tackled question that I never had thought about. Even if not for the philosophical aspect I still give this game 10/10. most Incredible game of our time.
