The NieR: Automata Demo’s Getting A Worldwide Debut




Yesterday, we learned that NieR: Automata’s demo would come to Japan on December 22, 2016. Today, Square Enix has issued an update that makes that trial a little less exclusive. On December 22, 2016, people in Japan, North America, and Europe will all be able to go through “DEMO 120161128.”


As mentioned earlier, YoRHa 2B is the star of the NieR: Automata demo. The android will be heading into an abandoned factory as part of her quest to help mankind retake Earth. In one of the released screenshots for the demo, we see her facing a robot many times larger than she is.


NieR: Automata will come to Japanese PlayStation 4s on February 23, 2017. North America will get the console version of the game on March 7, 2017, and Europe gets it March 10, 2017. The PC debut is set for 2017.
