NieR: Automata

The studio also confirmed that fans will be able to try out the demo sometime by the end of 2016.

NieR: Automata Demo Confirmed

Prior to the announcement, the game’s producer Yosuke Saito mentioned that he wanted fans to properly experience the game with a demo being about 30-40 minutes long. Going by this, fans can definitely root for an extensive NieR Automata demo headed their way:

“I want users to properly experience NieR: Automata with a demo of a 30-to-40 minute, sit-down-and-play kind of volume.”

Sadly, Square Enix did not mention a solid release window, but expect it somewhere around the holiday season.

NieR Automata is the sequel to action-RPG NieR and a semi-sequel to the first Drakengard game. Although both earlier games were developed by Cavia, NieR: Automata is being developed by Platinum Games who are known for games like Bayonetta 1 & 2, Wonderful 101, and Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance.

NieR: Automata is scheduled to release on Feb. 23, 2017 for Playstation 4 in Japan. As for European and North American release dates, we have nothing concrete, but the developer is targeting Early 2017 for both PC and Playstation 4.
