Nier: Automata Steam brings you into an outlandish, stylish, bizarre, yet breathtaking and vastly unique dystopian sci-fi world developed by the collective genius of Platinum Games’ and the eccentric Yoko Taro, the creative director behind Square Enix’s Drakengard series and the original Nier spin-off. Literally, there’s nothing simple about Nier: Automata and Yoko Taro is the man to be praised for it. The game is a true hybrid of genres, it blends elements of third-person action RPG, twin-stick shooter, 2.5D platformer, hack-and-slasher, bullet hell-style, and even text adventures. And it works! The end result seems to completely fit the overall picture.
Buy Nier: Automata Steam and sink into an epic adventure that will keep you tightly shackled to your screen for over 30 incredible hours of playtime. The game boasts with incredible combat, character progression, and storyline intricacies, though what makes it really unique is every other detail that many great games don’t even consider. For example, in the sci-fi driven, machine-infested, dystopian world, you’ll meet teenage-like characters who act like they are in the very midst of their puberty, control a gothic android Lolita protagonist, seamlessly run through dessert in heels, ride a moose or a boar, and even have the option to end your own life!
Buy Nier: Automata Steam and explore a magnificent open-world setting which is sure to captivate you, not by its size, but by its character. The in-game world isn’t that huge (imagine a medium-sized city), however, an incredible sense of vastness and freedom is achieved with such locations as steaming deserts, lush jungles, and abandoned concrete remains, these are scattered all throughout the playground. Parkouring plays a huge role to ease your mobility, though, swift mounts and the fast travel system is also in the mix. The areas you’ll traverse connect with one another in a seamless manner and the transition between them blends with the game’s tone perfectly.
Nier: Automata Steam offers you a story that you won’t be able to forget long after the end credits hit the screen. The game borrows the narrative you think you’ve heard about for multiple times already. Distant dystopian future, the earth is shattered, humanity is forced to hide and is on the brink of extinction, and some horrible enemy is now the new ruler – pretty standard. However, the way in which this title accomplishes and executes these narrative ideas is simply outstanding. With Nier Automata Steam you’ll be controlling a female android known as 2B, and a bit later in the game, another android (driven by AI) known as 9C, will join you. Together you’ll become the last hope for humans who are currently hiding on the moon.
The interesting thing about the game’s story is that it has multiple endings. And much like the previously mentioned games in the series, ‘the ending’ with Nier: Automata Steam pretty much doesn’t mean anything meaningful. After you get to the ending for the first time, the game provides you with more questions than answers, and the best part about it is that you can continue following the new leads, and the piece itself encourages you for it too! There are five important, or rather, endings to the game’s story (plus multiple endings on the side) and after each one, you’ll unlock new features, new cutscenes, and go further and further within the complex narrative puzzle that the developers have set. Rest assured, it’s very much worth it aiming for the ‘grand finale’.
While Yoko Taro has made sure that the Nier: Automata Steam would look, sound, and feel exceptional, Platinum Games have taken the in-game controls and mechanics into their hands, and it can be felt right from the very first moment you’ll swing your weapon. This astonishing piece has combat that is smooth, stylish, mechanically subtle, and boasts with variability. Wield an arsenal of weapons from fists to spears, to knives, to humongous 2-handed swords. You’ll be able to switch between your arsenal, dodge or dash on the incoming attacks, perform numerous heavy/light attacks with combo sequences, and much more! The unprecedented in-game fighting is both involving and entertaining on the highest scale.
Aside from the combat and exploration, Nier: Automata Steam offers plenty of activities to surprise you with. The in-game world, even though isn’t exceptionally big, is bursting with life. The NPC characters are fine-tuned and polished to perfection and numerous side-quests and errands perfectly meld with your main questline and are not the least bit less entertaining. The will keep on surprising you the further you go, and the question of what’s next is constantly on the horizon. If you’re a fan of the previous entries in the series, the deeper into the lore you dig, the more symbolism and lore details from Drakengard you’ll discover. You can also partake in fishing and hunting!
So, buy Nier: Automata Steam and fight, explore, discover, experience, and challenge the game right until you reach the very last of the five endings. And while you’re on your way to achieving your goal, an exceptional music track will accompany you all throughout your astounding journey. The game’s music score is simply mesmerizing. The instrumental and vocal mixes interwove with one another to create a melody that will touch upon the very depths of the heart. The tracks will change according to what you’ll do and where you’ll go, and it’s never repetitive! The robotic blips and bloops are followed by the drums’ march when in battle, and sweet and smothering melodies follow while in travel. With Nier: Automata Steam, such transition between the tracks is seamless and almost non-apparent and you’re sure to love it!
