It’s been an important week for Sony. Paris Games Week has seen a few notable announcements, and one of those is the sequel to 2010’s Nier. Titled Nier: Automata, the game will be a PlayStation 4 exclusive releasing in 2016.
The game was announced at this year’s E3, but the new trailer gives us a little insight into the gameplay and story aspects of this Platinum Games-developed RPG. Producer Yosuke Saito has held off on revealing any story details until now, as he didn’t want any spoilers released. But now he’s ready to talk:
“The world that you see in Nier: Automata is one where androids and mechanized weapons clash in ferocious combat and deserted wasteland.”
Fans of the original will see some familiar faces. Twitter has already seen a few excited reactions to the promise of returning characters.

Just saw the #NieRAutomata game play. Never played the original, but damn if I’m not going to shove this game straight into my veins.
