Being an Xbox-centric website, it’s always upsetting to see a brilliant game garner attention on another platform and not be available to play on our favourite console. That was certainly the case with 2017’s Nier: Automata which came in the top 10 releases for the PS4 last year.
E3 has made us all smile this morning then, with the news that it will be coming to Xbox One extremely soon. By soon, I refer to the announced June 26th release date! To sweeten the deal further, Xbox gamers will be getting the Become as Gods edition, including all previously released DLC.
“Developed in collaboration with PlatinumGames Inc., NieR:Automata delivers the perfect mix of action and RPG gameplay in a beautifully desolate open world as players battle as androids 2B, 9S and A2 in the fight to reclaim the world for their human creators.
Following the game’s initial release in 2017, the action-RPG has shipped more than three million physical and digital copies worldwide and has received critical acclaim across the world for its deep, captivating storyline and fantastic blend of action-packed and high-speed battles.
NieR: Automata features an all-star development team consisting of producer Yosuke Saito (DRAGON QUEST® X / NIER®), director YOKO TARO (Drakengard® / NIER), game designer Takahisa Taura from PlatinumGames Inc. (Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance), character designer Akihiko Yoshida from CyDesignation, Inc. (FINAL FANTASY® XIV / BRAVELY SECOND™: End Layer), and composer Keiichi Okabe from MONACA, Inc. (TEKKEN / Drakengard / NIER).”
Keep an eye out for a review on this one – we can’t wait!
