PC users interested in Nier: Automata, and who don’t own a PlayStation 4, will be pleased to know it’s coming to Steam.


The game was announced at E3 2015 and the game’s subtitle was revealed the following October.

Automata tells the story of androids 2B, 9S and A2 and their battle to “reclaim a machine-driven dystopia” overrun by machine lifeforms.

Square Enix’s Taro Yoko is directing the project, with Platinum Games’ Osaka and Tokyo offices handling development. Characters were designed by CyDesignation’s Akihiko Yoshida, and Nier’s original composer, Keiichi Okabe is handling the soundtrack.

The game will be released sometime next year on both PS4 and PC.
