Nier: Automata‘s release date is edging closer, and is you’re struggling with the wait, then why not watch 25 glorious minutes of gameplay courtesy of PlayStation Underground.

As well as showcasing more of the combat, there’s a spot of fishing, some chit chat with NPCs, and more combat.

The game looks lovely and having avoided most of the footage floating around out in the wild, it was interesting to see that you can ride a moose and other creatures to make map traversal a hell of a lot quicker and a smidgen more fun.

Alex recently got a chance to fire off some questions at director Taro Yoko so make sure you check that our for more background on the game.

Nier: Automata is out on March 7 for PS4 in North America, and March 10 in Europe.

The PC release has been confirmed but doesn’t have a release date yet.
