To celebrate NieR: Automata’s first anniversary (and critical success of more than two million units), Square Enix has announced that it will host a fan event for the game, to be announced later this year. This, of course, is done in the most Yoko Taro way possible, with a web video featuring Yoko Taro released to commemorate the announcement. In addition, the game is currently fifty percent off on PlayStation 4 and Steam until March 20 and 14, respectively.
Since the launch of the game on the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and STEAM® last year, NieR:Automata’s shipment and digital sales have exceeded two million units and the game has received critical acclaim across the world for its deep, captivating storyline and fantastic blend of action-packed and high-speed 60fps battles. Developed in collaboration with PlatinumGames Inc., NieR:Automata delivers the perfect mix of action and RPG gameplay in a beautifully desolate open world.
For anyone yet to jump in to the dystopian world of NieR:Automata, a 50% discount is available for those who purchase from the PlayStation®Store for the PlayStation®4 system until March 20th and STEAM until March 14th.
