In the distant future, humans have abandoned their home planet due to an alien invasion. In the meantime, humans built androids like 2B and 9S, the game’s protagonists, to combat the alien’s machines on Earth. NieR: Automata's philosophy is rooted in existentialism, and to see it explored in humanoid, mechanical characters in an age where automation and the singularity are just around the corner makes the tale more fascinating.
People who play NieR: Automata need to learn to expect the unexpected. It steps outside of its comfort zone too often for you to become comfortable. For a game about questioning your purpose and identity, NieR: Automata seems comfortable in its own skin. It constantly makes you think in the most entertaining ways. Make sure you check it out on the PlayStation 4 and PC.
