Nier: Automata is coming out soon from Square Enix. To help celebrate the occasion Square Enix has just released a new video that showcases various RPG elements.

By using up to three Pods at the same time, players can also charge their skills to make them up to three times stronger.

  • Riding System - Players can ride boars and other wildlife for quicker travel, while also using them to attack.

  • Quest Hub - As players immerse themselves in the desolate world, they can take on a variety of sub-quests from multiple Quest Hubs scattered throughout.

  • Fishing Minigame - Players can catch a variety of fish through this mini-game to sell or gain temporary beneficial status effect.

    ”Invaders from another world attack without warning, unleashing their secret weapon: the machines. In the face of this insurmountable threat, the human race is driven from the earth and takes refuge on the moon.

    The humans develop an army of android soldiers to fight back against the mechanical horde, but succeed only in slowing its advance. To break the deadlock, a new breed of android infantry is sent into the fray: the YoRHa squad.

    In the forsaken wasteland below, the war between the machines and the androids rages on. A war that is soon to unveil the long-forgotten truth of this world…”
