Nier: Automata gets new gameplay footage, story details and trailer

Watch the new trailer for Nier: Automata, the sequel to the popular action rpg from the PS3 era!

It's been an important week for Sony. Paris Games Week has seen a few notable announcements, and one of those is the sequel to 2010's Nier. Titled Nier: Automata, the game will be a PlayStation 4 exclusive releasing in 2016. 

The game was announced at this year's E3, but the new trailer gives us a little insight into the gameplay and story aspects of this Platinum Games-developed RPG. Producer Yosuke Saito has held off on revealing any story details until now, as he didn't want any spoilers released. But now he's ready to talk:

"The world that you see in Nier: Automata is one where androids and mechanized weapons clash in ferocious combat and deserted wasteland."

Fans of the original will see some familiar faces. Twitter has already seen a few excited reactions to the promise of returning characters. 

It seems like the game will attract old and new fans alike.
