On February 21, 2017, Square Enix uploaded the newest trailer “Arsenal of Elegant Destruction” for their upcoming game NieR: Automata to YouTube.
“Arsenal of Elegant Destruction” highlights the game’s four unique weapon types: small sword, large swords, spears, and combat bracers. These weapons can be changed during attacks to create unique combos. Unlockable skills bring valuable upgrades and additional abilities to weapons, including the “Pod” ranged support system.
NieR: Automata is an action RPG developed by Platinum Games and published by Square Enix for PS4 (and later PC). Taking place on a post-apocalyptic Earth within the NieR universe, the story follows combat android YoRHa No.2 Type B (2B) and her companion YoRHa No.9 Type S (9S). 2B and 9S fight to survive in the midst of a proxy war between machines, which were created by alien invaders, and the last remnants of humanity.
