Square Enix Offers New ‘NieR: Automata’ Details: New Areas, Fishing, and Vehicles
After the presentation at the Taipei Game Show, Square enix has offered more details of the new areas that we will see in NieR: Automata, as well as some activities that we can carry out.
As we already mentioned yesterday, one of the new areas is the Amusement Park and an abandoned Shopping Center, but now we will also see the Submerged City.
The Amusement Park has been abandoned for many years, but despite the fact that humans are no longer on the site, it is still fully operational. Apparently a community of robotic mechanical forms has been created in this area, where many individuals have been seen wearing colorful and very striking costumes.
The Submerged City is a collapsed metropolis that is under the sea due to a large-scale war. Only a few skyscrapers are seen above sea level, which manage to offer an idea of what this city was once.
In addition to these two areas, Square Enix has also showcased a new form of unarmed combat. Being unarmed you will activate new movements, your speed will be greater but your attack power will decrease.
During your journey you will meet wild animals that you can ride and use as vehicles. By giving them food, you can ride it but depending on each animal you will have different benefits. If you ride a Deer you can jump great heights, on the other hand if you ride a Wild pig you can run at high speed and make quick movements.
One of the activities that you can do in your leisure periods is fishing. For this, you will only need to launch your Pod into the water and you will be able to catch fish, robots in the form of fish and other things.
But if what you want is to listen to some of the melodies and songs of the game, you will have at your disposal a jukebox in your base of operations where you can listen to them, in addition to being able to alter the chorus, melodies or vowels to suit your tastes.
NieR: Automata It is scheduled for release on February 23 in Japan, March 7 in America and March 10 in Europe for PlayStation 4. A PC version is scheduled to come out in the course of 2017.
