NieR: Automata Gets Extended Gameplay Look With New Trailer

Square Enix has just released a 27-minute gameplay video for NieR: Automata. The video explores the different gameplay aspects and shows off all the different activities players will have available to them.

The video shows off a few of NieR: Automata’s unique features. This includes the “Reliquary” system, which allows players to loot their own body and attempt to repair it when they die, and the “Plug-in-Chip” system, which uses various chips to increase skills.

The video also takes a look at  17 different pod skills, mounts, quest hubs, and fishing. Here’s everything the in-depth video covers:

  • “Reliquary” System – Players can return to where their characters were defeated to gain additional buffs, or even gain an ally to assist in their battle against the fearsome machines.
  • 17 Different Pod Skills – Using “Pods,” your mini-robot companions, players can not only temporarily hover or be thrown distances to access additional areas, but each Pod can be programmed with a variety of offensive and defense skills, including lasers, hammers, and more. By using up to three Pods at the same time, players can also charge their skills to make them up to three times stronger.
  • “Plug-in-Chip” System – By installing chips into your android body, players can increase damage and add skills to help survive against enemies.
  • 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.

NieR: Automata is set to launch March 7th for the PlayStation 4 with a PC version coming later.
