NeiR Automata is releasing soon on the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Underground was able to get some gameplay & information about the title. Spanning a 25 Minute video and lengthy blog post, we learn a lot about how the RPG elements function in this combat-heavy adventure. Platinum Games continues to impress and we will report further information about the title as it comes out. Below will be key sections from the blog post I found to be important but you can read the full piece by clicking here.
The 14th Machine War is upon us, and that means other androids need help. Things break, things go haywire, and as a member of the elite YoRHa squad, it’s part of your job to aid the Resistance and do what’s necessary to win the war. Aside from the main storyline, you will find hubs that provide plenty of side quests to enrich your experience as you attempt to reclaim the planet for mankind.
The world is in ruins, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t hidden caches strewn across the harsh, dystopian landscapes. The game is open world, and with double jumps, mid-air dashes, and super speed, 2B can reach heights and treasures that no mere human ever could.
Mankind has fled to the moon… but life is not completely gone. Yes, don’t forget about the wildlife that inhabits Earth! Using special items to lure them, you can mount creatures to traverse the world and even attack your foes until they’re scrap metal.
