After long bouts of silence, Square Enix has finally announced NieR: Automata's PC release date: March 17, 2017.




NieR: Automata will be exclusive to Steam and apparently won't launch on Microsoft's Windows Store platform, which isn't a surprise since the game won't come to Xbox One either. The incoming PC release will be a simultaneous global launch similar to Final Fantasy XV's cross-regional release.


If you're interested in pre-ordering Square Enix is pulling one of their signature goofy pre-order bonuses for the Steam launch: pre-orders will unlock an awesome Valve gear accessory for 2B that resemble's the face of Valve.
