For those of you that might not know, NieR: Automata is Platinum Games' upcoming action RPG set in a vast, open-world environment. It will be arriving on March 7th in North America and March 10th in Europe and Australia, though its still unknown whether the PC and PS4 versions will be launching simultaneously.

Now that we're on the same page, you'll find the most recent gameplay video right below. It features around 30 minutes of open world gameplay, tons of roaming around, and naturally, plenty of combat as well. There are absolutely no spoilers as far as I can figure out, so feel free to give the video a look even if you want to have a completely fresh experience. Anyway, here's the video:

If you're as confused as I am about the whole story, you might find a bit of enlightenment in the recent "Glory to Mankind" trailer. Chances are you'll leave with more questions than answers unless you've played the original NieR, but it should at the very least give you an idea of the sot of mood NieR: Automata is going for. Enjoy!
