Confirmed: NieR Automata Is Coming to PC on March 17th

The wait if finally over! We finally have a confirmation that NieR: Automata is finally getting a confirmed release date. After the long wait and worrying about the status of the title, we’ll finally see it on PC as of March 17th, 2017.

Our prayers have been answered. Originally the PC version was announced to be released on March 10th, 2017, but then was mysteriously pulled from original trailer.

The Steam page isn’t up as of yet, but expect that to go up soon. That said, if you’re on the fence about picking the game, check out our review of the PS4 game here

The system requirements were released as well, which you can see below.  No mention on if the game will support 4K and higher graphical options. Guess we’ll find out once the game is released.

Expect to see a PC vs PS4 comparison once the game is released and is in my hands. I wonder how this game is going to run on PCs with beastly hardware.
