Square Enix has announced that post-apocalyptic RPG Nier: Automata will be launching on PC through Steam as well as the originally planned PlayStation 4 launch.

Nier: Automata is the follow up to 2010 title Nier, and tells the story of androids 2B, 9S, and A2 as they fight to reclaim a world currently over-run by machines. Some recorded gameplay of the title surfaced back in April during a Square Enix event, and we even got some hands-on time the game and developer Platinum Games during E3 2016. 

Although there's no specific release date for Nier: Automata, Square Enix says PlayStation 4 and now PC users can expect its arrival sometime in early 2017.
