NieR: Automata is Square Enix’s latest hack-and-slash game and follows the story of three androids, 2B, 9S, and A2, in a world where humanity has been driven away from the Earth by mechanical beings from another world. Humanity’s last hope is a force of android soldiers whose goal is to destroy the invaders. There can only be one winner here. If the androids win the war, then humans can take back the planet. If not, they are doomed forever.
NieR: Automata was officially launched on March 17th, but many fans still can’t get their hands on the game due to region limitations in South East Asian countries. This region lock has disappointed many gamers who don’t understand what pushed Square Enix to make such a decision considering they’re ready to pay. This limitation has actually forced players to use a series of unorthodox methods to get their hands on the game, with many gamers accusing SquareEnix of encouraging people to pirate the game.
I don’t see it in Taiwan’s Steam store either. If you don’t want my money SE, then I’m forced to pirate it to play on my platform of choice.
NieR: Automata could come to SEA countries in May
For the time being, there is no official confirmation as to when NieR: Automata will arrive in SEA countries. Some players suggest that the game could become available in this region in May, although it is unsure how true that is.
SEA isn’t getting this game in April, and people need to understand this. Maybe May if we’re lucky […]
NierJPN has zero idea when the game is coming out. They actually don’t have the information, because SONY knows the KOR/CN PS4 version is due out at the END of April, which is why they want to push PS4 console and game sales.
People have asked time and time again, when in April, and NierJPN doesn’t have that information. So just like how official channels provided the wrong information about the “Worldwide” release knowingly to customers, this is the very same case.
As far as its price is concerned, one gamer from The Philippines suggests that NieE: Automata should be available for $50. The information is available on his Steam Curators page. NieR: Automata will most likely be a timed-exclusive deal by Sony to boost their PS4 sales and will then come to PCs and Xbox One consoles.
Are you going to buy NieR: Automata when it becomes available in SEA countries, or has this region lock completely turned you off to the game?
