NieR Automata is a Role-playing video game that takes place during the midst of the proxy war that occurred between humanity and the machines developed by multiple invaders. It proposes an excellent story that follows the combat between different players. Such a game is a brilliant mix of action-based combat and role-playing elements that puts me into the role of a female protagonist named Yorha. I need to jump into an open-world environment and start navigating on foot. I have to utilize multiple unique objects and items and attempt to complete objectives.
