Key members of the original team participated in the development of the improved version. According to the plot, in the distant future, humanity was on the verge of extinction. The world is threatened by nightmarish monsters and a deadly disease. The adventure reveals the truth about the NieR universe – players will realize that nothing can be taken for granted. The combat system provides for fencing and powerful spells – thanks to the power of Words, you can endow the hero with new spells, skills and weapons.
