Square Enix dropped a worldwide release for NieR: Automata‘s demo, and you can download the demo today. In “DEMO 120161128,” players will explore an abandoned factory as the android 2B and take down a massive enemy weapon inside.

The demo will give you a taste of the slick action gameplay, produced by Bayonetta and Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance developer Platinum Games. You will even get to face an enormous boss- although, enormous seems to be an understatement here.


You can try NieR: Automata‘s Easy, Medium, Hard, and Very Hard difficulties. If you’re feeling a little confident and are up for a challenge, the demo’s Very Hard difficulty is just for you. Enemies will likely kill you in a single hit, so you’ll need to play smart and show off some hack-and-slash skills.

Square Enix also published a video detailing the demo’s controls and features. Familiarize yourself with the Speed Attack, Heavy Attack, long-ranged Pod attacks, and evasion controls if you want to master this game’s combat. The video also shows off some of the battles and sequences you’ll get to see if you play the demo.

NieR: Automata‘s demo is a 4.4 GB download. You can grab it on the PlayStation Store for free right now. Unfortunately, while the game will be available on PC at a later date, there’s currently no plans to bring the demo to PC.

NieR: Automata‘s PS4 release will launch in Japan on February 22, 2017. North America will see the game on March 7, 2017; while Europeans will have to wait until March 10, 2017. The PC version will be available at a later unknown date in 2017.
