Square Enix has confirmed that NieR: Automata will launch for Valve’s Steam service on March 17, ten days after the game’s release on PlayStation 4 in North America.

While the PC will not inherit the PlayStation 4 exclusive demo of NieR: Automata, the two will have the same Day One edition that includes bonus digital content.

The versions are nearly identical across both platforms, though keen-eyed Valve fans will be able to spot the Easter Egg in the Steam version above. Sadly, neither version will come with Yoko Taro’s favorite T-shirt. 

NieR: Automata launches on PlayStation 4 today, March 7, and for Steam March 17.
