To understand what is going one, it is probably better to say that in the Nier family you have Nier Gestalt, released on Xbox 360, Nier Replicant on Playstation 3 (both of those games are mostly similar but have some little differences) and more recently Nier Automata.
And for people that have no idea of what is Nier … well it is a third-person action-RPG, sets in an apocalyptic future (a bit in ruins), with a lot of monsters to kill. Like really big and very hard to kill monsters, but the universe and story are usually really worth it. Nier Replicant also has a lot of jump in time, so the story is in a very long period of time. Explaining more than that would either spoil the story or require a 10 minutes explanation.
So now it is probably more clear that Square Enix has decided to remake Nier Replicant for Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC. It is supposed to happen this year but I have not seen a date yet.
But for those interested to play what happened before Nier Automata, that is cool. As a reminder NieR:Automata will also be available April 2nd, 2020 on consoles with Xbox Game Pass memberships.
Square Enix just announced that a free demo of Life Is Strange 2 is currently available on Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC (Steam).
Not a bad thing if you do not know what to do and would like to have a try to decide if you want to play the full game or not!
As a reminder, Life is Strange 2 tells the story of two brothers, 16-year old Sean and 9-year old Daniel Diaz, who have to flee their home in suburban Seattle after a tragic event that changes their lives forever. Further complicating matters is the manifestation of an exciting new telekinetic power that has far-reaching implications for Sean and Daniel and puts pressure on the relationship between them.
The first episode of the Council is now free to play for all players on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC! And that is good news when you have to stay at home!
The game is developed by Cyanide Studio and published by Focus Home Interactive, which gave us some very nice games last year, such as Vampyr, A plague tale: Innocence or Greedfall.
In The Council Episode 1: The Mad Ones, you set off on your journey with Louis de Richet on Lord Mortimer’s private island, in an attempt to discover the fate of your missing mother before it’s too late. You will be joined by several high-profile guests, including Napoleon Bonaparte and President of the United States of America, George Washington. Because .. well, why not.
