Tasking you with destroying a massive enemy weapon in an abandoned factory, the free NieR: Automata demo is now available on PlayStation 4 through the PlayStation Store (North America, Europe), weighing in at 4.4GB. You can see gameplay from the demo in the above video.

Featuring Easy to Very Hard difficulty settings, as well as English and Japanese voiceover and text, here’s the description for the demo:

Download the NieR: Automata Demo 120161128 to join androids 2B and 9S and their ferocious battle to reclaim a machine-driven dystopia overrun by powerful machine lifeforms. Experience a glimpse of the action-packed and high-speed battles rendered in fluid 60fps, against hordes of enemies within a beautifully desolate open-world. NieR: Automata is a fresh take on the action role-playing game (RPG) genre that gracefully blends mesmerising action with a captivating story.

Square Enix also brought out a new NieR: Automata trailer today, showcasing the collaborations where 2B can unlock and equip Noctis’s Engine Blade from Final Fantasy XV and the Cypress Stick from the Dragon Quest series:

NieR: Automata releases on March 7, 2017 in North America and March 10, 2017 in Europe. The pre-order for the Day One Edition went up on the PlayStation Store today.

If you want more free stuff, the Final Fantasy XV Holiday Pack went live today (NA, EU), adding this extra content:

  • Warrior’s Fanfare – A scroll of sheet music containing a song of jubilation that provides additional AP for earning an A+ in Offense outside of training.
  • Nixperience Band – A device that stops experience points from being tallied, preventing the party from leveling up for an added challenge.
  • Carnival Passport – An adorably adorned ticket that whisks the bearer away to a fun-filled carnival for a limited time.
  • Choco-Mog Tee (available late January) – An exclusive T-shirt featuring everyone’s favorite fluffy and feathery friends. Colorful, comfy and appropriate for any carnival-goer.
