NieR: Automata came out on PS4 last month, with the PC release scheduled for a later date. That date folks is March 18, with the game popping up on Steam with its very own pre-purchase button. Minimum and recommended specs are also available, along with a special gift for those who pre-order via Valve's online store.

The PC pre-order already comes with a bunch of extras, according to a Steam announcement by Square Enix representative "Daniels":

  • Machine Mask Accessory
  • Grimoire Weiss Pod
  • Cardboard Pod Skin
  • Retro Grey Pod Skin
  • Retro Red Pod Skin

However, if you go the Steam route, you'll also get this.

If you're wondering, yes, it's exactly what it looks like. You can wear it as an eye patch, or a pair of eye-patches.

OK, the important question: Is your PC good enough to Nier? The fairly reasonable system requirements can be found below:

OS Minimum: Windows 7/8.1/10 64 bit Recommended: Windows 8.1/10 64 bit

CPU Minimum: Intel Core i3 2100 or AMD A8-6500 Recommended: Intel Core i5 4670 or AMD A10-7850K

RAM Minimum: 4GB Recommended: 8GB

Graphics Minimum: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770 VRAM 2GB or AMD Radeon R9 270X VRAM 2GB Recommended: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 VRAM or AMD Radeon R9 380X VRAM 4GB

DirectX Minimum: DirectX 11 Recommended: DirectX 11

HDD/SSD Minimum: 50GB Recommended: 50GB

Unfortunately, if you were looking for a discount, the pre-order appears to be full price at $US59.99 ($78.99). If you can live without the bonuses, it might be worthwhile shopping around or waiting for it to go on sale.

    How long has it taken for someone to do a Steam pre-order bonus that was Valve's creepy logo? People have been putting the Heavy into things for ages.
