"NieR: Automata" is already aiming for a Friday, March 17, 2017 release on the PC platform. The big announcement from Square Enix came after the date was published and removed on the trailer of the "Arsenal of Elegant Destruction". In the meantime, the Steam site already revealed the minimum as well as the recommended specs for the Windows version of the game which is also posted on their Support website.

"NieR: Automata" Will Not Run On 32 Bit OS

Take note that only gamers with the latest Microsoft OS running on 64-bit may play "NieR: Automata" on PC. Hence, only Windows 7, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 all 64-bit versions only will be catered to play the game. As for the CPU requirements, an Intel Core i3 2100 may do coupled with an AMD A 8-6500, Gamepros reported.

Furthermore, at least 4GB of free space is necessary to play "NieR: Automata" along with 50 GB or more of free hard disk space or SSD. A NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770 VRAM 2GB GPU is the minimum requirement for the game or an AMD Radeon R9 270X VRAM 2GB. The game also requires at least a broadband internet connection, a DirectX 11 support sound card and 1280x720 screen resolution.

Next Patch Will Change Name Of Trash Item

Meanwhile, "NieR: Automata" gamers in Japan have been complaining about the name of a trash item found when fishing in-game, IGN reported. The item, called "NIN64" is described as a trash that was fished up. Apparently, fans have requested to alter the name of the item.

"NieR: Automata" Producer Yosuke Saito then went to Twitter to address the backlash and reassured the upset fans that a patch would be released to change the name of the item pointed out. Furthermore, the patch is also said to fix a few bugs in-game. Take note that a Western release happened only recently with the game coming to the Sony PS4 in North America and Europe.
