Nier: Automata’s first confirmed DLC has officially been scheduled to release worldwide beside its release in Japan.

Originally slated to be initially released in Japan before being shipped worldwide, Automata’s DLC pack, dubbed ‘3C3C1D119440927,’ will add additional outfits, cosmetic accessories, masks with special effect, skins that change the appearance of enemies’ bullets, and new music. To obtain these rewards, players will have to complete the DLC’s new colosseum battles, amounting to three in total, each with their own challenges. For added fun, two of the fights will be against Square Enix CEO Yosuke Matsuda and Platinum Games CEO Kenichi Sato.

‘3C3C1D119440927’ is scheduled for a May 2, 2017 release, and the outfits available within the DLC are included in the gallery below:

Nier: Automata is the sequel to 2010’s Nier, itself a spin-off of the Drakengard series. Released in Japan in February 2017 and worldwide the following month, Automata is an open-world action roleplaying game set on Earth in a post-apocalyptic environment. The game takes place thousands of years after Nier. Automata is centered on three main characters: YoRHa No. 2 Model B (“2B”), YoRHa No. 9 Model S (“9S”), and YoRHa No. 2 Model A (“A2”). The aforementioned characters work together to fight back against machines in an effort to take Earth back from the machines’ control.

Nier: Automata was developed by Platinum Games and published by Square Enix, and is available for PC and PlayStation 4. During the initial PC launch, Automata was region locked to certain parts of the world. The countries to which the game was region locked include Philippines, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Hong Kong, Taiwan, China, South Korea, and Saudi Arabia. No reason for the region lock has been issued, but NierJPN announced via Twitter that the game would be available in these countries in April 2017. The region lock only occurred on the PC version of the game.

Stalker 2 is Not A Revived Version of the Cancelled 2012 Project

Stalker 2

Stalker 2 has been confirmed as an entirely new project that has no basis on the cancelled 2012 sequel.

Roughly a decade ago, fans were excited when Stalker 2 was announced. Unfortunately, in 2012, Ukrainian developers GSC Games World was shut down and all progress on the sequel was put on hold.

All went quiet until 2014 where the company resurfaced and announced that development on a version of Stalker 2 was underway. Despite a developer build for the original Stalker 2 making its way onto the web, GSC Games World chose to start from scratch and create an entirely new AAA experience for the series.

GSC Games World has so far not stated why the decision was made to start from the beginning, aside from the assurance that the new game is currently in development and will hopefully hit stores in 2021.
