NieR: Automata Shipments and Digital Sales Cross Four Million

Nier: Automata

NieR: Automata has shipped and digitally sold over 4 million copies, according to its official Twitter account.

The game launched back in March 2017 and was announced to have crossed the 3.5 million mark in total shipments and digital sales in December 2018. The strong sales of this sequel contrasts with those of its predecessor, NieR, back in 2010. While exact and verifiable numbers are difficult to find, sales of the first game are estimated to be under one million copies worldwide on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 combined.

After the cancellation of Scalebound, Platinum Games’s exclusive title for Microsoft’s Xbox One and Windows PC, the stellar sales of NieR: Automata were credited to outright saving the studio. Ironically, this previously console exclusive PlayStation 4 title eventually arrived digitally to Xbox One as NieR: Automata Game of the YoRHa Edition earlier this year. This edition includes the 3C3C1D119440927 Expansion DLC, four new pod designs (Grimoire Weiss Pod, Retro Grey Pod Skin, Retro Red Pod Skin, and Cardboard Pod Skin), and the Machine Mask Accessory.

Kalypso Media has announced new downloadable content for its rail management simulator title Railway Empire.

In the new ‘France’ DLC, players can build their railway in the wake of the exile of Emperor Napoleon III. The Third Republic has taken power following the collapse of the French monarchy, so players have the power to decide the industrial future of France.

Players can decide to help rebuild the country’s infrastructure (alongside the new “Eiffel Tower”), or to increase the strength of the country’s borders to prepare for military conflict.

The DLC is set between 1874–1890 and adds 10 train engines, over 12 tradeable goods, and 31 new cities, as well as new songs and characters. The map can be played in the Free Game and Sandbox modes.

Railway Empire: ‘France’ is now available for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One for US$12.99. The game has also received a new update (Update 1.9).

Check out the trailer for the new DLC below.

OnlySP’s Rhain Radford-Burns discussed the importance of Railway Empire in the wider genre of historical games, noting that “the developer grants an insight into the importance of such seemingly menial tasks.”
