Nier Automata Plot

The game features a post-apocalyptic version of Earth thousands of years after the events of the first Nier. The story of the sequel follows the fourth ending of the original game since it has multiple endings.

It revolves around the war between what remains of the human race and an army of machines from another world. These machines aim to invade Earth and to dispose humanity along with it.

The initial invasion forced humans out of the planet and into a space station in the Moon. From there, they have invented androids known as YoRHa that would fend off the invaders in Earth.

These YoRHa have no name and emotions, and what distinguishes them from each other are their particular attitudes. Humans have sent a Bunker to revolve around the orbit of the Earth to command these YoRHa.

Nier Automata: YoRHa No. 2 Model B

According to previous VGR reports, players have to take control of a particular android known as YoRHa No. 2 Model B or 2B. She is a female model whose traits are considered as calm and composed.

2B, along with YoRHA No. 9 Model S or 9s, has to go to Earth and fight off the machines in order to save humanity. The mysterious YoRHa No. 2 Model A or A2 observes the two of them while in the process.
