Nier Automata Game Introduction

Backdrop to Nier Series

Nier Series concept is about Androids created by humans with stories spanning from 2000s to the far distant future of Earth on 11000s. The first game in-game timeline talks about a massive white statue (Giant) and red winged entity (Dragon) appears from the sky in Shinjuku, Tokyo in imagined 2003 June 12th. After the battle and disintegration of Giant (White Statue), the particles that resemble sodium chloride causes a human pandemic. The first Nier game story span 1300 years later in Year 3465. At this time, Human population has decline and become sort of protected lifeforms by the Androids.

In the in-game timeline 4198, humans became extinct. In-game timeline 5012, aliens arrive on Earth and created their own machines that started wars with Androids. So the war went on for 2000 years and ended somewhere between 7645 with Machines controlling 80% and Androids Controlling 20% of Earth Surface. The two races then continue to live on Earth and the Aliens there on Earth then was exterminated by the Machines in 11306.

Nier Automata is the 2nd Nier game and the timeline is 11945 where the battle between Machines and Androids continue.

The Link Between Nier Series and Drakengard Series

GameHertz Editor Note: This game is directly linked to Drakengard Series of the PS2 to PS3 Era. Drakengard is a parallel world to Nier. The final game of Drakengard Trilogy took place during 865 to 1124 in the Medieval Era of Drakengard World. The Final Battle of Drakengard between the 2 Giant Entities created immense energy and created a parallel portal where the Giant and Dragon was pulled into 2003 Shinjuku Tokyo of the Nier World.

This is the start of the Nier Series and the Scene that show the sudden appearance of the 2 Giant Entities which was the reason behind the pandemic after the 2 Entities are destroyed and their ashes fall in Nier World.

GameHertz Editor Note: The ending of Drakengard only serves as a backdrop to Nier and the stories between these 2 series are not linked.
