nier automata easy mode

NieR: Automata is shaping up to be another hectic action title from Platinum Games, but even if you're not too confident in your own hacking and slashing skills, publisher Square Enix wants you to know that you won't be left out of the fun. New information that's come out of this year's Tokyo Game Show suggests that the game will feature an 'Auto Mode', which essentially has the artificial intelligence fight enemies for you.

According to Siliconera, the Auto Mode will perform both offensive and defensive techniques so that players of all skill levels can enjoy the game. However, the AI may struggle against tougher foes, so you'll still have to get stuck into the title's RPG elements, such as upgrading weapons, to get the most out of it.

What's more, you'll be able to switch between normal and Auto at any time, and you can even configure the mode's fighting style to suit your needs. It's worth pointing out, though, that Auto Mode is only available on the easy difficulty setting, which you can also switch to at any point.
