What is NieR: Automata?
Set in a post-apocalyptic Earth, the story of NieR: Automata follows the journey of 2B and 9S during the 14th Machine War. They, along with other android units of YoRHa, face opponents of extraterrestrial origin as they are thrown into various moral dilemmas that make them rethink their purpose in the world.
Eventually, they meet A2, a rogue android who turns out to be a prototype model for the creation of advanced androids such as 2B and 9S. She does not trust the YoRHa Command and avoids spilling information to the two unless necessary.
The game has 27 different endings, all dependent on the choices of the player. The five main endings offer the players with different perspectives of the characters and provide more information about the game’s lore. The other endings are acquired when certain tasks within the game are failed or choices made are not in line with the main endings. Check out the 10 best Nier: Automata endings.

A2 has long white hair and her fringe almost covers the left part of her face. All three androids have blue eyes and share almost the exact same facial features.
