The Bloober Team revealed the official trailer of Observer System Redux, which is a revised version of its 2017 cyberpunk horror game, which has been released to the next generation of consoles. It showcases impressive visual effects and the same top-notch aesthetics, while touting new story content.
With this holiday coming, the content of the new story will have “expanded gameplay.” These two aspects are not covered in detail in the trailer, but we did review the story. Players will play the role of Daniel Lazarski in the future scene, the observer invades people’s memory through nerve implants. When Daniel was investigating his son’s apparent death in a closed apartment building, things quickly became weird. Currently available for Xbox One, PS4 and PC. As the System Redux version enters Xbox Series X and PS5, it remains to be seen whether other Bloober Team games (such as “Lars of Fear 2” or Blair Witch) will receive similar treatment.
Observer is a psychological horror video game developed by Bloober Team and published by Aspyr. It was released on Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in August 2017, followed by versions for Linux, macOS, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. The observer follows the detective Daniel Lazarski, known as the observer, who can invade people’s minds as a method of interrogation.
A team of thirty people developed the game using Unreal Engine 4. The game is starred by Rutger Hauer, who is also one of the main characters in “Blade Runner”. Arkadiusz Reikowski composed the score and added chorus, ensemble and ambient music to it. Observers generally received praise from critics. They praised the design, visual effects and hacking of the world, but criticized the invisible area and its focus on style rather than substance. During GDC 2020, an extended version of Observer: System Redux was announced and will be released later in 2020.
