In 2017, Bloober Team released the sci-fi dystopian thriller Observer and it is one of the most highly rated titles of this generation. A little while back Bloober Team began teasing an Observer announcement with some thoughts going towards a sequel. However, it is not a sequel that is coming but an upgraded version of the game. Observer: System Redux will be the next generation version of the game, and it will be released on PS5 and Xbox Series X during Holiday 2020 aka the still expected launch window of the new consoles. A new trailer showing the game in 4K has been released and you can view it below.
Observer follows Dan Lazarski, an Observer, who has been voiced by the late Rutger Hauer. In the game, Dan Lazarski is an investigator who can view the memories and thoughts of suspects. The setting is the year 2084 and it follows an incredibly dark period for humanity where thousands were killed by a virus brought on by human augmentation. As Observers have some augmentations they are not popular among the rest of the population. The System Redux version of the game will have new story content and expanded gameplay, with details of those coming soon.
In our review for Observer Tuffcub wrote:
If you don’t like ‘walking sims’ then Observer isn’t going to change your mind, even if it does include some rudimentary detective work. However, if you like to be swept away by a story and pulled in to a world where every door has a new experience behind it, then close the curtains, turn off the lights, crank up the surround sound and immerse yourself in this great cyberpunk horror tale.
