During the weekend, the cyberpunk-theme thriller title Observer System Redux was officially announced for the next generation consoles of PS5 and Xbox Series X. A new trailer is also published that allows a first look at the new edition of the game.
According to the announcement of Bloober Team, we are not dealing with a completely new title here. In fact, Observer System Redux is nothing but an extended new edition to the original Observer title from 2017 coming to the next-gen consoles. It guarantees playful improvements, a comprehensively overhauled technology and an expanded story.
“Bloober Team has rebuilt its award-winning cyberpunk thriller, Observer, with augmented visuals, gameplay, and story as Observer: System Redux for next-generation consoles. Considered one of the scariest games currently available, and one the best cyberpunk games coming to next-generation consoles. System Redux is the definitive vision of this horror tale, coming for the 2020 holiday season
The unique blend of cyberpunk and horror in System Redux features Rutger Hauer in one of his last voice-acting roles (Dan Lazarski/Observer) and the team views the title as a tribute to the late film star. The game also stars Polish musician and actor Arkadiusz Jakubik as Janus Jukowski, a veteran struggling with early model cybernetics.
While System Redux is a remaster of the original Observer, it features some completely new, never-seen-before story,” the studio said.
Observer System Redux has not been given a specific release date. However, there is talk of a PS5 and Xbox Series X release in autumn 2020. Check out the first trailer for the official announcement of the game below.
