by

Bloober Team has released the very first true next-gen horror game, Observer: System Redux on Xbox Series X and PC. Featuring 4K resolution, upgraded textures, new animations, models, and effects, all transformed with next-gen visual features, Observer: System Redux is now available on Xbox Series X and PC (Steam, Epic Game Store, GOG, Green Man Gaming), and is priced at €29.99 and $29.99 regionally. 

Observer: System Redux releases on PlayStation 5 November 12, 2020 as a day 1 launch title on that platform. 

“Our award-winning cyberpunk thriller, Observer, is back with augmented visuals, next-gen gameplay, and new story, all woven together as Observer: System Redux,” said Bloober Team CEO, Piotr Babieno. “Our cyberpunk psychological horror story takes full advantage of next-gen technology. Working together with the team at Anshar Studios, we’ve incorporated the power of next-gen at every opportunity—faster loading ssd drives virtually eliminate the need for loading screens and other breaks in immersion, and visual improvements let us bring this world to life in detail.” 

“The poem used in our launch trailer was one of Rutger’s favorites and guided his work while in his role as Dan,” continued Babieno. “Including this line from The Time of Your Life was one last way for us to pay tribute to our friend.” 

Featuring Rutger Hauer in one of his last voice-acting roles (Dan Lazarski/Observer), Observer: System Redux adds three new major missions: Errant Signal, Her Fearful Symmetry, and It Runs in the Family to expand on the dystopian world the story explores. 

The cyberpunk thriller is available in English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Japanese, Simplified Chinese, and Korean. 

What is Observer: System Redux?

The year is 2084.

The future has turned out much darker than anyone could imagine. First, there was the Nanophage. A digital plague that killed thousands upon thousands of those who chose to augment their minds and bodies.

Then came the War, leaving both the West and the East decimated and shattered. With no one left to seize power, corporations took over and forged their own crooked empires.

You are a tool of corporate oppression. Feared and despised, you hack into the darkest corners of your suspects’ minds. You creep into their dreams, expose their fears, and extract whatever your investigation may require.

You are an Observer.

Players can dive deeper into this dystopian reality thanks to expanded gameplay and brand-new story content, while newcomers will get the chance to experience this cyberpunk thriller in all its chilling next-gen glory.
