Bloober Team is excited to announce the physical and digital version of Observer: System Redux is out today for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles. In addition, today also marks the retail release for Observer: System Redux on PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series X|S. Observer: System Redux is now available in both digital and physical formats on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S for $29.99 (MSRP).

PlayStation 4 and Xbox One Observer: System Redux owners can upgrade to the next-gen version for free any time after purchase.

About Observer: System Redux:

Observer: System Redux is the definitive vision of the award-winning cyberpunk thriller Observer, rebuilt and augmented for the next generation. You play as Daniel Lazarski – an elite investigator of the future, portrayed by late cyberpunk icon Rutger Hauer.

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.

Observer: System Redux PlayStation 4 and Xbox One Features:

Veteran Observers can dive deeper into this dystopian reality thanks to three brand-new side cases to solve. “Errant Signal,” “Her Fearful Symmetry” and “It Runs in the Family” add another layer of depth to the game’s story while exploring thought-provoking themes of a future that soon might become our present.

On top of that, Observer: System Redux on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One offers expanded gameplay, which includes new game mechanics, new secrets to find, redesigned stealth, additional neural interrogations, and quality-of-life improvements made with the help of the Observer community. Experience one of the most thrilling cyberpunk stories in gaming in all its dark glory.

Play the Odds in EA and Zoink’s Lost in Random, Available Worldwide on September 10

Get ready to play the odds in Lost in RandomTM, a gothic fairytale-inspired action adventure from the award-winning Swedish game studio, Zoink. Electronic Arts Inc. today revealed during EA Play Live 2021 that on September 10, 2021, players can experience the Kingdom of Random worldwide, in which they will need to quickly learn how to tip the odds in their favor in a dark wonderland where only the brave survive. Check out Lost in Random’s unique blend of explosive dice battles, time-freezing tactics and various abilities and spells in the official gameplay trailer, which can be watched here.

“When we first started this project, we knew we wanted to create a fairytale that was a bit darker than what we’ve made in the past; we ended up drawing these different characters and concepts, but it wasn’t until this painting of a girl and her dice appeared that we knew there was something more to explore,” said Olov Redmalm, Creative Director and Lead Writer for Lost in Random, during the EA Originals Spotlight at EA Play Live 2021. “A tricky aspect we had to deal with was determining what the gameplay would be like – we wanted the theme and gameplay to revolve around the dice, but had to consider what was too random and what was just random enough. We feel it’s all grown very naturally out of that central idea.”

Ruled by a wicked Queen, the Kingdom of Random is divided into six shadowy realms where life is dictated by a cursed black dice. Journeying as Even, players will walk the land’s mysterious cobbled streets, meet its unpredictable residents and take on courageous quests in order to save her sister, Odd, from Her Majesty’s clutches. Along the way, they’ll team up with Dicey, a small and strange living dice, and together uncover an age-old tale with a surprisingly modern message not typically explored in gaming: Randomness in the world isn’t something to be feared or controlled, but a power that can be harnessed by embracing it and learning to roll with its punches.

Random rules all in the Kingdom of Random, and this principle is deeply embedded in Lost in Random’s innovative gameplay. Coins are collected that enable Even to learn new attacks, abilities and more – all of which come in handy during unique tactical combat. Players will use Even’s slingshot to attack deadly foes and knock off energy cubes that power Dicey. Once charged, they can roll Dicey to freeze time itself and unleash his powerful magic. Players will need to adapt their battle strategy on the fly within evolving board game arenas in order to defy a cursed fate and truly harness the power of randomness.

Starting today, Lost in Randomis available for pre-order on select platforms, and will be available September 10, 2021 for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S and PC on Origin and Steam. For more information and to stay up to date on Lost in Random, visit the official website, like EA Originals on Facebook and Instagram, or follow Zoink on Twitter and like on Instagram.

Hindsight 20/20: Wrath of the Raakshasa Launches 9 Sept. on PC and Consoles

Hindsight 20/20 – Wrath of the Raakshasa, the action-RPG with morality-based decisions from the BioWare, ArenaNet, and Sucker Punch veterans at Triple-I Games, takes players on an epic journey full of difficult decisions on PlayStation®5, PlayStation®4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and Windows via Steam on Thursday, 9 September.

Young one-armed warrior Jehan stands between two wildly different worlds. Growing up in the kingdom of Champaner, he learned to abhor violence. He chose pacifism whenever possible, at worst using a stun baton in self-defense. That was before his father’s murder, before the virus started turning Champaner’s citizens into bloodthirsty Raakshasas. Now Jehan finds himself at the crossroads of fate itself, and his decisions will shape the future of the entire world.

Mold the future, one choice at a time. Uphold Champaner’s values with a stun rod in Merciful combat, or embrace the sweet finality of sharpened steel in Ruthless battle. Wield special abilities from throwing the sword like a boomerang to stunning entire crowds of enemies. Confront bosses reacting to Merciful and Ruthless combat differently, effectively creating two different encounters.

Jehan’s actions — combat, dialogue, even who he chooses to help and when — alter how passerbys perceive him throughout his journey. What may seem like the “right” path early on can have unexpected implications further down the road, leading to 10 different endings. Explore a gorgeous watercolor world blending magic and technology in a highly divergent story encouraging multiple playthroughs to see all of the different possibilities.

On PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S, Hindsight 20/20 runs at 4K/60FPS with improved post-processing effects like light bloom and ambient occlusion. The PlayStation 5 version provides a more immersive experience via the DualShock’s haptic feedback and adaptive triggers.

Hindsight was developed around our custom-built Experience Engine that grants players deeper choices and consequences,” said Hemanshu Chhabra, creative director at Triple-I Games. “We don’t want our dilemmas to be black and white, and we hope our game makes you carefully consider your actions when it releases in September.”

Hindsight 20/20 will be available in English on PlayStation®5, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation®4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and Windows via Steam on Thursday, 9 September.

To learn more, please visit Hindsight 20/20’s official site, Steam page, Twitter, Instagram, Discord channel, and Facebook page.
