Remember the rather brilliant >observer_? Well, Bloober Team are taking the scares that delivered and taking them to the next level, detailing Observer: System Redux with a stunning announcement trailer which shows off the power of the next-gen consoles.
Coming Holiday 2020, Observer: System Redux takes one of the scariest ever cyberpunk games and remasters it for next-gen. System Redux will allow veteran Observers to deep dive back into the dystopian reality thanks to expanded gameplay and brand-new story content. Newcomers to the game on the other hand will get the chance to experience this cyberpunk thriller in all its chilling next-gen glory.
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.
The unique blend of cyberpunk and horror of System Redux features Rutger Hauer in one of his last voice-acting roles and Bloober Team views the title as a tribute to the late film star. It also stars Polish musician and actor Arkadiusz Jakubik as Janus Jukowski, a veteran struggling with early model cybernetics.
Looks good eh! Keep an eye out for more details on the enhancements in weeks and months ahead. We’ll be sure to bring you all the glorious detail. For now though, take in that trailer below and let us know what you think of the stunning visuals within.
