It’s no longer exciting enough to just see a game rock up on Xbox One, playable from the off. Nope, now we have the chance to play that game for free via Xbox Game Pass, or even see our entire experience be taken from console to PC thanks to the power of Xbox Play Anywhere. Whatever fancy options are in place though, it has to be said that the launch of Observation is highly intriguing in itself.
Priced at £20.99, available via Xbox Game Pass, and making the most of Xbox Play Anywhere possibilities, Observation has rolled out on Xbox One and PC – Windows 10.
Sold as a sci-fi thriller, Observation will see you focusing your efforts on one Dr. Emma Fisher, the leader of a space crew who have been sent off on a dangerous mission. As with most thrillers though, things fast go wrong and it is here where you pick up the tale, taking on the role of the crew’s ship’s S.A.M. system.
From there you’ll be able to work with Emma and the control system found on board the station, as you utilise cameras, tools, and all manner of goodies – all in order to find out what has happened on board this ship, where the crew have wandered off to, and what makes S.A.M. himself so interesting. Expect a whole ton of puzzles, a host of exploration and some good old cosmic horror to keep you going back for more.
- You’re not on the station, you are the station
- Blends narrative adventure, puzzles, exploration, and cosmic existential horror
- Uncover the true nature of yourself, your crew, and the mysterious always-present hexagon on Saturn…
If Observation seems like something of interest to you, or you just reckon any Xbox Game Pass title is worth a play, head on over to the Xbox Store and grab a download right now. If you don’t have Game Pass opportunities then you’ll find it with a £20.99 price tag attached.
Make sure you keep an eye out for our full review of Observation on Xbox One soon too.
