Observer: System Redux is an upcoming remaster and a more extended version of the 2017’s Observer, which will have different missions, 4k resolution, and next-gen techs like ray-tracing HDR lighting. Bloober Team CEO Piotr Babineo said that the team’s main focus was to make Observer: System Redux available for next-gen console players. With the release of the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5, they were finally able to share their release date news. Furthermore, Piotr Babineo said that fans of the series are worried about what the price will be of the game (this was due to the increase in the price of many other games like Call of Duty Cold War, etc.). He said that all the new content and upgrades in Observer: System Redux will be at the same cost as the original Observer, which he told is a great way to stay close with their community.
Bloober Team is a very well renowned game maker as they have made games like Layers of Fear, Layers of Fear 2, and Blair Witch. They also have a brand new horror game called The Medium, set to release on Xbox Series X in December of this year. Observer: System Redux is an ideal vision of an award-winning cyberpunk thriller, rebuilt and augmented for the next generation. As we have been told early that there are going to be new missions, which are “Errant Signal,” “Her Fearful Symmetry,” and “It Runs in the Family.” These cases will add more layers to the game’s story while exploring thought-provoking themes of a future that soon might become our present. There are also going to expand gameplay, which includes new game mechanics, new secrets that players can find, redesigned stealth, additional neural interrogations, and quality-of-life improvements that were made with the help of the Observer community.
As for the story, the game’s event is set in 2084, where the future is much darker than anyone could imagine. The world was first struck by the Nanophage, a digital plague that killed thousands and thousands of people who chose to augment their minds and bodies. Later came the War, which left the West and the East decimated and shattered. With no one left to control the world, all corporations took over and created their wicked empires. The players take control of a pawn that is an Observer who is a tool of corporate oppression. You are feared and despised; players have the power to hack into the darkest corners of their suspects’ minds. The player cab creeps into their dreams, expose their fears, and extract whatever investigation may require.
Players take control of Daniel Lazarski, who is an elite investigator of the future. Late cyberpunk icon Rutger Hauer portrays him. He has the device that is called Dream Eater, hack into the minds of the dead and dying to relive their final moments and to explore their fears and obsessions. Players will have to take a deep dive into the twisted neural mazes and search for clues that will help you find the elusive killer, but the deeper you go, the greater the risk of losing your sanity. The game was a trendy game that has a considerable fanbase, and with the release of this new version, it is a perfect time for those that have gone on this journey to revisit it one more time.
