The next-gen remaster of Observer, newly titled Observer: System Redux was recently teased by developers Bloober Team. Now, the first trailer for Observer: System Redux has been released. According to the trailer, the remaster is due for ‘Holiday 2020’. The original Observer was released in August 2017 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
Set in the year 2084, in a rather bleak and dystopian Kraków, Poland, the story follows late Blade Runner actor Rutger Hauer, who sadly passed away last year. He stars in the role of Daniel Lazarski, a detective investigating a mystery in an apartment block.
Bloober reveals that Observer: System Redux will feature polished visuals, as well as gameplay enhancements and new story elements, as teased by the first trailer. Bloober also says that Observer: System Redux will be heading for next-gen consoles, so it would make sense then that the remaster would be available on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.
For a visual taster of what Observer: System Redux will offer, hit play below, and enjoy.
A Gamespot review of the original Observer reads, “every scene adds a meaningful piece of the puzzle to a world and a story that you want to immediately know more about.” Observer was hailed as “a haunting and remarkable achievement.”
With all of this talk of next-gen consoles, Sony recently unveiled PS5’s new ‘DualSense’ controller. Senior Vice President of Platform Planning & Management, Hideaki Nishino, revealed the controller during the international announcement on PlayStation’s official blogs.
Notable changes from its PS4 predecessor include, obviously, its name, as well as a new share button, now termed ‘Create.’ Other features include haptic feedback capabilities, adaptive triggers that will assist with immersion, as well as a built-in speaker and a new microphone, which will enable players to communicate as they play. The PS5 controller also includes USB-C standard for power and physical link capabilities.
