Following the teaser from a few days ago, Bloober Team officially announced a remaster for its cyberpunk thriller game Observed, titled Observer: System Redux.
The game is officially coming to next-gen consoles including “expanded gameplay and brand-new story content.” More details have been promised for “the coming weeks and months.”
Of course, we can also expect improved graphics when the game launches in Q4 2020.
You can take a look at the announcement trailer below. Incidentally, the press release calls it “next-gen footage” even if it does not specify what console it runs on.
If you’re unfamiliar with Observer, it was launched in 2017 for PC, Xbox One, and PS4, and it received a Nintendo Switch port last year.
Incidentaly, it featured Rutger Hauer in one of his last voice acting roles. Blooober Team considers the game a tribute to the late actor.

Below you can read a quick blurb on the story straight from the press release:
“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.”
