‘Observer: System Redux’ will be a launch title for next-gen consoles

New missions, gameplay changes and graphical improvements are part of the upgrade

The cult-classic sci-fi horror game Observer is coming to both the PS5 and Xbox Series consoles on their launch days.

Known as Observer: System Redux, the new upgraded version will launch on November 10 for PC, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S. The PS5 version will release on November 12.

The next-gen upgrade of Observer: System Redux will come with additional content in the form of three new missions. The three cases – known as Errant Signal, Her Fearful Symmetry, and It Runs in the Family – will add more layers onto the game’s previously established thought-provoking themes, as well as adding new characters and locations.

New game mechanics, such as redesigned stealth, have also been added, on top of numerous quality-of-life improvements that aim to build upon the original game. 4K resolution, upgraded textures, new animations, ray-tracing, and HDR lighting have all been incorporated to take advantage of the next-gen hardware.

In a press release, CEO of developer Bloober Team, Piotr Babineo, spoke about the game’s pricing, and how it will retain the same cost as current-gen counterparts at £23.99 (US $29.99).

“Making Observer: System Redux available for next-gen console players has been a huge focus for the team,” Babineo said. “We know next-gen pricing is a major concern for our fans and we feel that releasing all the new content and upgrades in Observer: System Redux at the same cost as the original Observer is a great way to stay close with our community.”
