Next-Gen OBSERVER: SYSTEM REDUX Will Be 20% Longer Than the Original, Bloober Team Reveals
The recently revealed horror Medium is not the only next-gen production currently in the works at Bloober Team, as the Polish video game developer will bring 2017's Observer to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X at some point this year. Bloober's "definitive vision of this thriller tale" was officially announced last month.
In a recent interview with GamingBolt, Project Manager at Bloober Team Szymon Erdmański revealed plenty of new details on Observer: System Redux. According to the manager, both newcomers and fans of the original should keep an eye on the fast-approaching remake, as the studio is adding tons of new content.
The upcoming next-gen version of Observer will reportedly be much longer than its critically acclaimed predecessor. "The new story content is interwoven with the rest of the game, so it’s hard to put an exact number, but an average playthrough should be 20% longer," Erdmański explained. "Remembering, of course, that everything depends on the individual gaming style of the player."
In the manager's opinion, the never-before-seen story beats will allow players to "better understand the harsh reality and unsettling minds" of the game's cast of three-dimensional characters, including the protagonist, played by the late Rutger Hauer (Blade Runner, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets).
"The new story content allows the player to participate in a couple of additional investigations," the project manager continued. "We are excited to deliver a new immersive experience to the gamers."
As a reminder, Bloober is working not only on Observer: System Redux and The Medium, but also the long-awaited Nintendo Switch port of Blair Witch and a mysterious project produced by a global publisher.
One of the scariest cyberpunk stories has been rebuilt and augmented for the next generation. Veteran Observers can dive deeper into this dystopian reality thanks to expanded gameplay and brand-new story content, while newcomers will get the chance to experience this cyberpunk thriller in all its chilling next-gen glory.
Observer: System Redux is coming to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X in 2020.
