One thing that we are clearly not leaving behind this generation is cheap cash-grab remastered games. Bloober Team has announced a “remaster” of its cyberpunk thriller game “Observer” called “Observer: System Redux ” for next-gen hardware and no one needs it or asked for it. The original game is just over two years old yet the studio plans on re-releasing the game on next-gen consoles like the PS5 and Xbox Series X for the full price tag.
The studio claims that Observer: System Redux will feature some new story elements, enhanced gameplay and “next-gen” graphics but in all honesty, the game looks the same as it did on current-gen hardware. It just all feels like a way to make a quick buck out of gamers by slapping “next-gen” on a video and offering “visual enhancements” which should have been ported across to the new consoles and updated in with a patch.
While Bloober Team has not confirmed whether or not this is a specific new version of the game, the wording in the YouTube trailer’s description gives us the assumption that it is indeed a re-release of the 2017 game;
Get a first look at some of the new features in Observer: System Redux! 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. Considered one of the scariest games currently available, and one the best cyberpunk games coming to next-generation consoles, System Redux is the definitive vision of this thriller tale, coming for the 2020 holiday season.
Hopefully, with backwards compatibility available on both the PS5 and Xbox Series X, more developer patch upgrades into their games and don’t try pull of what Bloober Team are doing.
