The Observer Future Horror Experience was originally released in 2017 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. In November 2020, the game received a System Redux upgrade for Xbox Series X | S, PS5 and PC. This upgrade purchased next-generation optimization features for the game along with several other improvements. Xbox One and PS4 players can now return world of Observer with that version of System Redux in the future, all available digitally and physically.
Observer: System Redux is set in an outdated version of cyberpunk in 2084, after a digital plague infects and kills people and a war ravages every corner of the world. As if war and plague weren’t enough, corporate empires took advantage of these power vacuums for their own gain.
These lead to the beginning of the game. Players take control of Daniel Lazarski, voiced by the late, iconic Rutger Hauer. Lazaski is an investigator, an observer, who penetrates the minds of suspects, penetrating their psyche in search of clues and evidence. Their feelings, fears, dreams, and memories will all help you with your case. But beware, reliving a suspect’s darkest moments isn’t for the faint of heart. The further you go, the greater the risk of losing your own sanity.
If you’re hesitant to try Observer on its first release, System Redux might do enough to change your mind. Rerelease offers new mechanics and secrets, redesigned stealth, quality of life improvements, and additional content. The Redux system also includes three new sub-cases to deal with, named “False Signals”, “Her Scary Symmetry” and “It Runs in the Family”.
Observer: System Redux also includes additional enhancements like ray tracing and 4K support when it launches on Series X | S, PS5 and PC shiny. Sadly, though, these technical improvements won’t be available to Xbox One and PS4 buyers.

- ENTER THE STORE IN 2084 – Enter a world ravaged by war and online plague, where life is cheap and hope is scarce. Where most people would do anything to escape their grim existence. Virtual reality, mind-altering drugs, nerve implants – choose your poison and drift into blissful oblivion. But remember, no matter how deep you go, you can never hide from an Observer.
We were appalled in every best way by System Redux. We love it “Enthusiastic and non-stop story”, high-quality visuals and sound design, extreme immersion and horror, and the game’s commitment to improving on the original release as we play on Xbox Series X | S. However, now the opportunity is also available to Xbox One and PS4 players.
If you’re a fan of the Observer, be sure to check out the Bloober team’s other games including Blair Witch and Vehicles, which have recently become playable through the Cloud, thanks to Xbox Game Pass.
The year is 2084. In a dark cyberpunk world shattered by plague and war, become a neurotic police detective and infiltrate the jagged minds of others. Take advantage of whatever they feel, think or remember to solve the case and catch the elusive killer.
