Rutger Hauer was an iconic actor who had appeared in one of the most important sci-fi features in cinema, Blade Runner. Now, with the release for Observer System Redux just around the corner for next-gen consoles and PC, the developers, Bloober Team have just released some interview footage they had with the late actor during the development of the game.

“Rutger was a good friend and will be missed, It was hard hearing him and knowing that he is not with us, but in a way, being able to share his voice again felt special. This interview really shows the depth of passion he had in his role as Dan — he was a wonderful person, and we’re deeply sorry that he passed.”

Piotr Babineo, Bloober Team CEO

Observer Redux will add support for new visual features, such as 4K resolution, upgraded textures, new animations, models, and effects, all transformed with ray-tracing and HDR lighting.

On top of the visual enhancements, the redux edition will also get three new major missions: Errant Signal, Her Fearful Symmetry, and It Runs in the Family, as well as updated character models, and new locations. 

“While developing System Redux, many of us on the team would talk about what it was like to work with him. As a team, we’re in love with Rutger’s work and this game is as great a tribute to him as we could make. There’s a hidden in-game Easter egg nodding to his iconic role as Roy in Blade Runner.”

PIOTR BABINEO, BLOOBER TEAM CEO

The kind thing Bloober is doing, however, is that rather than charging you a next-gen price for the game, they have decided to keep it at what the original game launched as, making it available for everyone at only $29.99/£24.99.

Observer Redux will be available on the PC where it is 10% off to pre-order, as well as Xbox Series X on the 10th of November, with the Playstation 5 getting it on the 12th, coinciding with its launch. It is developed by Bloober Teamwho is also working on The Medium.
