The star from Blade Runner, Rutger Hauer, is set to be the featured actor in the upcoming cyberpunk horror game >observer_! He will be playing Detective Daniel Lazarski in this first person psychological horror that takes place in a dark, dystopian setting in the year 2048.
An Observer is an elite neural detective with the authority to hack and invade suspects’ minds. You can expect that what you see will disturb you and stir the technophobe inside of your psyche! Just check out their trailer:
The year is 2084. If you somehow survived the Nanophage, odds are you were killed in the War. Those who live have turned to drugs, VR, neural implants — anything to distract themselves from this new reality. You are Daniel Lazarski, an elite neural detective known as an Observer, and part of a corporate-funded police unit whose purpose is to hack and invade suspects’ minds. In this future, anything you think, feel, or remember can be used against you in a court of law.
When you receive a mysterious message from your estranged son, a high-level engineer for the almighty Chiron Corporation, you journey to the seedy Class C slums of Krakow to investigate. But as you hack into the unstable minds of criminals and victims to look for clues, you are forced relive their darkest fears. How far will you go to discover the truth?
This game sounds intriguing and looks like a great horror mystery title that I can't wait to dig deep into and learn the secrets behind the city, not to mention the events that will undoubtedly take place!
>observer_ is created by Bloober Team and expects to launch August 15th on PS4, XB1, and PC!
