New Observer Trailer Shows Rutger Hauer in a “Cyberpunk Horror Story” (VIDEO)
Observer is the “cyberpunk horror story” set to arrive next month from Polish developer Bloober Team. The unique part of this game is that it will be starring an actor that is no stranger to the genre: Rutger Hauer. For those unfamiliar, Hauer has appeared in a plethora of projects, including Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Sin City, Hobo with a Shotgun, and as recently as Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. However, he is quite possibly most recognized for his role as renegade replicant Roy Batty in 1982’s Blade Runner. Of course, it is this film that the upcoming title most resembles, as is evident in the most recent video that was released. The Observer trailer and synopsis can be found below:
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.”
As can be seen in the Observer trailer, synopsis, and screenshots above, this game is looking to be one hell of a ride. Of course, if Bloober Team’s Layers of Fear is any indication, this title should have no trouble sucking players into the depths of its story and visuals. Observer is set to release on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on August 15.
