A new trailer of Observer: System Redux shows the real power of PS5 and Xbox Series X.
Thanks to many showcases, we know how games will be on the next-gen consoles, but only to a certain extent.

It unveils how the remake of the 2017 game can put all the graphics power of Sony and Microsoft’s consoles in the spotlight. Here is what you need to know.
PS5 and Xbox Series X Show Their Killer Skills in Action
Observer: System Redux is an intriguing horror game that allows us to explore an exciting and dark cyberpunk future. But with boosted volumetric lighting, 4K texture, HDR, and ray-tracing applied to the game in what seems to be a somehow comprehensive remake, it looks unbelievable. It truly feels like a next-gen game.
Bloober Team, the developer of the game, plans to bring “truly immersive environments” thanks to the next-gen tech. Things like neon light being bounced back to the player’s eyes from sticky pools of blood and puddles of rain reflecting flickering lights in real-time, make the game to reach a deeper level of realism.
Rendering techniques and effects such as global illumination and ray-tracing are totally on point in the video, showing the graphics power of the PS5 and Xbox Series X (10.28 teraflops and 12 teraflops respectively). You can watch the trailer below.
Observer: System Redux is expected to run at 30fps on the next-gen consoles. Such a thing might not be right for racing or action games, but it should be just fine for a slow-paced horror experience.
Regardless of how the PS5 and Xbox Series X’s power is brought to bear, it seems that the next-gen consoles will be capable of some of the most incredible graphics. Now, their arrival is even more expected.
