Layers of Fear developer Bloober Team has revealed that its next title, cyberpunk horror Observer, will launch on the PlayStation 4 on 15th August. The game, set in 2084, will see you assume the role of a neural detective, and will find you entering the thoughts of suspects in order to solve crimes. In other words, you’re quite literally a member of the thought police.
There’s a great bit in the press release which sets out the developer’s stall here: “Developed by Bloober Team, the creators of Layers of Fear, Observer is a horror experience meant for mature audiences. What you see will disturb you.” Bold, Bloober Team – very bold. If we don’t cry ourselves to sleep after playing this, then we’re coming for you.
