The biggest difference between the 2017 version and the new version is remastered graphics. To support the next-gen consoles, which feature 8K support, Bloober decided to optimize their game’s graphics.

Here, players can see the difference between the original version and System Redux. The graphics look much more realistic and smooth. Bloober also released a video detailing the changes that Redux brings to the game and how the role of consoles is very essential.

In the video, Game Developer Tomasz Bentkowski can be heard saying, “We have been able to create more immersive worlds with the new generation consoles.

The game appears to focus on how the new consoles would change the future of games. Tomasz credited the next-generation 4K technology for helping the game depict an even more dystopian and cyberpunk world. All this wouldn’t be possible without making effects like rain, fog, smoke, etc., look much more realistic.
