The Medium, Gaming’s Highly Anticipated Next-Gen Horror Game Out Now on Xbox Series X|S and PC. Bloober Team Launch Psychological Horror Game Featuring Dual-Realities Gameplay with Double the Suspense.

Check out the launch trailer here.

Quote
KRAKOW, POLAND – Jan. 28, 2021 – Today, Bloober Team, the studio behind acclaimed horror games including Blair Witch, Observer: System Redux and Layers of Fear, are proud to release The Medium, the third-person psychological horror game featuring next-gen game mechanics exploring two worlds at the same time. The game is available today for $49.99/€49.99/£39.99 exclusively on Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Steam, Epic Games Store, GOG, and the Microsoft Store. To celebrate the global launch, Bloober Team is excited to announce that The Medium will be available for a 10% off launch discount on PC and Xbox Series X|S for the first week of release beginning today.

The Medium Deluxe Edition is also available for PC players on Steam for $54.99/€54.99/£43.99, which includes The Medium, The Medium Original Soundtrack (by Akira Yamaoka and Arkadiusz Reikowski) and The Art of The Medium (digital artbook). Players can also purchase these separately on Steam; the Original Soundtrack for $9.99/€8.19/£7.19, and The Art of The Medium for $5.99/€4.99/£4.79.

Watch the new official launch trailer for The Medium featuring the original song “Voices,” performed by Mary Elizabeth McGlynn and composed by Akira Yamaoka & Arkadiusz Reikowski.

“Everyone at Bloober Team is ecstatic to see The Medium release on Xbox Series X/S and PC as it has been a vision we’ve had for years,” said Piotr Babieno, CEO at Bloober Team. “Seeing first-hand how the game has changed from its original idea years ago to now how immersive it is with Bloober Team’s innovative dual-reality mechanics has been incredibly inspiring to our entire team. We can’t wait to showcase this as one of our most ambitious titles to date and deliver to players around the world one of the first next-gen horror games.”

While the launch trailer features the rekindled musical collaboration between Mary Elizabeth McGlynn and Akira Yamaoka, known for their work together on the Silent Hill series, Bloober Team also teases a second playable character in The Medium that was previously shown as the gloved man from The Medium - The Threats Official Trailer, which can be seen via the following link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H99-zcnNl8s.

The Medium is a third-person psychological horror game that features an innovative dual-reality gameplay that has been patented by Bloober Team. Players will play as Marianne, a medium gifted with a number of psychic abilities, and explore the real and spirit world both alternatively and simultaneously to uncover a dark mystery masked by disturbing secrets, sinister spirits, and devious puzzles only a medium can solve.

Developed and published by Bloober Team, and rated “M for Mature” by the ESRB and PEGI 18, The Medium is Bloober Team’s largest and most ambitious project to date, with no loading screens and utilizing the full potential of the latest version of the Unreal Engine 4, alongside Microsoft DirectX Raytracing and NVIDIA DLSS technology with the newest GeForce Game Ready Drivers from NVIDIA for PC today and Raytracing support for Xbox Series X. Akira Yamaoka, known for his work on the Silent Hill series, and Bloober Team’s Arkadiusz Reikowski collaborated together on the game’s original ‘dual’ score, creating truly unique atmospheres across both worlds.




Happy Gaming!

Revco, can you tell me if there are "action" sequences or "fighting" involved in this game? It looks very similar to "Someday You'll Return", and I couldn't even finish that game due to sneaking and hiding and running and fighting. So . . . I love the graphics and the look of the game, but can't do the action. Wish developers would stop adding that aspect to "adventure" games.

All is well, thank you, Marian! I just retired on Feb. 1, so it appears I'll have more time on my hands. Hope to be playing more games and perhaps posting more. smile

That sounds good, rayette! Congratulations on your retirement. thumbsup

I have only read a couple of reviews of this game, but it did sound like there was some running and hiding involved. Hopefully someone actually playing the game can tell you more.

Hi rayette,

I haven't come across any real "action" sequences or "fighting" involved in this game yet. It's more of a point and click with a 360 view.

Rayette, there is no real action in the game. There are a few times you will have to crouch or sneak, but nothing major. It is a psychological horror instead of a survival horror.

It's funny you mention Someday You'll Return Rayette...it has a bit of the new blair witch game & SYR feel to it. A little of the resident evil horror to it as well. A great adventure game for sure.

I was SO excited for the release of Someday You'll Return, revco, and I purchased it as soon as it was released. I played it almost 3/4 of the way through while struggling with some parts of it. Finally, I came up against a section I just could NOT get through. I tried and tried, but finally gave up in frustration. I REALLY wish the developers had left the sneaking and running and dying aspects out of the game. I was thoroughly enjoying the rest of it, but that one place stopped me in my tracks.

Rayette, have you installed the update? They got rid of a lot of that as you can see here.

Yes. I played after the update, and it did make things better. But I still reached a point where I just got so frustrated I quit. I may actually do as revco suggested and go back to it. Perhaps, now that I'm retired, I won't feel so "pressured" to get it done before I have to go back to work. Glad to know, though, that I was not alone in my frustration. Thank you, Ana and revco!
