Bloober Team has announced The Medium release date for December 10, 2020. The Medium is a third-person psychological horror game that will be one of the first titles to launch exclusively for the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S. The game will also be available on the PC – pre-orders are now live on Steam, Epic Games Store, and Microsoft Store.
The creative minds behind such acclaimed titles as Blair Witch, Observer, and Layers of Fear debut a brand new video that gives you a closer look at the dual-reality world, showcasing the game’s dark art style inspired by Polish artist Zdzisław Beksiński, and his dystopian surrealist work. Bloober Team’s artists have closely studied Beksiński’s paintings to bring the visually distinct and nightmarish atmosphere to life, pairing it with an evocative score from Arkadiusz Reikowski and Akira Yamaoka to create a truly eerie experience.
Bloober Team also revealed three concept art photos. Additionally, they’ve announced an added bonus: a free new track, Marianne’s Theme by Arkadiusz Reikowski, from the original soundtrack as a free download via Steam, to prepare players for a disturbing journey into the spirit world.
The Medium pre-orders are live now for both the Xbox Series X/S and PC via Steam on www.themediumgame.com, priced $49.99 / €49.99 / £41.74 with a 10% discount for players who order before December 10th via Steam, Epic Games Store and Microsoft Store. Players who pre-order via Steam will receive The Medium Original Soundtrack featuring a ‘dual’ score soundtrack by legendary composer Akira Yamaoka, of Silent Hill fame, and Bloober Team’s Arkadiusz Reikowski, and The Art of The Medium digital artbook.
The Medium gives players access to two visually distinct worlds simultaneously – the real world and the spirit world through dual-reality gameplay that has been patented by Bloober Team. Players will find themselves in the body of Marianne, a medium hounded by visions, living, and interacting across the two worlds through her psychic energy.
Developed and published by Bloober Team, The Medium release date is December 10, 2020 and is rated “M for Mature” by the ESRB and PEGI 18 and will launch on Xbox Series X|S and PC via Steam.
