Bloober Team, the studio behind acclaimed horror games including Blair Witch, Observer: System Redux, and Layers of Fear, just released a new video featuring nine uncanny facts about its upcoming and much-anticipated psychological horror game: The Medium.
The Medium is a third-person psychological horror game that features innovative dual-reality gameplay that has been patented by Bloober Team. In the game, 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.
As gamers get ready for the release on January 28th, they will be able to learn more about the game, its development, and the people involved. The latest four-and-half-minute video (featured above) showcases a variety of intriguing and facts along with easter eggs about The Medium that players may have never heard about – some of which includes the first concepts of the game that started in 2012, or how the game’s setting at the abandoned Niwa Hotel is based on a real hotel in Bloober Team’s hometown in Kraków, Poland. In addition, the video shares sneak peeks into some of the development hurdles that the team has endured during the pandemic, as well as useful gameplay tips and behind-the-scenes footage that haven’t been published before.
The Medium will be available exclusively for Xbox Series consoles and PC via Steam, Epic Games Store, and the Microsoft Store. Players who pre-order via Steam will receive The Medium Original Soundtrack (by Akira Yamaoka and Arkadiusz Reikowski) and The Art of The Medium (digital artbook).
