Bloober Team today announces that its third-person psychological horror game The Medium will be released on December 10th as 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 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.
As an added bonus, Bloober Team is giving away a 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 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.
