Bloober Team announces psychological horror game The Medium for Xbox Series X, PC

Become a medium living in two different worlds.

The Medium

Bloober Team has announced The Medium, a psychological horror game coming to Xbox Series X and PC (Steam). It will launch this holiday and be available with Xbox Game Pass.

“Every one of our games has a central theme that drives its creative and technological design,” said Bloober Team CEO Piotr Babieno in a press release. “In The Medium, we focus on perspective and perception. When you change your point of view, you discover that things are more complicated and nuanced than you initially thought. The Medium is our most ambitious game ever and we can’t wait to show you how we’re translating this vision into a psychological horror.”

Here is an overview of the game, via Bloober Team:

Become a medium living in two different worlds: the real one and the spirit one. Haunted by the vision of a child’s murder, you travel to an abandoned hotel resort, which many years ago became the stage of an unthinkable tragedy. There you begin your search for difficult answers.

As a medium with access to both worlds, you have a wider perspective and can see more clearly that there’s no one simple truth to what others perceive. Nothing is what it seems, everything has another side.

The Medium features a “dual” soundtrack by Bloober Team’s Arkadiusz Reikowski and legendary composer Akira Yamaoka of Silent Hill fame.
