Known for their psychological horror games, indie development studio Bloober Team, has set a December release date for The Medium. The game will be one of the first titles to launch exclusively on the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S with pre-orders now live.
From the creative minds behind Blair Witch, Observer and Layers of Fear comes a brand new psychological horror set in a dual-reality world. The distinct and nightmarishly dark art style of the game is inspired by Polish artist Zdzisław Beksiński who is known for his dystopian surrealist work. Both realities are rendered at the same time with no loading screens allowing players to fully immerse themselves into the eerie experience.
To prepare players for the disturbingly thrilling adventure into the spirit world, Bloober Team is giving away a new track. Marianne’s Theme by Arkadiusz Reikowski, from the original soundtrack, is free to download now on Steam. Marianne is the central character of the game who is a medium that is plagued by visions. Using her psychic energy she can live and interact between the real world and the spirit realm.
The Medium has set a December 10 release date on Steam for PC and the Xbox Series X/S. Priced at $49.99 USD, players who order the game on Steam, Epic Games Store and Microsoft Store before December 10 will receive a 10% discount. In addition those who pre-order the game on Steam or Epic Games Store will also get The Medium original soundtrack, featuring a ‘dual’ score soundtrack by legendary composer Akira Yamaoka, of Silent Hill, and Bloober Team’s own Arkadiusz Reikowski, along with the digital artbook.
