The psychological horror title, The Medium, is heading to Xbox Series X as a launch title later this year and will bring with it a tension-fueled psychological horror experience that will begin to make players question what they have experienced.
Known for their titles Blair Witch, Layers of Fear, and Observer, Bloober Team isn’t holding back their punches with their upcoming title, The Medium. Said to be their most ambitious title yet, The Medium promises a title that will push the boundaries with the central idea of the game being created around its very motif of “how your perspective changes your perception”.
To bring the experience to life, Bloober Team’s Arkadiusz Reikowski has teamed up with famed Silent Hill composer Akira Yamaoka, using his talent alongside their own to create an unforgettable experience that they hope fans will be talking about in the years to come. The music will bring the story of Marianne to life, a medium that is haunted by her visions of two worlds that intersect one another: The real world and the spirit world.
“The inclusion of the legendary Akira Yamaoka – best known for his work on the Silent Hill franchise – is a dream come true. We’ve been inspired by many of the previous games he has worked on and are thrilled to bring a new one to life with The Medium,” states Piotr Babieno, CEO of Bloober team.
As she is a medium, Marianne can access both worlds, giving players a wider perspective of what is not just a simple truth, but a truth to what others perceive as their own. It’s a concept that has intrigued fans over time when used, giving them a chance to see two very different realities that exist side-by-side, creating absolutely beautiful experiences, just as it had in franchises such as Blair Witch and Silent Hill.
“Every one of our games has a central theme that drives its creative and technological design. 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,” explains, Babieno about their upcoming title.
Bloober Team has revealed that they will be publishing as well as developing their upcoming title, which is set to launch on both Xbox Series X and PC this Holiday season.
