Bloober Team, the studio behind Blair Witch and Layers of Fear, has announced a new release date for its next title, The Medium. The psychological horror game is now scheduled to launch on Xbox Series X and Series S–as well as PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store–on December 10.
Coinciding with the release date announcement, Bloober Team has shared a new trailer for The Medium. This video provides another look at the game’s macabre art style and premieres a haunting new music track that’s available to download on Steam. You can watch the new trailer below.
The Medium casts players in the role of a medium named Marianne, who lives in two worlds: the human world and the spirit world. After seeing visions of a young girl’s murder, Marianne travels to an abandoned hotel to search for the truth about what happened there years ago.
According to Bloober Team, The Medium is skipping Xbox One in favor of the Series X because the newer system allows the studio to realize its vision for the game. “Thanks to the power of Xbox Series X, we can develop the game the way we have always envisioned it,” Jacek Zięba, a producer at the studio, said. “This is truly a great piece of hardware, one that enables us to realize our vision of the game without compromises. I can’t wait for the fans to see what the console is really capable of.”
The Medium is available to preorder now ahead of its release. If you’re planning to pick it up on PC, Bloober Team recently revealed the system requirements and recommended specs you’d need to run the horror game. You can read more about the title in our Medium preorder guide.
