The Medium–the new psychological horror game from Bloober Team–will arrive in the (Saint) nick of time this Yuletide season.
Bloober Team–which announced the game earlier this year–this week dropped a teaser trailer that announces the release date of Dec. 10, as reported by comicbook.com. That spooky trailer can be viewed on this page.
The Medium–a third-person horror game–will be available on Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S and PC. There is no word of any additional platforms as of this writing.
The game, as explained, sports a unique dual-reality gameplay feature, as well as a soundtrack co-composed by Akira Yamaoka, who composed Silent Hill.
When players tackle the game, according to the official description, they will discover “a dark mystery only a medium can solve.” Acting as a medium, players will “travel to the abandoned Niwa resort and use your unique psychic abilities to uncover its deeply disturbing secrets, solve dual-reality puzzles, survive encounters with sinister spirits and explore two realities at the same time.”
The game’s key features include:
* Become a Medium: Using psychic abilities, players will travel between realities, have out-of-body experiences and create energy shields and powerful spirit blasts.
* See What’s Hidden: See, hear and experience more than others can and change your perception on what happened at the Niwa resort.
* Play in Two Worlds at the Same Time: Explore the physical and spiritual worlds simultaneously and use the interactions between them to solve dual-reality puzzles, unlock new paths and awaken memories of past events.
* Enter a Dark Reality: The game’s world is a dark mirror of our reality–an unsettling place where our unpunished deeds, evil urges and vile secrets manifest themselves and can take on a form.
Bloober Team–a prolific Polish studio–is best known for its Layers of Fear series and the popular horror game The Observer.
