'The Medium' (ALL) Introduces New Character, Location - Screens & Trailer

The Medium is a tension-fueled, psychological horror game built around a central motif: how your perspective changes your perception.

The Medium renders two fully-fledged and visually distinct worlds simultaneously with no loading screens. Having access to both worlds gives a unique perspective to the tension-fueled, psychological horror game as the dual-reality gameplay with this visual fidelity only being possible on next-gen hardware.

Players will find themselves in the body of Marianne, a medium hounded by visions, living and interacting across two worlds: the real, and the spirit world. Nothing is what it seems, everything has another side. 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. 

Akira Yamaoka, of Silent Hill fame and Bloober Team’s Arkadiusz Reikowski are working together on the game’s original ‘dual’ score, creating truly unique atmospheres across both worlds.


This new trailer for dual reality game The Medium introduces a new character and takes players beyond the corridors of the Niwa Hotel.

The character’s face whose name will be revealed in time, is based on Marcin Dorociński, a Polish actor who fans will recognize from the popular Netflix series The Queen's Gambit. This mysterious figure is capable of ruthlessness and brutality and has his own revenge driven agenda. As players uncover more about his story, they will see how it connects with Marianne’s investigation.

Fans will also learn more about the spirit world, a dark mirrored reflection of the real world that symbolizes the rawest emotions such as fear and anger. And they’ll discover The Maw is not the only hostile spirit lurking there.

The Medium will launch for Xbox Series X|S and PC (Steam, Epic Games Store, and Microsoft Store) on January 28, 2021.
