Ahead of the game’s launch on PlayStation 5, Bloober Team presents a new video: The Medium PS5 – Gamescom Launch Trailer (above).
The trailer showcases key elements on the game’s story, and features both primary locations and protagonists, including the Hound – a mysterious entity from the spirit world.
The score is provided by “Across the shore” a theme composed by Akira Yamaoka and Arkadiusz Reikowski, and performed by Mary Elisabeth McGlynn.
Following a successful global launch on PC and Xbox Series X|S on January 28, 2021, Bloober Team is releasing The Medium to PS5 to take advantage of the console hardware as well as the DualSense controller, offering players the experience of exploring two worlds simultaneously.
The Medium is a third-person psychological horror game that features innovative dual-reality gameplay. Players assume the role of Marianne, a medium gifted with several psychic abilities, and explore the real and spirit world both alternatively and simultaneously to uncover a dark mystery masked by disturbing secrets, sinister spirits, and devious puzzles only a medium can solve.
Players can head to the PlayStation Store to pre-order the game with a 10% off discount for PS Plus members before launch.
Those who pre-order the game will receive the digital Original Soundtrack (by Akira Yamaoka and Arkadiusz Reikowski) and The Art of The Medium (digital artbook).
Bloober Team and Black Screen Records will also publish The Medium Original Soundtrack on vinyl and CD, with a release expected in October 2021.
Bloober Team and global retail publishing partner Koch Media are bringing The Medium to retail stores worldwide. The game will be published and available in retail for PC, Xbox Series X|S, and PS5, with The Medium: Two Worlds Special Edition available at selected retailers, which comes complete with an exclusive steelbook, soundtrack of the game and printed artbook.
In Japan, publisher NA Publishing will bring the game to all three platforms by holiday season 2021.
Developed and published by Bloober Team, and rated R18+, The Medium is Bloober Team’s largest and most ambitious project to date, with no loading screens and utilising the full potential of the latest version of the Unreal Engine 4.
The Medium releases on PlayStation 5 September 3, 2021.
