The Medium – which arrives for Xbox Series X & S, and PC via Steam this holiday – comes from Bloober Team, the horror-focused studio behind Layers of Fear, Observer, and Blair Witch.
It will use next-gen power to render two separate worlds simultaneously, with players forced to solve puzzles and overcome challenges in both to proceed – all while avoiding The Maw. Storied voice actor Troy Baker has described his villain as “something I’ve never done before”, and even gave a brief demonstration of how he performs The Maw’s voice for us during Gamescom 2020.
The Medium is just one of two Bloober Team games coming to next-gen this year, with Observer: System Redux also arriving on launch day.

Democratic norms are being stress-tested all over the world, and the past few years have thrown up all kinds of questions we didn't know needed clarifying – how long is too long for a parliamentary prorogation? How far should politicians be allowed to intervene in court cases? To monitor these issues as closely as we have in the past we need your support, so please consider donating to The Climax News Room.
