Bloober Team, the studio behind horror titles like Blair Witch, Observer: System Redux and Layers of Fear, debuted a new trailer for The Medium that introduces a new characters and takes players beyond the corridors of the Niwa Hotel.
The Medium is an upcoming dual reality and psychological horror game launching for Xbox Series X|S and PC on January 28, 2021.
The newly-revealed character’s face is based on Marcin Dorociński, a Polish actor that fans may recognize from the popular Netflix series The Queen’s Gambit. This mysterious figure, whose name will be announced at a later date, 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 in the game.
Fans will also learn more about the spirit world, a dark, mirrored reflection of the real world, symbolizing the rawest human emotions, such as fear and anger. Plus, they’ll discover that The Maw is not the only hostile spirit lurking within the realm.
The Medium is Bloober Team’s largest and most ambitious project to date. The game is available for preorder on Steam, the Epic Games Store and the Microsoft Store for $49.99 with a 10% off discount before launch. Players who pre-order via Steam will also receive The Medium’s original soundtrack (from Akira Yamaoka and Arkadiusz Reikowski) and The Art of The Medium, a digital artbook.
