Bloober Team presents “The Medium – DualSense Overview”, a new video explaining in detail how the PlayStation 5 version of the dual-reality horror game increases immersion through the console’s next-gen controller.
The Medium is coming to the PlayStation 5 computer entertainment system on September 3, 2021. Following a successful global launch on PC and Xbox Series X|S on January 28, 2021, Bloober Team is excited to bring 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 preorder the game at the price of $49.99/€49,99/£41.74 with a 10% off discount for PS Plus members before launch. Players 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).
“On PlayStation 5, we are taking full advantage of the console’s DualSense controller to immerse you even deeper into the mystery of the Niwa Hotel. Our goal is to let you feel Marianne’s reactions to what is happening as she explores and interacts with the game world,”
Szymon Erdmański – Producer at Bloober Team
Furthermore, Bloober Team and Black Screen Records are happy to announce that The Medium Original Soundtrack will be published on vinyl and CD, with a release expected in October. Pre-orders are available now for the price of €34.
Bloober Team and global retail publishing partner Koch Media are thrilled to bring The Medium to retail stores worldwide. The game will be published and available in retail on September 3 for PC, Xbox Series X|S, and PS5™, with The Medium: Two Worlds Special Edition available in certain territories, which comes complete with an exclusive steel book, the soundtrack of the game and printed artbook. In Japan, the publisher NA Publishing will bring the game to all three platforms by Holiday 2021.
