The Medium was originally slated to release on Dec. 10, and set to be a console exclusive for the Xbox Series X and S while also being available on PC. While not a launch title for the next-generation consoles, The Medium was one of the handful of new exclusives that were set to be released for the Xbox Series X and S before the holiday season.
A psychological horror game, The Medium takes inspiration from the work of surrealist artist Zdzislaw Beksinski to create a distinct and nightmarish atmosphere that is enhanced by a hallowing score from Arkadiusz Reikowski and Akira Yamaoka. The game follows Marianne, a medium plagued by visions who lives between the two worlds through her psychic energy.
