Ahead of its release later this month, players can take an extended look at Bloober Team’s The Medium with more than 14 minutes of new gameplay footage.
This psychological horror game puts players in the shoes of the medium Marianne, who has the ability to travel in the spirit realm. Along the way, she can use her psychic abilities against hostile forces (using abilities like energy shields and spirit blasts), and can recharge them by interacting with energy spots called spirit wells. Through it all, players must survive encounters with a monster known as The Maw.
The supernatural setting was inspired by Zdzisław Beksiński’s dystopian surrealist artwork (which features an ominous style), and composers Arkadiusz Reikowski and Akira Yamaoka were both tasked with scoring the physical and spiritual plane.
