The Medium

While we will be getting next generation consoles, we won’t be getting a lot of next gen only experiences. By and and large, games will be cross generational for a lot of the first year, but one game that is only for the new consoles is The Medium. It was one of the earliest next generation titles to be revealed, and one of the first we’ll get our hands on. And today we got a look at behind the scenes. Also, yeah, Troy Baker is here, too.

Both videos come to us via IGN. The first is a little behind the scenes piece of the developers talking about the game’s themes. While The Medium is obviously a horror game, it isn’t necessarily out to just scare you, as they say a lot of the game’s themes come to seeing two sides of a conflict, which mirrors its unique dual world gameplay. They also talk about some of the influences, such as Silent Hill, which has been mentioned before, as well as some art and artists.

The second video is an interview with Troy Baker. The voice of gaming, as he must be known by at this point, is revealed to be in the game as an entity called The Maw. In his video he talks about how he became involved with the project, as well as his thoughts on the game and the creature he’ll be playing. We only manage to see a very brief, but creepy, look at The Maw near the end.

The Medium is set to launch alongside the Xbox Series X this holiday season, and will also be available on PC. Bloober Team will also launch Observer: System Redux for both PS5 and Xbox Series X around the same time frame, and you can read more about that game through here.
