The Medium’s trailers are few in number — in fact, they number just one as of writing — and they reveal very little concrete about the game. Mostly they serve as hype vehicles to illustrate the game’s disturbing atmosphere and visuals, and to promote the collaboration with legendary Silent Hill composer Akira Yamaoka.
Bloober Team, previously know for its work on Blair Witch, Observer and Layers of Fear, is developing this new title for the Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Windows. In the game, players take on the role of Marianne, a woman capable of traveling between the real world and the spirit world. Marianne uses her powers to solve the murder of a child at an abandoned hotel resort.
The first trailer for the game showed off the two worlds in flashes just long enough to see the influence of Polish painter Zdzisław Beksiński on its haunting landscape. The trailer also featured music from Yamaoka’s half of the soundtrack, the other half of which will be scored by Bloober Team’s Arkadiusz Reikowski.
The trailer debuted May 7 during the Inside Xbox broadcast detailing titles coming to the Series X.
