Bloober Team has a bunch of fun behind-the-scenes facts about the making of their new title. From real-world inspirations to footage that helped the devs continue working on the game during the pandemic.

Bloober Team, the studio that brought Blair Witch, Observer: System Redux and Layers of Fear in front of our eyeballs just released a new video detailing no less than nine interesting facts about their upcoming psychological horror title, The Medium.

We're now in the final stretch leading to the game’s release on January 28, and the video will help the would-be players learn more about the game, its development, and the people involved. 

When it launches on January 28, The Medium will be available exclusively for Xbox Series consoles and PC via Steam, Epic Games Store, and the Microsoft Store.

The new four-and-half-minute video showcases a variety of intriguing and uncanny facts along with some easter eggs about The Medium that players may have never heard about. Some of these include initial concepts for a game the team started working on back in 2012.

More fun facts from the video: the game's setting is quite real. The abandoned Niwa Hotel from The Medium is based on a hotel in Bloober Team’s hometown in Kraków, Poland.

In the video, you'll also find various sneak peeks into some of the development hurdles that the team has endured during the pandemic, as well as useful gameplay tips and behind-the-scenes footage that haven’t been published before.

The Medium is a third-person psychological horror game that features innovative dual-reality gameplay that has been patented by Bloober Team. Players will play as Marianne, a medium gifted with many 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.

The Medium can be preordered on Steam , Epic Games Store and the Microsoft Store at the price of £41.74 ($49.99/€49.99) with a 10 per cent off discount before launch.
