The Medium Gets New Trailer During Golden Joystick Awards 2020
The trailer teases some cinematics and looks like it's still on track for a January 2021 launch.
Last night, The 38th Golden Joystick Awards ceremony took place, finding a range of video games and studios nominated for awards. In-between some awards were trailers and announcements, and one of those was Bloober Team’s PC and Xbox Series X / S title, The Medium.
There wasn’t much revealed apart from a fancy new trailer, but in saying that, it does feature the new release date that was announced earlier this month when the studio announced the game was being delayed. Originally the game was due to be launching in early December 2020, but it certainly seems as if Cyberpunk 2077’s new December launch has been the most likely cause for The Medium’s delay.
The trailer shows off some lovely looking, dark cinematics, and accompanied by a dramatic voiceover of some bloke who’s revealed to be relaxing in a comfy armchair. There’s a lot of shots of creepy flesh looking environments spanning the world, and even a snake which I’m sure becomes symbolic at some point.
Bloober Team has previously said that The Medium wasn’t possible on consoles until the Xbox Series X / S launched. And even if you planned to play it on a PC, it was reported that you need a GTX 1060 to run the game on its minimum specifications. It was eventually revealed that players will get to shift between two different dimensions — something the studio has been calling Dual-Reality System, and what it’s calling the studio’s most ambitious game ever.
If you’re curious about the story, a story trailer was released back in September. The Medium will be heading to PC and Xbox Series X / S on January 28, 2021. Those who pre-order the game will be able to get a free soundtrack and artbook.
