The Medium Haunts The PS5 Today

Bloober Team’s The Medium brings DualSense-enhanced scares to players today


Eight months after making its debut on PC and Xbox Series X|S, The Medium is now available for PS5.

The Medium is the latest psychological horror title from Bloober Team, the studio behind Layers of Fear, Observer, and Blair Witch. Set in Krakow, Poland, players control Marianne, a psychic with the power to enter the spirit world and communicate with the dead, as she explores a Soviet-era resort to uncover the mystery behind her reoccurring nightmares. The game’s most unique feature is its dual-world gameplay, which allows you to explore both the physical and spirit realms at once on each half of the screen.

To celebrate the game’s arrival on PS4, the developer put out a fresh launch trailer, In it, we get a look at the game’s cast of characters, haunting setting, and more.

We scored the PS5 version of the game a 4.5/5 in our review this week, saying:

“The game’s arrival on the PlayStation 5 has been a long time coming. But thankfully, it was well worth the wait. With its unique dual-world gameplay mechanics, gripping narrative, and excellent use of the DualSense controller’s features, The Medium on PS5 is yet another macabre masterpiece from the talent at Bloober Team. If you have even a passing interest in horror games or are looking for a powerful supernatural story to experience that isn’t afraid to touch on uncomfortable subjects, this is one game that demands a spot in your library.”
