The Medium, arguably one of the most anticipated Xbox Series X games, is set to release on January 28, 2021 for Microsoft’s next-gen consoles and Steam. It’ll also be included as part of Xbox Game Pass at launch.

The psychological horror game features an interesting gameplay mechanic. Players can explore two realities on screen at the same time: the physical world and the spiritual world. You’ll need to utilize your physic abilities in both worlds to solve puzzles and avoid hostile spirits.

Developer Bloober Team have stated that this split-reality gameplay is only possible due to the power of next-gen hardware.

The Medium’s soundtrack promises to be a particular highlight, as it’s being handled by famed Silent Hill composer, Akira Yamaoka. Expect an unsettling and eerie composition throughout, then.

Our Gaming Editor, Vic Hood, got an early look at the game ahead of release and in this video, we’ll talk through her first impressions of the new Xbox exclusive.
