New Trailer for The Medium Shows Dual Play and Chills

The Xbox Games Showcase has delivered a brand new trailer for the upcoming horror game, The Medium, and it looks as intriguing/terrifying as ever.

Revealed during the previous Xbox Game Showcase, today brings a new trailer for The Medium, which shows off some very intriguing looking gameplay elements:

I’m very interested in how this dual character aspect will play into the overall gameplay, so it’s too bad that I’m a giant chicken and the trailer alone is enough to make me want a change of pants. Still, this looks like something special for horror game fans to enjoy.

Discover a dark mystery only a medium can solve. Travel to an abandoned communist resort and use your unique psychic abilities to uncover its deeply disturbing secrets, solve dual-reality puzzles, survive encounters with sinister spirits, and explore two realities at the same time.

The Medium is a third-person psychological horror game that features patented dual-reality gameplay and an original soundtrack co-composed by Arkadiusz Reikowski and Akira Yamaoka.

Wield unique psychic abilities reserved for those with the gift. Travel between the realities or explore them both at the very same time. Use the Out of Body experience to investigate places where your real-world self can’t go. Create energy shields and deliver powerful spirit blasts to survive the spirit world and its otherworldly dangers.

Delve deep into a mature and morally ambiguous story, where nothing is what it seems and everything has another side. As a medium you see, hear and experience more than others, and with every new perspective you will change your perception on what happened at the Niwa resort.

Never-seen-before and officially patented gameplay that plays out across two worlds displayed at the same time. Explore the physical world and the spirit world simultaneously, and use the interactions between them to solve dual-reality puzzles, unlock new paths, and awaken memories of past events.

No word on a release date yet, but The Medium will hit the Xbox One and Xbox Series X.
