From Press Release:
KRAKOW, Poland – August 6, 2021 – Bloober Team presents “The Medium – DualSense Overview”, a new video explaining in detail how the PlayStation®5 version of the dual-reality horror game increases immersion through the console’s next-gen controller.
“On PlayStation 5, we are taking full advantage of the console’s DualSense controller to immerse you even deeper into the mystery of the Niwa Hotel. Our goal is to let you feel Marianne’s reactions to what is happening as she explores and interacts with the game world,” explains Szymon Erdmański, producer at Bloober Team.
The Medium is coming to the PlayStation®5 computer entertainment system on September 3, 2021. Following a successful global launch on PC and Xbox Series X|S on January 28, 2021, Bloober Team is excited to bring The Medium to PS5™ to take advantage of the console hardware as well as the DualSense controller, offering players the experience of exploring two worlds simultaneously.
The Medium is a third-person psychological horror game that features innovative dual-reality gameplay. Players assume the role of Marianne, a medium gifted with several 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.
