The Medium: What does a medium do?

The Bloober Team’s upcoming game, The Medium, is set to launch on January 28 for PC and Xbox Series X|S, a console exclusive. In the process of promoting the game, Bloober has shared good chunks of its gameplay and the lead character, Marianne’s ability to enter the spirit realm and learn things by touching inanimate objects.

For some gamers, the question was raised, what exactly does a medium do? The game isn’t an adaption of the Patricia Arquette-led TV show, Medium, that ran on CBS from 2005 to 2010. It also isn’t inspired by the Jennifer Love Hewitt show, Ghost Whisperer, either, which also ran on CBS from 2005 to 2010.

No, The Bloober Team’s The Medium is much darker, scarier, and intense. In a new video the team shared what gamer can expect in terms of gameplay and what Marianne’s abilities consist of as well as how she uses them to accomplish her goals.
