The Bloober Team said in an interview that their upcoming horror game The Medium will be like the Amnesia series.
The Bloober Team is a small physiological horror studio that donated games like Layers of Fear, Observer, and Blair Witch. Their latest game in development, The Medium, is one of the most highly anticipated games for the Xbox Series X / S, thanks to the game’s core gimmick of allowing the player to switch between the two realities.
When producer Jacek Zieb was asked how much action would be shown in The Medium, Ziba compared the game to the Amnesia franchise and stated that he would not have the level of action found in more focused horror games like Resident Evil.
“Our action scenes are more about Marianne’s survival than battles, so better approach what’s in Amnesia than something more action-oriented like Resident Evil. in defense and help her avoid the enemies she will face.”
This recent information suggests that you will be much more hiding than fighting in The Medium, which makes the comparison to Amnesia very relevant. There will be some battles, although probably for defense, not for attack.
The Medium was supposed to launch in December but has been delayed, making it one of the first major games of 2021. We hope the game will live up to expectations and the Bloober Team will deliver a truly terrifying experience for us to start the year right.
