One of the bets for the premiere of Xbox Series X
The Medium is one of the first video games to be confirmed as a console exclusive for Xbox Series X. The creators of Layers of Fear, Observer and Blair Witch return to terror with a product that we saw for the first time in one of the digital events that Microsoft arranged to show the games of his new console. In the absence of Halo Infinite, delayed in part by the coronavirus crisis, the work of Bloober Team will be one of the most important in the premiere of the machine.
As confirmed by the study itself, the title will work on Xbox Series X at 30 fps, but with a resolution that will reach 4K.
