Bloober Team release, Today’s Bloober Team released a live-action trailer to celebrate the upcoming release of their new psychological horror title, The Medium. The two-and-a-half-minute trailer was produced in collaboration with award-winning VFX and animation studio Platige Image, with Academy Award nominee Thomas Paginsky working as creative writer and producer, and talented Pawe Maślona as director.
The trailer perfectly captures what we’ve seen from the game so far, with stunning detail and artistic style inspired by painter Zdzisław Beksiński. You’ll also be able to see real-life actors acting out characters from the game, including the protagonist Mariana, Thomas, a spirit called Grief, and the evil and heroic entity are known as The Maw.
“The Medium is a game with a very powerful narrative spine. The most important thing for me was to understand the essence of this story, its protagonists, and its tone.” Said creative writer and producer, Bagiński. The task was to lean as closely as possible on the emotional side of the story during Trying to keep as many twists as possible a secret. The script is supposed to build a mood rather than reveal a story.
“The Medium is our largest and most ambitious project to date,” said Piotr Babieno, CEO of Bloober Team. “When we thought about who could write a live trailer for the game, Tomasz Bagiński quickly became the most natural choice. After all, his Oscar-nominated cathedral was also inspired by Zdzisław Beksiński’s art, just like the spirit world in our game. Personally, I am very happy that we can. Create something together. “
The Medium launches on January 28 for Xbox Series X | S and PC via Steam and Epic Store. To watch the live-action trailer, you can watch it below:
