Based on the Xbox E3 2021 press conference, the Xbox Series X|S has a bright future. In the medium term, the platform is losing a high-profile exclusive.

Bloober Team has announced that the super spooky psychological horror game The Medium will be getting a PlayStation 5 release on September 3, 2021.

The relatively acclaimed scarefest debuted on Xbox Series X|S and PC in January, and is notable for a dual-reality gameplay system that lets players explore two worlds simultaneously. It’s one of the few next-gen games on Xbox to truly feel next-gen.


The PlayStation 5 edition will include further enhancements by utilising the haptic capabilities of the console’s Dual Sense controller.

Through a partnership with publisher Koch Media, The Medium will also get a retail release on all platforms. A limited-run Two Worlds Special Launch Edition will be available in selected territories and comes bundled with a steelbook case, a 32-page art book, and a copy of the game’s soundtrack by Arkadiusz Reikowski and Akira Yamaoka.

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
