The Medium PC system requirements announced

Microsoft’s first exclusive of 2021, The Medium, is coming to PC and Xbox Series X/S next week and like all other Microsoft exclusives, it will also be available through Game Pass on day one. With just over a week left to go until release, Blooper Team has unveiled the PC system requirements for the game, broken down for 1080p, 1440p, 4K and ray-tracing.

The Medium is a horror-mystery with a bit of a Stranger Things vibe. Players will switch between the real world and the much more dangerous ‘spirit realm’. Over time, you’ll gain new abilities and unravel the mystery.

Now as for system requirements, each category targets 30 frames per second, which is a tad worrying but hopefully the final game will support higher frame rates. Here are all of the system requirements:

  • CPU: Intel Core i5-6600 or AMD Ryzen 5
