Supernatural horror game The Medium, developed by the folks behind Layers of Fear, releases later this week for Xbox Series X and S.

I’ve always been a fan of creepy and scary games. I especially love when you reach that point in a scary game where you’ve learned its systems and limitations and can then use that against the enemies, drastically reducing how scary the experience is. It’s a strange satisfaction to be able to play a game like Resident Evil 7 and no longer be afraid. Instead, you can get some payback on all those bastards who scared you before.

Beyond The Medium, other stuff is coming out this week too. Check out the full list below:

Man I hope The Medium is good...but even if it’s not, at least we’re getting a new Akira Yamaoka soundtrack. That’s worth the price of admission alone!
