Blooper Team reveals The Medium's finalised PC system requirements 

The Medium has just received its finalised PC system requirements, revealing the hardware the PC gamers will need to play one of 2021's first next-generation exclusives. 

The Medium will be released on PC and Xbox Series systems, utilising the advanced CPU hardware of next-generation gaming platforms to deliver a unique experience which spans two worlds. The spirit world and material worlds can be traversed simultaneously within The Medium, placing high loads on modern PCs and next-generation consoles alike. 

Blooper Team's PC system requirements for The Medium only offer gamers 30 FPS options, suggesting that 60 FPS framerates will be challenging to achieve on PCs and consoles alike. We will find out more than The Medium is released on January 28th, but PC gamers should expect this game to be hard to run on older hardware. 

As a next-generation exclusive, The Medium is also designed with SSD storage in mind. Blooper Team recommends SSD storage to all PC gamers who wish to play The Medium. Yes, HDD storage is listed within the game's minimum system requirements, but even then SSD storage is listed as a recommendation.
 


As a next-generation title, The Medium is designed with next-generation hardware in mind, featuring DXR ray tracing support on day-1 through Microsoft's DirectX 12 API. Thankfully, these effects can be disabled for those with incompatible hardware, making the game accessible to PC gamers with strong quad-core processors and a GTX 1060 (or AMD R9 390X) or better. That said, the game also has a DirectX 11 mode, which appears to be recommended for those who do not wish to use ray tracing.
