  • A new four minute gameplay video on the YouTube channel shows this unique game mechanic in action.
  • The Medium looks gorgeous in 4K, and Dual Reality looks to set the game apart from anything before it.

After the Medium revealed a brand-new trailer at the Xbox Games Showcase, the official Xbox YouTube channel released a four minute gamepolay video showcase the Medium in action, including the new Dual Reality feature that looks technically and visually very impressive.

The gameplay video shows how players can explore the real world and a hidden paranormal world at the same time, and use this mirrored reality to find hidden passages, solve puzzles, and traverse through a dark and terrifying world. Even the small snippet the video shows seems very impressive, and is only possible due to the power of the Xbox Series X, which combines powerful specs with a super fast SSD to render two beautiful environments simultaneously.
