Does The Medium Have Difficulty Options?

The Medium (1)

Wondering if you can stick The Medium on ‘easy’ or whack the difficulty all the way up to ‘Nightmare’? Read on.

If you’re just about to jump into Bloober Team’s latest horror title, The Medium, you may be wondering if it has difficulty options available. Can you dial down the threats in the game, or make it a truly difficult survival horror experience?

The short answer is no; there are no difficulty options in The Medium. But if you like your games super easy or rock-hard, don’t let that put you off.


Thanks to the nature of The Medium, it doesn’t need any difficulty options. There’s no combat to get to grips with. There are no survival elements. For the most part, you’re simply walking around, engaging with the environment.

There are a few chase sequences, but these don’t require any special skill. A few stealth sections, that see you sneaking past a terrifying enemy, might require a bit of stealth ability, but again, there’s nothing too difficult. This isn’t a game designed to test your skill; it’s about the experience.

So whether you’re an expert horror game player or a complete novice, you’ll find The Medium to be welcoming enough. Well, as welcoming as a horror game ever is, anyway.
