The Medium PC system requirements and file size revealed

At the Xbox Series X games showcase, we got to see some next-gen games in action. One of the titles which should be very exciting for horror fans is The Medium, a next-gen psychological horror featuring Silent Hill composer, Akira Yamaoka.

The game looks fantastic with its dual reality gameplay, which probably made a lot of gamers wonder what the PC system requirements are. Well, we've got you covered, and there's still quite a bit of time to upgrade before The Medium's release date window of "Holiday 2020".


The Medium PC system requirements and file size

First up, the file size for The Medium, as per the game's official Steam page, is only 30 GB. This is quite low compared to most other big games out there. Considering The Medium is a next-gen title, the file size might have been kept a bit smaller with compression techniques for next-gen console SSDs. 

Thankfully, you won't require an SSD to run the game. While most gaming PCs built in the past few years should be able to run The Medium, the game does boast some serious "recommended" PC system requirements.
