The Medium System Requirements

Bloober Team now offers What Does a Medium Do, a new video they call the second in a "premonition video series" from The Medium, their upcoming psychological horror game. They also offer the game's system requirements, ranging from Minimum through Ray Tracing High, adding up to seven sets of specs in total, hopefully leaving most players with a happy medium (you knew we had to work that in there). Here's word on the clip:
Bloober Team today debuted the second installment in its premonition video series, which shines a light on how upcoming psychological horror title The Medium plays.

The latest quickfire video entitled What Does A Medium Do? explains what it means to be a medium like Marianne - the game’s protagonist - and showcases some of the unique psychic abilities she is able to use to navigate the spirit world and unravel its mysteries.

I didn't buy a RTX 3080 to run games at 30fps. I'll wait to see the inevitable benchmarks, as I'll be running at 1440p, but I really hope performance is better than they seem to be indicating.

As for the game, it gives me real Alone In The Dark vibes. Certainly I'll be keeping my eye on the reviews.
Given that all the settings use 30 fps as the target, it's possible that the devs pulled a dumb and capped it at 30 "for cinematic reasons" (aka. "Next Gen Consoles can't perform better, so we're restricting the PC version so it isn't the best").

The game has uncapped framerates in the options.

As long as it runs above 60fps without raytracing then it's fine. Most games I'm hard pressed to even tell if raytracing is doing anything or not and those where it is more obvious - like Control - have a lot of visual noise that detracts from the experience. Raytracing is definitely going to remain an optional feature until we see more compelling implementations.

I hope they don't pull a CDPR because those system requirements remind me of Cyberpunk 2077.

Specs like this are going to be common now with the new consoles, no correlation at all to CDPR.
