The Medium length: How long does it take to beat The Medium?

How long it takes you to complete The Medium will depend on whether or not you want to spend time hunting down all the Memos (the game's version of the collectibles) hidden away in and around the Niwa Hotel.

If you're planning on uncovering all of the hotel's secrets, then The Medium should take you roughly seven to eight hours to complete. If, however, you'd prefer to simply enjoy the game's story, then it will take six to seven hours.

How many missions are there in The Medium?

The Medium is divided into 14 missions of various lengths.

Many of these missions consist of a number of objectives which you'll need to complete to move forward. You can discover what your current objective is at any time by opening the item menu.

It's important to note that there are a couple of places, especially in the latter half of The Medium, where the game doesn't give you any objectives or hints about what to do next. If you're stuck at one of these moments, check out our The Medium story guide, which will give you an idea about what you need to do in those sections.

After completing the Medium, you can return to a number of your recent autosaves or you can restart the game completely if you want to experience Marianne's story all over again.
