New SOMA Trailer to prepare for E3!


Every so often, we all want to be a little frightened. If you look at some of the Let’s Plays of Amnesia: The Dark Descent, you can see that Frictional Games has never been satisfied with being “a little” scary. The team behind the Amnesia and Penumbra series are doing it again, and this time they’re bringing us the terrifying sci-fi world of SOMA.

What’s SOMA about? Well, the details are a bit light, but that’s just how we prefer our horror, right? It’s not scary if you know everything. From the official site:

The radio has gone silent on PATHOS-2. As isolation bears down on the staff of the remote research facility, strange things are happening.
Machines are taking on human traits and alien constructions have started to interfere with routine. The world around them is turning into a nightmare.
The only way out is to do something unimaginable.

E3 means that everyone is jumping on the ball to hype up their games, and Frictional is no exception with the above new SOMA trailer. If that isn’t enough, we also have their gameplay trailer that fans unlocked through the SOMA ARG. One thing is certain – we’re all going to scream again.

SOMA is coming to PC and PS4 on September 22nd. You can check out more at the official site of the game.

About David A. Reeves

David is a 25 year old graduate with a BA in English, and he's wondering how all of this adult stuff crept up on him. He has a large love of Fire Emblem and Final Fantasy, a lack of budget sense during Steam sales, and is involved in an abusive relationship with the MMO genre. Outside of gaming, David can be found reading books with swords and magic, suffering from writer's block on that story he said he'd write, enjoying a hookah or a beer with friends, and trying not to say anything inappropriate despite the overwhelming urge. He's an odd fellow.
