Frictional has finally revealed what they’ve been working on after teasing fans for the past couple days with a teaser site. Today, Frictional revealed SOMA, a new sci-fi horror game that is played very similarly to the way they created Amnesia. You can read the official details of the game just below and check out the first gameplay trailer as well.
Strange occurrences are disrupting the routines of the PATHOS-2 research facility. The radio is silent. Behavioral anomalies of the machines are increasingly dangerous, if not… malevolent. The facility is devolving into chaos. No weapons, and the only escape is practically unthinkable.
From Frictional Games, creators of the groundbreaking Amnesia and Penumbra series, SOMA is an aberrant tale of scientific inquiry and survival; an entropic exploration of synapse and circuit that wades through the delusions of human consciousness.
Three years in the making, SOMA is a unique continuation of Frictional Games’ signature style of explorative horror, provocative storytelling, and unfathomable tension, free of distractive cut-scenes and combat. SOMA is coming to PC and PlayStation 4 in 2015.
