SOMA Trailer: Ghost in the Seashell
This new trailer for Frictional Games' first-person horror title, SOMA, features all kinds of monstrosities you'll be hiding from under the sea.
The makers of Amnesia and the Penumbra series are returning with SOMA. As the horror scene is starting to shy away from guns and putting us in the first-person perspective of unarmed survivors, we're glad to see a game like SOMA do it right. Following in the footsteps of Alien: Isolation, you're stuck in an isolated research facility where there are all kinds of things out to kill you that you have no chance of fending against. As a result, you must be as stealthy as you can be in order to survive. Similar to Isolation's Sevastopol Station, PATHOS-2 is an underwater science facility where there are many lurking threats coming from the machinery in the building. You'll be creeped out by the game's amazing sense of atmosphere, and you'll be terrorized by the things that haunt its hallways.
While you're in PATHOS-2, you'll see that your food is just about gone, the radios are no longer functioning and the robotic machinery patrolling the station believe they're human beings. Even worse, some of them might even want to end you so the machines can be as the only sources of sentient life on the station. While SOMA provides a creepy mystique, it also questions what it means to be human.
SOMA will be launching on Sept. 22 for PlayStation 4 and PC.
