This live-action SOMA series precedes the game

Sep 29
SOMA was released on PC last week, and as it turns out, it seems to be pretty good. Now you can experience the prequel by way of a live-action mini-series, sanctioned by developer Frictional Games. If you dig this inaug...

Review: SOMA

Sci-fi excellence
Sep 21
What makes us human? Is it our physical body, our intellect, our spirit -- or all of the above? These questions permeate an underwater world where everything’s gone mad. The machines have lost it, taking over all that w...

SOMA handles horror differently than Amnesia

Frictional compares the two
Sep 03
In June, I told myself to stay away from watching and subsequently covering any more trailers for SOMA. That was going well -- until today. Curiosity got the better of me, but at least this "Environments" trailer is abstract ...

SOMA is close to being content complete

It's not better down where it's wetter
Aug 24
Frictional Games’ latest release, the underwater horror game SOMA, is nearly content complete. In a post made on its Facebook page, Frictional explained that in the next week, the game will have all of the major co...

Frictional Games' SOMA brings true horror to PS4

Releasing September 22 for PC and PS4
Jun 19
Even though it doesn't seem that long ago, it's been five years since a group of indie developers struck it big with the release of Amnesia: The Dark Descent. The game became a hit with players looking for...

I'm avoiding all SOMA trailers after this

(Yeah, right)
Jun 11
This is the point at which I'm starting to feel like I've seen too much of SOMA, Frictional Games' underwater sci-fi horror title for PC and PlayStation 4. I'd like to avoid any additional footage that comes in between now and launch on, shit, September 22? That's going to be tough. The new video is less straight footage and more of a snappy trailer, but it raises further questions.

SOMA looks like a worthy successor to Amnesia

Releasing this September for PC and PS4
May 29
A series of live-action videos and an alternate-reality game have led to this: 12 minutes of uncut footage from Frictional's next first-person horror title, SOMA. It's coming to PC and PS4 at long last on September 22, 2015....

Mighty strange stuff is afoot in this live-action SOMA video

Time to pack up and go home
May 27
"There's something wrong, isn't there?" Yes, Harry. Something is deeply wrong. I'm staying far away from the alternate-reality game for SOMA. Not because I'm not interested in what Frictional Games is cooking up for its unde...

The SOMA ARG's spilled a new trailer

Those whales are biding their time...
May 26
I've never understood ARGs. Hidden in a bit of code is a link to a server that an art designer for the game’s mother’s dog once owned. Once you’ve cracked that server in all 17 dimensions you’ll final...

SOMA is in beta, but we can't play it (and that's probably for the best)

It's just you and me now, Omnitool
Apr 15
The next spooky game from the team behind Amnesia: The Dark Descent is officially in beta. No, you can't play it yet. Neither can I. But around 40 people are testing a "pretty much" content-complete build of SOMA right now, w...

Frictional says 'sorry for the silence' with a SOMA screenshot

The PS4 / PC beta should be here before long
Feb 25
I'm with Steven -- the ocean, pretty as it is, can also be petrifying. What just brushed against me? The studio behind Penumbra and Amnesia: The Dark Descent is plunging into the depths with SOMA, its next horror title, and t...

SOMA is underwater horror with flashy monsters & average crabs

When you gaze long into the abyss, Ed Harris gazes back
Apr 04
When I see the name SOMA, all capitalized as Amnesia developer Frictional is wont to stylize, I think of my dentist. Because that's its name. And it's not a scary thought. I never had frightening associations with dentistry, ...

Frictional's horror game SOMA has a new setting

'If you dive down any distance you enter into a realm of monsters'
Apr 03
Frictional Games' sci-fi horror title SOMA is seemingly dropping its "sci-fi" theme. (Or is it?) As revealed in a blog post written by creative director Thomas Grip, the secret is out: "our next game will be set deep below t...

Check out this new trailer for SOMA, a PS4 survivor horror game

Mar 05
It's been a while since we've heard of SOMA (for PC and PS4), but Sony has posted an update on the game on their blog, and a new trailer. From the creators of Amnesia: The Dark Descent, it's set to drop in 2015, and it'...

Frictional lets imaginations run wild in this SOMA video

A look at where the bad things will take place
Dec 12
Its just over a minute of in-engine footage, but it's SOMA footage nonetheless. This is the new sci-fi horror title from Frictional Games, makers of Amnesia: The Dark Descent, in case you missed those teasers. The video itse...

We should be excited and terrified to play SOMA

More first-person horror from Frictional Games
Oct 11
Amnesia creator Frictional Games knows horror, I think we can all agree. There have been some intriguing videos about the team's next project, SOMA, to help set the sci-fi mood. Now we have the mother of all teaser trailers ...
