Frictional's horror game SOMA has a new setting

'If you dive down any distance you enter into a realm of monsters'

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 the water’s surface -- at the bottom of the sea."

If you're skeptical about the decision, just watch this excellent trailer. I found it to be more unsettling than what was shown in prior videos, personally. Question is, will SOMA still partially take place in space, or has that setting -- that development work -- been done away with altogether? We'll find out next year when the game releases for PC and PlayStation 4.

"The ocean is an alien world, and we've only scratched the surface," said Grip. "We feel it's the perfect place to explore in a horror game."
