We should be excited and terrified to play SOMA


More first-person horror from Frictional Games

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 to make the wait for 2015 absolutely painful.

What has me most excited about SOMA is that it's a different kind of horror -- one that I'm super interested to see Frictional tackle. This is coming to PC and PlayStation 4 and will feature no combat or cutscenes. Love to hear that confirmed so early on, although, it only seems early to us; the game's been in development for three years now.

Best of all, what's shown here isn't going to ruin anything. The footage comes from a custom-made level "meant to show off the general feel and tone of the game," not an exact segment of SOMA that we'll get to experience ourselves. For that matter, the character showcased isn't even the protagonist. Frictional knows what's up. This is how you promote your game.
