SOMA Gameplay Trailer
Frictional Games has released a new ten minute gameplay clip from its upcoming sci-fi horror game SOMA. Set deep beneath the ocean in an underwater research facility, SOMA’s Shock-esque environments look pretty spectacular, as do the encounters with strange mechanical entities that seem to have taken on human identities. I won’t lie, so far it look like familiar stuff – i’ve crawled through my fair share of metallic ventilation shafts in System Shock/Dead Space/Alien: Isolation, but I’m still looking forward to this one. For pure atmospheric spooks, Frictional Games have form, and I feel SOMA is one to watch this year.
SOMA is due to launch 22, September 2015.
