Leave your memories of the world behind and sink into the cold, stark embrace of SOMA, coming September 22nd to PC and PS4.

Watch the SOMA – Environments Trailer

The radio is dead, food is running out, and the machines have started to think they are people. Underwater facility PATHOS-II has suffered an intolerable isolation and we’re going to have to make some tough decisions. What can be done? What makes sense? What is left to fight for?

From Frictional Games, creators of Amnesia: The Dark Descent, SOMA is a sci-fi horror game that questions our concepts of identity, consciousness, and what it means to be human.

Be sure to visit the Frictional Games blog today for an introspective look at SOMA and its creators as the team addresses some of the community's most frequently asked questions.

SOMA is now available for PC pre-order

Coming September 22nd, SOMA is now available for PC pre-order on Steam and GOG.com. Pre-order customers will receive 10% off the normal price of $29.99.

Enter the world of SOMA and face horrors buried deep beneath the ocean waves. Delve through locked terminals and secret documents to uncover the truth behind the chaos. Seek out the last remaining inhabitants and take part in the events that will ultimately shape the fate of the station. But be careful, danger lurks in every corner: corrupted humans, twisted creatures, insane robots, and even an inscrutable omnipresent A.I.

You will need to figure out how to deal with each one of them. Just remember there’s no fighting back; either you outsmart your enemies or you get ready to run.

SOMA Release Date And Gameplay Trailer

After almost five years of blood, sweat and tears we can finally make the following announcement:

SOMA, our upcoming sci-fi horror game, will be released on the 22nd September this fall on PS4 and PC.

And to celebrate that, here are 12 minutes of uncut gameplay footage:

Here are three quick bits of trivia about the video:
1) When the video starts we are about 1 hour into the game.

2) The protagonist is not an amnesiac. He has an established past, knows who he is, but isn't at all sure about the situation he's in.

3) There are lots more things to explore in this level than what's shown in the video. For instance, you can avoid the robot attack completely by acting differently.
That's it for now! We hope you like the footage and we're looking forward hearing what you think about the game after release!
