Not Solved SOMA 2015 video support?

Does SOMA 2015 for Mac OSX sold on the Mac App store support integrated Intel video cards unlike their other games. How about listing some more specific system requirements on the Mac App store, please.

Intel HD 4000 cards can barely run the game with the latest drivers.

The game isn't officially supported through Intel Integrated Graphics. If you have another Graphics Card, it's recommended you use that over your Intel card.

The minimum and recommended requirements for SOMA can be found here:

Furthermore, Point 4 from the same page states:
Quote:4) I have an Intel graphics card. Can I get support?

All Intel graphics cards are not officially supported by Frictional Games and thus problems can arise while playing the game with them. Only Intel HD 4000 series or better cards should be able to run the game. To avoid issues, make sure you have the latest Intel drivers installed and lower the settings. Other than that, no more support can be given in case of further problems.

If you have purchased Amnesia: The Dark Descent or Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs in the past, you can view their respective hpl.log files to determine if your version of OpenGL is capable of running SOMA, perhaps at minimal settings.

Running Intel Iris 1536MB on mac pro.

First 3 levels of the game played like a dream. Then I ended up outside the station and now it's tearing, flashing colors and almost impossible to see. Any patches for that?

Is this what you're experiencing? If so, try the fix that was suggested.
