Frictional Games's great scifi horror game SOMA is coming to Xbox One on December 1st. Two years after its original release on PC and PS4, the game's arrival on Microsoft console will bring Safe Mode, allowing players to experience the mystery and atmosphere of PATHOS-II without the fear from hostile creatures. An update wil bring this mode to PC at the same date and later on PS4.

Our PS4 videos of SOMA

As you already know if you've taken the time to read our full review, watch our commented gameplay video, or even just listen to the mp3 version to avoid any spoilers, SOMA is really one of our most favorite games in the past few months. It's a very atmospheric title whose main theme is just excellent and it is undeniably Frictional Games' best game to date. We just got our hands on the PS4 version so here are a few videos for you to see how it runs. Aside from some quite surprising slowdowns in the very beginning, the game seems to run at 30 fps most of the time, even in the underwater sections which are a bit more open than the corridors of Pathos II. What is a bit annoying though are the freezes you get every time you reach a checkpoint, giving you the impression that you're playing Half Life² and waiting for the next area to load.
