Frictional Games has unveiled what was behind the teasers of SOMA. As expected, the project is a sci-fi survival horror game. It is set in a research facility called PATHOS-2 where strange things start to happen, machines behave abnormally and dangerously. Almost no way out and no weapons. A bit more details, screens and gameplay teaser inside. The title is coming in 2015 on PC and PlaySation 4.
October 11, 2013 - Strange occurrences are disrupting the routines of the PATHOS-2 research facility. The radio is silent. Behavioral anomalies of the machines are increasingly dangerous, if not... malevolent. The facility is devolving into chaos. No weapons, and the only escape is practically unthinkable.
From Frictional Games, creators of the groundbreaking Amnesia and Penumbra series, SOMA is an aberrant tale of scientific inquiry and survival; an entropic exploration of synapse and circuit that wades through the delusions of human consciousness.
Three years in the making, SOMA is a unique continuation of Frictional Games' signature style of explorative horror, provocative storytelling, and unfathomable tension, free of distractive cut-scenes and combat. SOMA is coming to PC and PlayStation 4 in 2015.
@Moonwalker: they don't sell on the west in any platform either. not in any sales that are meaningfull for the publisher just for the small niche dev. it's just that localizing is a effortless job (1 Hour ago)
@KORNdog: it's a shame though. 360 had a lot of these games but they are all gone now. I guess they don't only not sell on Japan, neither in the West too. (7 Hours ago)
@Moonwalker: unless he takes a few truck loads of cash with him...no. (8 Hours ago)
