Gamersyde Preview: SOMA

The guys at Frictional Games were kind enough to send us a preview build of SOMA, whose release is still planned for September 22. After a few hours in their new hellish world, we can offer you a few gameplay videos and our first impressions about the game in audio form.
Note: The extracts we used for the video preview are the same as the direct feed footage you'll find below.

Very good preview. I hope to see many more like these for future games. I'll definitely be getting this game on Steam.

Man. Gonna be a busy month. With until dawn, mad max, mgsv and this I'm not sure I'll even have time for fallout 4 or the other games that come later this year.

I am not sold this. Aesthetically I don't find it that interesting & the game play looks like it might be kind of boring.

Gonna be interesting to see if they manage to make the robots as creepy as the noises and glimpses of silhouettes of Amnesia. But then, i suppose Frictional has always focused on storytelling and atmosphere. This looks like it'll hopefully deliver on that :)

Will this be retail?

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX It's always produced really good visuals (still does), but I'm not sure if it was ever efficient. Unreal has always seemed more well rounded. (31 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @asdfg: Id too. But was Cryengine ever actually good? (33 minutes ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @asdfg: But it ran like shit when Crysis 3 was released. That was with the latest version at that time. (35 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @KORNdog: Yeah, source material would be to blame for that, but I'm sure if DICE were allowed creative licence, they could invent new stuff to make it work. (1 Hour ago)
  • asdfg
    asdfg Hence why it runs like shit these days. (1 Hour ago)
  • asdfg
    asdfg @droezelke: someone on Reddit wrote that alot of the key people working on cryengine had gone to the star citizen dev. Don't know how much truth is in that statement though. (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @MrWhite: that would be quite cool as a themed map pack or something for a future based BF game. but not sure it would have enough variety for a full game. (2 Hours ago)
