SOMA gameplay and release date

The sci-fi horror title SOMA will hit PC and PS4 on September 22nd. Get a taste of what's happening in PATHOS-2 with the gameplay inside along with new screenshots.

I really hope this becomes more mechanically interesting than what's been shown so far, cause it still seems like another Amnesia game with a sci fi setting. The themes of consciousness and story sound more interesting, like the robots thinking they're human.

I needs it. Looks great. And the premis is actually interesting for a change.

Still looks kind of boring to me. Interesting, but boring.

Surely that's an oxymoron?

Actually looks really amazing. Couldn't get into Amnesia really but I love this psycho sci-fi setting.

I just mean that the A.I. stuff is interesting, but the game play looks kind of boring. I mean it doesn't look bad, I just don't think I care enough to play it.

Love it! This and MGS are a must buy for me! I think ADR1FT is promesing too.

About the game


What's up?

    b0vril I find the direction that military shooters go with a sci-fi setting is a bit boring. Not really into mech stuff. But they could do something a more "punk" sci-fi. (3 minutes ago)
  • rayy
    rayy I want futuristic BF. The last BF4 DLC has a lot of BF2142 hints. (15 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog but that runs the risk of it feeling too much like battlefront maybe? but at least it would be their own world and creations. (24 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i'm kinda hoping for something more futuristic. something a bit more creative. mechs instead of tanks, hover bikes, jet packs etc. (25 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @b0vril: my worry with modern is that it could feel too similar to BF3/4. i mean i want whatever they do to feel like those games but i would like something to separate them thematically at least. (29 minutes ago)
  • b0vril
    b0vril @GriftGFX: should they go back to a more modern era, or does that matter? (40 minutes ago)
