GSY Review PS4 Xbox One PC

It took SOMA two years to reach the shore of Microsoft's console, but it is now available and you should definitely check it out if you haven't already. We have captured 2 videos on Xbox One X and pasted our original review inside (with a few updates to it). We've also the commented video we had prepared back in September 2015 if you're interested.

Trailer Xbox One

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.

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.

After a pretty optimistic preview, we were really looking forward to playing the final version of SOMA, the new adventure/horror game by Frictional Games. After completing it last week, we can now explain why this story-driven title which hasn't forgotten that it's also a game is worth checking out. The full review, the gameplay videos and a nice little "you know" bonus await you inside, and everything we have for you is 100% spoiler free.

Before the game's release on September 22nd for PC and PS4 and our impressions the day before, here is a new story trailer of SOMA as well as new screenshots. If you already know you're going to buy it, then we can only advise you to just wait for its release as you would want to discover as much as you can by yourself. Frictional Games has also updated its blog to talk about sound design.
