SOMA release date set, 12-minute gameplay trailer

Sci-fi first-person horror game arrives late September.

SOMA

SOMA, Amnesia developer Frictional Games’ new first-person sci-fi horror game, will launch for PlayStation 4 and PC on September 22, the developer announced.

A new 12-minute gameplay trailer was also released.

Here’s a synopsis of the game’s story:

The radio has gone silent on PATHOS-2. As isolation bears down on the staff of the remote research facility, strange things are happening.

Machines are taking on human traits and alien constructions have started to interfere with routine. The world around them is turning into a nightmare.

The only way out is to do something unimaginable.

Get the trailer and some notes below.

1) When the video starts we are about 1 hour into the game.

2) The protagonist is not an amnesiac. He has an established past, knows who he is, but isn’t at all sure about the situation he’s in.

3) There are lots more things to explore in this level than what’s shown in the video. For instance, you can avoid the robot attack completely by acting differently.

Thanks, NeoGAF.
