Amnesia And Penumbra Creators Tease More Of Upcoming Horror Title Soma

By Eugene . March 5, 2014 . 4:03pm


Frictional Games, the creators behind Amnesia: The Dark Descent and Penumbra have shared a new trailer for their next horror title, Soma. The new trailer, Theta, gives us a little bit of insight into the twisted futuristic realm we’re in at Pathos-2’s remote research facility.


It seems that the station has been cut off from communications and weird, freaky things are going down (because that’s what happens in horror games). Freaky in a bad way—the machines seem to have begun taking on human traits… which the gameplay teaser on its main website suggests quite handily with the strange “research” going on.


Alien constructions have begun popping up in the installation, and apparently the only way out is to “do something unimaginable”. Which sounds a little bit like suicide, if the new trailer is anything to go by. You can view more of the trailers over at the developer’s YouTube page.


Soma is planned for release on PC and PlayStation 4 in 2015.

    I have high expectations for this one, considering Amnesia is the scariest game I’ve ever played,

    “Looks like a certain Youtube user will gain a crap-ton subscribers after this releases -.-.

    I really liked A Machine for Pigs better than the original Amnesia. The plot was BRILLIANT; its story-telling and writting were pure gold; characters were likeable, too. IMO It beats The Outlast (Which I loved from start to end) in every way except for the lack of an eerie atmosphere and jump scares. Totally understandable, as it was developed by another developer team (The Chinese Room). But they gave strong emphasis to the story, and it was worth it.

    Totally hyped for this! So ready for more hopeless horror games while we wait for The Evil WIthin to reach gold status, for the sake of the Survival Horror genre, which I hope… it will put things straight.”

    I really admire Frictional. They could have coasted and done another dark fantasy horror piece, instead, they turn around and gift us with an under-utilized aspect of the genre… SF horror.

  • I’ve loved what Frictional have put out so far. I am looking forward to this title and how it plays out!
