SOMA to Haunt Xbox One


One of the best horror titles on the PS4 is finally making the jump to Xbox One and that spells good news for gamers who don’t have Sony’s much heralded video game giant. No other details are being announced at this time, but keep your ears open in the coming months for further details including a release date.

In SOMA (review), you find yourself in a desperate struggle for survival after an underwater research expedition unearths more than was bargained for.

Creative director Thomas Grip of developer Frictional Games is thrilled that, after years of hard work, the game can now finally be experienced by everyone:

“Five years ago, SOMA started as a simple idea: to make a game that would explore the more disturbing aspects of what it means to be a conscious being. Since then, we have gone through years of iterations, lots of hard work and almost tripled the size of our team. And finally, today, the game is done. We are very proud of how it has turned out and feel that we have achieved what we set out to do. It has easily been the most ambitious project we have undertaken, and getting to this point has been quite a struggle. We hope people find SOMA to be a creepy and provocative experience that stays with them long after playing.”

SOMA is a sci-fi horror game from Frictional Games, the creators of Amnesia: The Dark Descent. It is an unsettling story about identity, consciousness, and what it means to be human.

The radio is dead, food is running out, and the machines have started to think they are people. Underwater facility PATHOS-II has suffered an intolerable isolation, and we’re going to have to make some tough decisions. What can be done? What makes sense? What is left to fight for?

Enter the world of SOMA and face horrors buried deep beneath the ocean waves. Delve through locked terminals and secret documents to uncover the truth behind the chaos. Seek out the last remaining inhabitants and take part in the events that will ultimately shape the fate of the station. But be careful; danger lurks in every corner: corrupted humans, twisted creatures, insane robots, and even an inscrutable omnipresent A.I.

You will need to figure out how to deal with each one of them. Just remember there’s no fighting back; either you outsmart your enemies ,or you get ready to run.
