Sci-fi horror SOMA coming to PS4, from the creators of Amnesia: The Dark Descent

Hi, I am Thomas Grip, creative director at Frictional Games, an indie studio based in Sweden. We have been crafting horror games since 2006 and are probably most famous for having created Amnesia: The Dark Descent. Previously, we have only developed for PC, but this time our new title will be released for PS4 as well! (Frictional Games, Indie, PS4, Soma)

Yes!!! Exactly what i was hoping for. So many great Horror games coming to the PS4. Outlast, Daylight, SOMA and eventually Routine as stated by the devs. Scary times ahead, can't wait :)

What was that? Did someone say that the Xbone has a better line-up?
pyramidshead  +   572d ago
Hopefully we'll see a lot more PC only games making their way to the PS4.

^^ with cross-plat MP features

Better 'launch line up' abc, Ps4 clearly has the superior line up. I haven't seen anyone arguing Xbox has a better line up overall. The only thing is Titanfall, nothing really interesting on the X1 within 6 months of the release, whereas PS4 has many within the first 6 months

This easy to port thing is becoming a huge deal already. Matched with self-publishing and I can see just about every noteworthy PC game heading to the PS4 if the devs have the money, time and motivation to do it.

The list of games is already huge and grows longer every couple days.

Edit: Oh wow, just noticed the reasonable statement made by Irishguy, there may be hope for you yet. Titanfall looks great but that 1 game can't sell me on a $500 system. MS did a good job in finding that one first and snatching up exclusivity, whether it be timed or not they got there first and planted a flag.

@Thrust

Titanfall: better on PC.
nosferatuzodd  +   572d ago
indeed
Zeal0t  +   572d ago
@thrust I spend a fair amount of time with Titanfall at Gamescom and the game is indeed a fun competitive online shooter but that's about it. I will get it on Xbox one but it's not as impressive as Destiny, The Division or Infamous SS.
thrust  +   571d ago
Am really looking forward to destiny and the division
ZHZ90  +   572d ago
You forgot Evil Within.
Zeal0t  +   571d ago
OMG you're right!!!! The 20min gameplay video at Gamescom was pure horror! I bury my head in shame :D
FamilyGuy  +   571d ago
That one is one of the most exciting I've see so far too. Survival horror revival incoming.
abc1233  +   572d ago
Want to be frightened to the point of going into the foetal position and locking yourself in your room for several days? PS4 has you covered.
ThatEnglishDude  +   572d ago
I'm *loving* the HR Giger look of things from 2 minutes on. The skeletal looking pipes, the machinery, I get a real 'Alien' vibe from this. Fuckin' ave it!

Cannot wait!

Exactly! Damn, why SEGA not hired Frictional Games to make Alien games, instead giving it to that swindler named Randy Pitchfork :(

OT, man, as a survival horror fans, it's like i'm in heaven right now. I hope Sony / Keiichiro Toyama make a new Siren after he finished with Gravity Rush 2.
Pintheshadows  +   572d ago
A new Siren would be amazing but I hope it isn't episodic this time as if anything downloading the episodes really bothered me. I liked the actual game but I didn't see the point of it being episodic even with the way it was structured.

Both western and eastern devs seem to be having a horror revival. What with Outlast and the upcoming Evil Within. Good times. Some of the smaller indie titles are good as well.

I want to see more of the procedurally generated horror title that is on PS4 but I can't remember the name off the top of my head.

Hopefully Capcom will realise this and entirely reboot Resident Evil. And I mean entirely.
Sokol  +   572d ago
I love the return of horror and survival horror game genres.

I truly missed it, I have had enough of FPS in the last 7 years..
chrissx  +   572d ago
Sony keep spoiling their customers with great exclusives.Here's another. Ps4 is where its at
Moncole  +   572d ago
Its also coming to PC so its no an exclusive. http://frictionalgames.blog...
They never said it won't release on other sysyems so it will probably also go to X1 and Wii U. Indie devs don't do exlusives because they need as much people to buy their game so they can make money.

Salty!
Salooh  +   571d ago
Ok , i will accept that if you apply your talk on titanfall :) .
Moncole  +   571d ago
I nver said Titanfall is an exclusive. Seeing how its on three systems it can't be.

I find it funny how my comment got disagrees for stating a fact. Kieep it classy, fanboys
Xsilver  +   572d ago
Dammit Sony can my wallet breed.
nosferatuzodd  +   572d ago
lol
Sevir  +   572d ago
I hope your wallet could breed! Lol because that would mean mine could as well and I would get more money from wallet breeding! Lol. ^^
boeso  +   572d ago
games games games!
EverydayGuy  +   572d ago
Now all we need is the revival of JRPG's like: Legend of the Dragoon, Chrono Cross, Grandia, Vagrant Story, Xenogears etc.
maddskull  +   572d ago
it is true that every week a new game for the ps4 in revealed
Pintheshadows  +   572d ago
Excellent. Sci Fi horror is fantastic and my girlfriend should enjoy this as well as she wasn't too impressed with A Machine for Pigs (I quite liked it) and much preferred Outlast as a horror title as did I.
shahab91  +   572d ago
Nice. =)
Harpers_Ferry  +   571d ago
As much as I love this horror revival that's been going on, I'm afraid it's going to end like the RE/SH era did, where everything becomes too samey. While I love Frictional Games work, it feels like too many others are trying to duplicate that experience, rather than really going their own route. In any case, SOMA looks excellent so far, even if the environments are all very familiar. I can't wait.

I'd also like to see other developers try to solve the combat in horror problem, rather than avoid it entirely.

yes!!!
