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!

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 :)

i'm starting to loose track here ... so many titles have been announced for the ps4 so far

abzdine1892d ago (Edited 1892d ago )

and one more exclusive on next gen consoles, ONE MORE! not even PS2 had this much love a month before release!

abc12331892d ago

What was that? Did someone say that the Xbone has a better line-up?

pyramidshead1892d ago

Hopefully we'll see a lot more PC only games making their way to the PS4.

black0o1892d ago

^^ 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

thrust1892d ago

@abc one word titanfall!

hehe :P

Xsilver1892d ago (Edited 1892d ago )

@trust Titanfall vs http://farm4.staticflickr.c... yeah ok buddy.

thrust1892d ago

Xsilver,4 words.

titanfall all day long!

MazzingerZ1892d ago (Edited 1892d ago )

PS2 dev times + Power = The comback of the PS2!

FamilyGuy1892d ago (Edited 1892d ago )

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.

Titanfall: better on PC.

@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.

thrust1892d ago

Am really looking forward to destiny and the division

ZHZ901892d ago

You forgot Evil Within.

Zeal0t1892d ago

OMG you're right!!!! The 20min gameplay video at Gamescom was pure horror! I bury my head in shame :D

FamilyGuy1892d ago

That one is one of the most exciting I've see so far too. Survival horror revival incoming.

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.

ThatEnglishDude1892d ago (Edited 1892d 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!

Inception1892d ago

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.

Pintheshadows1892d 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.

Sokol1892d 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..

chrissx1892d ago

Sony keep spoiling their customers with great exclusives.Here's another. Ps4 is where its at

Moncole1892d ago (Edited 1892d ago )

Its also coming to PC so its no an exclusive.
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.

Salooh1892d ago

Ok , i will accept that if you apply your talk on titanfall :) .

Moncole1891d 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
