The survival horror genre experienced a slump of sorts last gen, with classic IPs struggling to find their footing on the newly released consoles. Standout newcomers to the genre were few and far between, and on PC, it was a similar case. That was until Amnesia: The Dark Descent released.

With that, Frictional Games has a lot to live up to with their first new game since The Dark Descent. Having their most successful title looming over their head and A Machine For Pigs as a fickle reminder of how unreceptive fans may be to change, will SOMA be the next champion in the genre?
