Sci-Fi Horror Title SOMA Heading To Xbox One “With Optional Safe Mode” (VIDEO)


After Frictional Games gave gamers a terrific scare with Amnesia: The Dark Descent, they decided to keep the flow going with the release of SOMA. A psychological sci-fi horror game that has aimed to make players question their own existence, SOMA blurs the fine line between what is real and what isn’t. The title has been available since September 2015 for PC, OS X, Linux, and PlayStation 4, but not so much for team green. However, a recent teaser released by Microsoft reveals that the spoops are finally coming to Xbox One.

The trailer is relatively short, but offers a good look at what’s to come for Xbox One players. The haunting in-game creatures are certainly present to make one think twice about not playing it with the “optional Safe Mode” (pure story) that will be included. That is, of course, unless players would like to become some monster’s meal. Check out the short clip below:

Since the title arrived over two years ago, gamers have likely already had the chance to have their minds warped by the unnerving tale told in SOMA. However, with the introduction of the Safe Mode, it will surely offer up a different experience to new players and those returning to the depths of the Atlantic Ocean. The game currently holds an “Overwhelmingly Positive” rating through Steam reviews, and here’s why:

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.”

SOMA is currently available on Linux, OS X, PC, PlayStation 4, and will arrive on December 1st for Xbox One. Keep it tuned to Don’t Feed the Gamers as this story develops, and for other horror game news, check out the following:
