New Soma Video Puts The Environments On Display

The latest video showcasing Soma, the next title from Amnesia: The Dark Descent developers Frictional Games, showcases some of the game's environments.

There's no gameplay to speak of (though you can see some by heading here), and instead just shows off some of the game's very dark, very creepy environments.

We're still unclear on exactly what Soma is about, but a detailed post accompanying the video on Frictional Games' website details how important story is to every facet of the game. We do know it will follow a science-fiction plot taking place in space, and early indications point to it being scary.

For more on the game, you can check a pair of live-action videos setting up the story here and here.

  • Can't wait! I loved the Dark Descent!

  • The name of this game always reminds me of the drug people use in Huxley's "Brave New World"
  • this game looks so amazing. i hope this gen brings about the death of the military fps game.
  • Game is shaping up to be good, I am jealous pf pc gamers with all the good horror games they get.

  • Loving what im seeing.  I wish somebody made a pure HR Giger game similar to this.

  • This is looking so awesome.

  • Looks pretty cool. I don't get the scary vibe, but I think that's more of an atmosphere thing. As far as I know, there's nothing to fear, so it's just a run-down area. You tell me there's something coming after me, and hell yeah it's scary looking.
