When this generation started, many smaller developers flocked to PlayStation 4 and many of their titles launched exclusively for the platform. However, as Microsoft is making waves in the console space recently, it seems like many of them are coming to the [email protected] program. The latest one which will probably show up soon is SOMA. SOMA is an absolute masterpiece and it’s great that it’s finally coming to Xbox One.
According to a listing spotted on PEGI, the European game ratings agency, SOMA is coming to Xbox One. It’s rating is a little high but that’s not a surprise given its content. For those who don’t know, SOMA is a science fiction horror game from Frictional Games, the creators of Amnesia: The Dark Descent. It is an unsettling story about identity, consciousness, and what it means to be human.
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.
