SOMA, the scary-looking horror title from Frictional Games, has a new trailer available showing the game running on PlayStation 4.

The darkness enveloping you while you are underwater looks unsettling, and the bottom of the ocean looks to be a hostile environment indeed.

According to Friction Games, the differences in pressure between the surface and “even a modest depth of 100 meters” is enough to turn human into squishy things.

Frictional felt the ocean depths were the “perfect place to explore in a horror game,” and you will be able to experience the isolation yourself when SOMA is released on PC and PS4 in 2015.
