SOMA debut trailer released by Frictional Games, out on PC and PS4 in 2015

SOMA, the latest from Amnesia: The Dark Decent developers Frictional Games, has been released.

The firm had released two teasers previously: ‘SOMA: Item #4017 – “Mockingbird” and ‘SOMA Item #2656 – “Vivarium".

According to the game description, strange occurrences are "disrupting the routines of the PATHOS-2 research facility," as the radio has become silent; behavioral anomalies of the machines are increasingly dangerous, "if not... malevolent,"; and the facility is "devolving into chaos".

There are no weapons, and the only escape is "practically unthinkable."

Frictional describes SOMA as an "aberrant tale of scientific inquiry and survival; an entropic exploration of synapse and circuit that wades through the delusions of human consciousness."

The game is slated for PC and PS4 in 2015.

Watch over four minutes of atmospheric horror below.
