The New SOMA Trailer is Unsettling
SOMA, the upcoming first-person horror title from Frictional Games, seems to get scarier with every new trailer and tidbit of information revealed about the game.
In the latest trailer for the strange horror title, viewers are given a look into the unsettling underwater world of SOMA and the PATHOS-2 research lab. While this may sound like standard horror fare and well-worn ground for the Amnesia developers, the narration of the SOMA trailer is what really creates for the lingering sense of dread that permeates throughout the trailer.
“You know what sucks about dying?” Asks the disembodied narrator in the trailer’s first shot. There’s something about the surety in his voice, the almost sing-song nature of the following sentences. It screams atmospheric horror.
SOMA is set to release later this year for the PlayStation 4 and PC.
