If you’re planning to play Soma [official site], the new terrible dreadful horror game from Amnesia creators Frictional Games, probably don’t watch this new trailer. It shows a lot of the nasties you’ll encounter in that dreadful seabase, and removes some of the power they’ll hold over you if you encounter for the first time in-game.
If, like me, you are fascinated by the terrible things clearly afoot in Soma but know you’re a colossal babby about horror games (despite being tough as nails and sharper than knives in every other respect, of course) and will probably never play much of it, hey, this trailer is pretty cool.
The game’s launching later this month, so you don’t have much longer to wait. If you’re planning to play at launch, go on, just wait a bit, don’t watch this. It’ll be out for Windows, Mac, and Linux on September 22nd, sold through Steam and GOG.
For my fellow babbies (but not spoiler-avoiding folks), you might also want to check out Adam’s impressions based on the first third of the game, and this recent trailer showing a few environments I have no intention of ever entering:
