Frictional Games updates its teaser website, Reveals SOMA, Possibly for PlayStation 4

Frictional Games teaser website with a countdown updates to reveal SOMA: Partial System Reconstruction. The game looks like it will be sci-fi based and seeing that it is coming from Amnesia’s developer, we can assume that it will a sci-fi horror game. Sony PlayStation Europe’s twitter account also tweeted about the site which leads us to believe that Frictional Games might be working with Sony for an exclusive game for the PlayStation brand, possibly and more likely to be PlayStation 4.

Upon arriving on the site, we can see a graphical unit displaying a message numbered #2656 and titled Vivarium. Following is the description from that message:

The machine has the appearance of a heavily modified monitor fixed to a massive nest of cables and controls. Machinist Peter Strasky found the contraption during a salvage mission the screen rolled and flickered, but it shut down as it was pulled out from the container.

None of the crew stepped forward to take credit, but the construction suggests since Thabo is unavailable for questioning, the machine’s origin remains a mystery.

Considering the lack of information and the general unease it has started to cause, the machine will be disassembled.

screen lit up and showed distorted schematics. After trying different switches and keys, the oblique levers were found to be torsion attenuation controls which could stabilize the pict revealing a complex set of instructions. The machine is now under quarantine.

AM Engineer Imogen Reed has asked for an exception Special permission granted.


We can also see a video attached at the bottom which is a video documentation from an engineer named Reed.

Taking place in a futuristic setting, from what looks like it a research team stumbled upon something during a salvage mission. From what looks like a giant CRT monitor with big cables sticking out of it. Engineer Reed then proceeds to figure out how to run the machine and successfully manages to switch it on. She then proceeds to type something on the input terminal to get a response from the machine. Later on, the screen on the machine switches to black and then displays from what appears to the be the same room Engineer Reed is in but with a disturbing image of Reed falling down on the floor. The video documentation cuts to static afterwards.

Stay tuned as we bring you the news with more information.
