Update: SOMA’s Safe Mode has been added to the PS4 version of the game.
Announced on Twitter, Safe Mode is now available on the Xbox One, PS4, Steam and GoG versions of the game. The Humble Bundle version is now the only one without Safe Mode – although it will be added if linked to a Steam account.
For an explanation of how Safe Mode works in action, we’ve got you covered.
Developer Frictional Games is bringing its horror game SOMA to Xbox One early next month on December 1.
SOMA originally released for PlayStation 4 and PC in October 2015 and it’s now finally getting an Xbox One port. Additionally, the game is also receiving a new “Safe Mode,” which is an optional way to play SOMA without having to worry about evading hostile enemies, letting you enjoy the story.
“Safe Mode” will also launch on the PC version of the game on December 1, with the update coming sometime later on PS4. Check out the Xbox One teaser for the game below.
SOMA takes place on an underwater remote research facility called PATHOS-II. Protagonist Simon Jarrett mysteriously finds himself in the facility and must uncover the secrets behind PATHOS-II and why he was brought there.
Be sure to read IGN’s review of the game, which we scored an 8.1 and called “smart and scary science fiction.”
