SOMA Enters Beta Stage, “Complete Content-Wise”
“The time when SOMA is finally out is really close now.”
Amnesia: The Dark Descent developer Frictional Games has entered the beta stage with its latest horror title SOMA, and it’s inching closer and closer to commercial release.
Studio co-lead Thomas Grip reported on the Frictional Games blog that, “This is a huge thing for us and easily the biggest milestone prior to the actual release of the game.
“We now have a build of SOMA that contains all of our desired features. There are still a few bits of art, a few sounds etc. missing, but the game is pretty much complete content-wise.”
There won’t be any major overhauls at this point and right now, Frictional is prioritizing its development responsibilities en route to release.
“What’s left is to make sure that what’s there is as good as it possibly can be. Adding effects, improving the art, ensuring stability, making it more intuitive and so on.
“The time when SOMA is finally out is really close now, though, and we’ll let you all know a date in the near future.”
SOMA will be out on PC and PS4 this year.
