Two months ago, it was announced (well, noticed) that Frictional Games’ SOMA was headed to the XBox One. Well, it’s confirmed now that the game will be headed to Microsoft’s console for December 1st. And as an added bonus, the game will sport a new feature referred to as “Safe Mode”.
In “Safe Mode”, players will be able to experience the game without the threat of monster attacks. While this might be a bit lame for some players who enjoy the added tension of monsters to the game’s wonderful atmosphere, for those who would rather enjoy this take while they solve puzzles, it’s a welcome addition. And after all, the new mode is entirely optional for players.
PC owners will be receiving the “Safe Mode” update for free once the game launches on the XBox One, while PlayStation 4 owners will be receiving the update at a later date.
