SOMA Dev Reveals Sales Statistics and New Accolade Trailer

SOMFace

Frictional Games’ sci-fi horror game SOMA, released just 10 days ago to universal acclaim. The developer saw it fitting to release a brand new trailer celebrating the game’s praise and highlighting some of the terrors that await those who yet to take the plunge. A new blog post reveals many details about the game, including just how well it fared commercially.

After its first week SOMA has sold 92,000 copies across all platforms, compared to one of Frictional’s previous titles Amnesia: The Dark Descent, which sold 30,000 in the first month (around 20,000 the first week).

“The money that we’ve got from this will pretty much pay our company expenses for another 2 years. Sales are still going pretty strongly too, with a total of around 2,000 copies sold per day.”

The studio’s goal for SOMA was for it to reach 100,000 units sold after the first month. It seems they’ll have no trouble achieving it but they’re still far from recouping all of their expenses.

“We need to sell almost 3 times that amount to do that. But given that it took us 5 years to make the project, there’s no immediate stress to do so. One of the great things about funding SOMA 100% ourselves is that all money earned goes into our own pockets and is directly used to fund our upcoming projects. So we are under no pressure to recoup immediately so long as we get enough to keep going – which we certainly have now.”

Check out the accolade trailer below and You can read the blog to learn even more.

 

SOMA is out now for PC and PS4.

Dying Light #4v1 Multiplayer Mode Showcased in 1080P w/ Free Weapon Redeem Code

Dying Light 4v1 PVP RealGamerNewz Techland

Tongue-in-cheek references are made in an intelligent press release by Techland today which went out to video games press explaining that the rise of 4 versus 1 multiplayer gameplay is a very interesting one that has resulted in a positive response within their fan-base. Seemingly as Evolve launches today Techland has found it appropriate to discuss the 4 versus 1 multiplayer mode in Dying Light as an entry into the genre which it and Evolve are both now essentially part of.

For their take on things, they call this asymmetric multiplayer pvp (player versus player). A new video has been put together as well to let players know just what they’re missing if they haven’t managed to try out Dying Light yet. Be sure to read our Dying Light Review as well if you missed that.

Excerpt from the Official Press Release:

“The popularity and response to Dying Light’s PvP mode has been overwhelming at the least. As more and more elite games are using this amazing mechanic, the dev team at Techland put together a quick video to showcase their take on the mode in a visual style that is their salute to the next big titles to join this special group of games.

As a bonus, the trailer features a special code which players can redeem to receive a powerful in-game weapon. The code can be redeemed at Dockets.DyingLightGame.com. Players will then receive a weapon docket that can be exchanged for a top-tier weapon at the Quartermaster within the game itself.”
