Already available on PC and Xbox One, SOMA’s so-called Safe Mode has finally come to the PlayStation 4 as well. Now, the important thing to note is that Safe Mode doesn’t actually remove the monsters from the game – what it does is prevent them from being able to kill you.

SOMA is the 2015 first-person horror adventure from Frictional Games, the team behind the Penumbra series and Amnesia: Dark Descent. In the game, you explore a mysterious underwater complex where something has clearly gone terribly wrong.

In my personal opinion, monsters in horror games like this become terrifying precisely because the player realizes just how much of a threat they pose – that getting caught by them will have severe consequences. For those that just want to enjoy SOMA for its storyline, though, Safe Mode is certainly an option to consider.
