Unknown Worlds Subnautica is one of those early access games that has been in testing for ages. The game first appeared back in 2014 and it promised an underwater take on the survival genre.
The developers have now finally set a release date for v1.0 which will release on 23 January. A special launch livestream will also be held on launch day coming live from the Monterey Bay Aquarium. The event will take place on the Subnautica Twitch channel and it will also appear on Youtube. Viewers can expect a premiere of the cinematic trailer, interviews and more.
Subnautica is an open world, underwater exploration and adventure game currently under construction at Unknown Worlds.
You have crash-landed on alien ocean world, and the only way to go is down. Subnautica’s oceans range from sun drenched shallow coral reefs to treacherous deep-sea trenches, lava fields, and bio-luminescent underwater rivers. Manage your oxygen supply as you explore kelp forests, plateaus, reefs, and winding cave systems. The water teems with life: Some of it helpful, much of it harmful.
After crash landing in your Life Pod, the clock is ticking to find water, food, and to develop the equipment you need to explore. Collect resources from the ocean around you. Craft knives, lights, diving gear, and personal water craft. Venture deeper and further form to find rarer resources, allowing you to craft more advanced items.
