Unknown Worlds has brought their underwater exploration/survival title, Subnautica onto Playstation 4 and Xbox One today, for 29.99. Optimized and enhanced for console by Panic Button, it also has a physical release, thanks to a partnership with Gearbox Publishing. The underwater world of Subnautica is breathtaking, but also dangerous, as the player has crash landed onto a mysterious, water-covered planet. Important resources lurk beneath the water, as do terrifying creatures that are not to be trifled with. Players can catalog alien life, craft equipment to survive, and build their own underwater base of operations.
Dive into a Vast Underwater World
- After crash landing on an uncharted world, players navigate a wide array of ocean biomes in search of answers. From sun-drenched coral reefs to deep-sea trenches, the surroundings and lifeforms change as explorers descend deeper – posing new threats.
Scavenge, Craft and Survive
- The adventure begins in an emergency Life Pod, where players must immediately find water, food and resources, then venture forth to discover blueprints and materials for more advanced equipment to increase their chances of survival.
Construct Underwater Habitats
- Survivors choose from a number of modules and components to build a custom underwater base, adding furnishings, vehicle bays, observatory chambers and more. As players dive deeper, pressure increases, so they must manage the strength of their base hull to stay safe.
Unravel the Mystery
- Never-before-seen architecture, a mysterious disease affecting sea life and secrets await in the deep. The game’s story tasks players with discovering the truth behind their crash landing and seeking the means to escape the planet alive.
Play Your Way
- Subnautica allows players to explore the ocean and manage health, hunger and hydration in Survival mode; endure the pressure of only ONE life and no O2 alerts in Hardcore mode; or unleash their inner visionary in Creative mode – which allows them freedom to explore the ocean and build bases with no health upkeep or resource costs.
