Subnautica: Below Zero

The successor to the amazing original game is being released for early access tomorrow. I am excited and nervous at the same time. I still remember getting the original game when it came out of early access and it was very pretty but a mess.

It took almost a year before it was really playable and quite some time to release.

This full standalone game promises a release this year, which sounds promising indeed. I will be watching this game and its comments on steam/reddit every day. I might buy into it from the start, will see what the initial impressions are and the depth of game play.

If I can build my own base with the first iteration then I am in, I love base building and decoration, especially if it is under the sea :wink:


Man I wish this game had co-op…

There is a mod that allows subnautica to be co-op:



The following update was just released for Below Zero:

This update includes the final storyline of the game with fully-voiced dialogue as well as a host of other changes all of which can be viewed here.


The game is getting better and better!

Does this mean the game is almost ready for 1.0 release? I would love to play it but want to wait for the full release first.

I REALLY want to play this iteration, I have played each major release in this game up to now. Something is holding me back though. I am torn between checking this one out or waiting for release.

I love this game.

I did the same with the original Subnautica, that game is amazing.

Loved the original Subnautica and played multiple iterations of the Below Zero early access.

Think I will skip this release and only play it again when it’s fully out to get the complete start-to-finish experience in all it’s glory.


I have decided the same!


The cinematic trailer is now out:

EDIT: Fixed the YT embedding


Thanks maybe I should take a loot at the game again

Thanks for sharing, I really enjoyed that and had a bit of a chuckle.

In case you missed it…


That’s right the full and complete game is now available. There was a launch stream for the release over here:

But if you don’t want to watch all that I think the main highlight of it was the new gameplay trailer:
