Full Version of Underwater Sandbox-Survival Game Subnautica Now Available

UnknownWorlds Entertainment has fully launched Subnautica, their underwater exploration game with a survival and sandbox focus.

The game’s full release is now available for PC via Steam. Featured above, you can view the game’s launch trailer.

It’s worth mentioning the game has a PlayStation 4 and Xbox One release planned in the future as well.

Here’s a rundown on the game:


Subnautica is an underwater adventure game set on an alien ocean planet. A massive, open world full of wonder and peril awaits you!

Dive Into a Vast Underwater World

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.

Key Features:

  • Scavenge, Craft, and Survive
    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.
  • Construct Underwater Habitats
    Build bases on the sea floor. Choose layouts and components, and manage hull-integrity as depth and pressure increase. Use your base to store resources, park vehicles, and replenish oxygen supplies as you explore the vast ocean.
  • Unravel the Mystery
    What happened to this planet? Signs abound that something is not right. What caused you to crash? What is infecting the sea life? Who built the mysterious structures scattered around the ocean? Can you find a way to make it off the planet alive?
  • Disrupt the Food Chain
    The ocean teems with life: Use the ecosystem to help you. Lure and distract a threatening creature with a fresh fish, or simply swim as fast as you can to avoid gnashing jaws of roaming predators.
  • Handle the Pressure
    Build a Pressure Re-Active Waterproof Nanosuit, or PRAWN Suit, and explore extreme depth and heat. Modify the suit with mining drills, torpedo launchers, propulsion cannons, grappling hooks and more.
  • Fear the Night
    As the sun goes down, the predators come out. The ocean is unforgiving of those caught unprepared in the darkness. Areas that are safe to explore during the day become treacherous at night, but also reveal a beauty that those who hide from the darkness will never see.
  • Dive Below the Ocean Floor
    Cave systems wind below the sea bed, from dark claustrophobic passages to caverns lit by bio-luminescent life and burning-hot lava flows. Explore the world below the ocean floor, but watch your oxygen levels, and take care to avoid the threats lurking in the darkness.

    The prettiest game I can think of where the premise consists of you contracting an alien STD, then trying to escape by building robots from sea trash. If you like walking/survival/crafting simulators and don’t mind the aesthetics this might be your jam.

    The full version still feels like it’s just the tutorial level of something much larger thanks to its absurdly tiny world and (if you optimise the resource grind) 3 hour long story.

    Probably just me though.

    I would much more into this game if it had co-op. Solo survival is just boring.
