Subnautica has been a very popular game in early access with overwhelmingly positive reviews of the game over the years. Developed by Unknown Worlds Entertainment, users get to swim through the vast open world under the ocean and explore a variety of creatures.
Today, Unknown Worlds Entertainment has released the full version of Subnautica and is available in VR for the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. While Subnautica has been available in VR, this is the first time you get to play through the full release version.
In Subnautica you crash-land on alien ocean world where 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. Users will have to 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.
You’ll be able to craft equipment, pilot submarines and out-smart wildlife to explore lush coral reefs, volcanoes, cave systems, and more. And while it may seem safe at first, you’ll quickly realize how dangerous this world becomes. Your main goal in Subnautica will be about survival and finding safety for yourself.
What makes Subnautica stand out so much from today’s open world RPG games is that you’re confined in the water and must battle the elements and creatures rather than a horde of zombies or evil looking monsters who can speak your language. Rather, the story is driven with survival instincts in mind and lets you enjoy an original game.
Subnautica is available today on Steam for $22.49 as a special thank you with a discount. The original MSRP is $24.99. You can download the game for the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive as well. We will be doing a livestream and review so stay tuned.
