Subnautica leaves early access this month

Subnautica appeared on Steam in December 2014 and it ticked a lot of boxes for many players. Aliens, survival, massive underwater areas and more make Subnautica a survival game that is different enough from its peers that it stood out. The game is finally hitting version 1.0 on January 23.

The launch will have a live-streamed event from an aquarium in Monterey Bay. Unknown Worlds will debut the games’ cinematic trailer, chat with the developers and show off some real sea life before hitting the “Big Red Launch Button”.

Subnautica is easily one of my most played early access titles and each time I saw a new patch arrive I got excited to go back and see how the game had improved and what had been added. Plumbing the depths of the ocean and learning how to survive in a world that seems to be covered by water is a rewarding experience as you manage hunger, thirst and your oxygen supply and the maximum depth you can safely operate at. It hasn’t helped my fear of jumping into the ocean where it is miles deep because you should see the monsters that are lurking in there.

If it has the letters RPG in it, I am there. Still battling with balancing trying to play every single game that grabs my interest, getting 100% in a JRPG, and devoting time to my second home in Azeroth.

    Ahh man I’ve had this game for ages, and have been waiting to play it when it comes out of early access. Couldn’t resist any more recently and jumped in to the game. It does just suck you in without realising it. “Just a few more minutes, I nearly have enough to build this”, “Just a bit deeper, I’m nearly there!”

      Yeah I have hopped in a few times after big updates to see what is what. Come back up for air HOURS later.

    • Happens to me every single time they bring out a patch.

    good year for games leaving early access PUBG, this and hopefully the forest should join them later this year

    • Too bad PUBG did not stay in ea a bit longer. Now they have no excuses for their terrible netcode. 😛
