The sci-fi oceanic survival adventure game Subnautica: Below Zero is releasing for PC and consoles on May 14, and as someone who has painstakingly waited out the Early Access version, I am stoked.
Bandai Namco Entertainment Europe posted a release date trailer highlighting the physical editions.
Subnautica is not just one of the best story-centric survival games out there, it’s among my favorite games, period. It’s the survival game for people who don’t (or think they don’t) care for survival games. You don’t necessarily need to have played the first before going into Below Zero – it’s a standalone, not an expansion – although the new game does take place in the arctic region of the same planet.
Beyond Steam and the Epic Games Store, you’ll be able to play Below Zero for $30 on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and Nintendo Switch. The latter platform is also getting a $60 two-game bundle.
I’m curious to finally experience the game’s more character-driven story and face my fears in the depths again. Accidentally discovering funky-looking biomes, mentally plotting them out, and pushing my diver to their limits to explore deeper and deeper were true highlights of Subnautica for me. Below Zero isn’t going to feel as novel as its predecessor, there’s just no way it can, but I’m still super excited.
I’ll probably play on PC or PS5 to avoid texture pop in. I need to feel immersed!
