Recently downloaded Subnautica as its free on the Epic Games store to download and keep if you download it by Christmas Day. I havent actually played it yet but heard loads of good things about it (also 97% overwhelming positive rating on Steam) so grab it while you have the chance if you are interested.​


PC Gamer posted this morning about a co-op mod thats in the works for it as well as a big new standalone expansion coming known as Below Zeroand thought I would link it here for anyone interested in that too.


Creator of the co-op mod Sunrunner says it's still in "very early stages of development", but the foundation for a full co-op playthrough is there: it has synced player movement, basic animations, base building and item dropping, as well as a rudimentary chat system.

Subnautica's standalone expansion Below Zero enters PC early access January 30th

Below Zero's Steam early access page is now live and reveals that development is expected to last approximately one year. The initial early access build, due on January 30th and also available via Discord and the Epic Games Store, will feature around 1-2 hours of story play-time.

"Starting environments are richly detailed, voice acting is present, and bugs are frequent but often not game-breaking," explains Unknown Worlds, noting that "performance (frame rate) is poor relative to what we want in the finished game."

The developer also confirms that Below Zero's price is expected to increase by around 25% when version 1.0 eventually arrives - it' will cost £15.49/$19.99 USD on all stores during early access.
