'Subnautica' (ALL) Coming To Xbox One, Early Access Available

Subnautica is an open world underwater exploration and construction game, combining elements of role playing, sandbox, exploration and cinematic games to create a unique experience.

Descend into the depths of an alien underwater world filled with resources, creatures, wonder and threats. Craft equipment and submarines to explore lush coral reefs, volcanoes, cave systems, and more – All while trying to survive in the open-world, underwater adventure game Subnautica.

After crash landing on an alien ocean world, the only way to go is down. Subnautica's oceans range from sun drenched shallow coral reefs to treacherous deep-sea trenches. 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.

After waking up 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.

This is Unknown Worlds Entertainment’s first console game, having previously released all titles on the PC gaming platform, Steam. Subnautica is now available as an Xbox One Game Preview, available to all Xbox One owners through their dashboards. Xbox One Game Previews offer players the opportunity to play select upcoming games in an early development state.

Subnautica on Xbox One will follow the same development path as the Steam Early Access release of the game on PC. Subnautica on Xbox One launches with content up to and including the  H.2O Update, a recent update to the Steam counterpart featuring stunning underwater graphics upgrades.

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.

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.

As the sun goes down, the predators come out. The ocean is unforgiving of those caught unawares 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.

The Subnautica sea-floor is presented using a dynamic voxel terrain system. Dig caves to hide, store loot, or short-circuit cave systems. Impacts from vehicles, or even exploding creatures, will change the way the world looks.

Cave systems wind below the sea bed, from dark claustrophobic passages to caverns lit by bio-luminescent life. Explore the world below the ocean floor, but watch your oxygen levels, and take care to avoid the threats lurking in the darkness.
