Subnautica to launch on 24 January

Jack Baker 12 January 2018 NEWS


After being in Steam's early access program since 2014, Subnautica will finally arrive late this month.

Subnautica is an extremely well-regarded open world exploration title by Unknown Worlds Entertainment which follows the path of a player who has been stranded after your spaceship, the Aurora, crash landed. From there, you have to explore the world, collect and build to survive the dangerous depths.

The game is scheduled to launch at 1:15pm AEDT on 24 January via a livestream being aired on Facebook, Twitch and YouTube.


During the stream, which will be held at an aquarium in California, a new cinematic trailer will premiere, pushing "The Big Red Launch Button", interviewing the development team and seeing sea-creatures.

The development team working on Subnautica has kept the game up-to-date and continued to add onto and improve the title all the way from initial early access launch up until today. The team's dedication to the project reflects the success that the title has had in the PC gaming marketplace.

With a 92% recommended rating on Steam's marketplace and more than 43,000 positive reviews, it's not surprising that at the time of writing, more than 3,000 people were playing the game on Steam. The game can be purchased right now on Steam and the Xbox Store.
