Xbox One players received the same 1.0 update as Steam users, but Unknown Worlds announced they will be keeping Subnautica in Xbox Game Preview for a little longer. Currently, the developers are unhappy with the game’s performance on Xbox One and will be spending the coming weeks optimizing the Xbox One version.
Subnautica is a survival game set underwater on an alien planet covered in oceans. Starting with only a small Life Pod designed for emergencies, players will need scavenge the oceans depths for resources as they contend with standard survival game challenges, like hostile wildlife, and challenges specific to the ocean setting, like depth related pressure and a constant battle for oxygen. Along the way, players will discover the planet’s history and uncover the mystery locked within its ocean.
Subnautica is available now on Steam for $24.99 USD; however, the game is on sale as part of the launch promotion for $22.49 USD until January 30.
