Subnautica: Below Zero Trailer

Unknown Worlds has released the latest cinematic trailer for the upcoming Subnautica: Below Zero that gives us a glimpse of what to expect in the upcoming expansion. Originally announced back in 2018, the first major expansion for Subnautica now has a release date of May 14, 2021, and digital pre-orders are now live for the game as well. At this point, Subnautica: Below Zero is available in early access on Steam.

Despite being an expansion of the original Subnautica, Subnautica: Below Zero is a standalone expansion and does not require you to own the original game in order to play it however to make sense of the story, it will be better if you play the original title first. Subnautica: Below Zero is set two years after the story of the original Subnautica. It will follow the same formula of the original title as you will arrive on the Planet 4546B and then survive the harsh frozen wasteland by building your very own habitats, crafting tools, and diving deeper into the world of Subnautica: Below Zero to uncover a deadly cover-up.

Key features of the game include:

  • Return to planet 4546B – Submerge yourself in an all-new, sub-zero expedition in an arctic region of Planet 4546B. Arriving with little more than your wits and some survival equipment, you set out to investigate what happened to your sister…
  • Uncover the truth – Alterra left in a hurry after a mysterious incident. Abandoned research stations dot the region. What happened to the scientists who lived and worked here? Logs, items, and databanks scattered among the debris paint a new picture of the incident. With limited resources, you must improvise to survive on your own.
  • Discover uncharted biomes – Swim beneath the blue-lit, arching expanses of Twisty Bridges. Become mesmerized by the glittering, mammoth crystals of the Crystal Caverns. Clamber up snow covered peaks and venture into the icy caves of Glacial Basin. Maneuver between erupting Thermal Vents to discover ancient alien artifacts. Below Zero presents entirely new environments for you to survive, study, and explore.
  • Construct habitats and vehicles – Survive the harsh climate by constructing extensive habitats, scavenging for resources, and crafting equipment. Blast across the snowy tundra on a Snowfox hoverbike. Cruise through enchanting and perilous biomes in your modular Seatruck.
  • Research alien lifeforms – Something undiscovered lurks around every corner. Swim through the giant Titan Holefish, encounter the haunting Shadow Leviathan, and visit the adorable Pengwings. Keep your wits about you. Not all creatures in this strange world are friendly.
  • Survive the chilly temperatures – Jump in, the water’s warm. The below zero temperatures of this arctic region pose a new threat. New weather conditions blanket above-ground habitats. Craft a toasty cold suit, sip on piping hot coffee, and warm up next to Thermal Lilies to stave off the chill.
  • An ocean of intrigue – What really happened to your sister? Who were the aliens who came here before? Why were they on this planet? Can we find solace from grief in truth? Below Zero extends the story of the Subnautica universe, diving deep into the mystery introduced in the original game.

Subnautica: Below Zero will also get a physical release along with its digital release.
