We've returned to the depths of Planet 4546B in one of its colder regions to pick up a different story to that of the original Subnautica. This time unraveling multiple mysteries, and all while building some pretty cool stuff in the survival process, through plundering its rich and resource-diverse depths.
It also has penglings.
This franchise-in-waiting is an absolute gem, and if the freshly-launched sequel is any indication of the imagination and creativity permeating the brain trust at Unknown Worlds, we can't wait to see what's next.
