That's right Sony fanpeeps. No longer can the PC Master Race and those pesky "Xbots" laud their underwater survival stories from Subnautica over you, because Unknown Worlds has revealed they've been working with console port kings, Panic Button (Doom, Rocket League), to bring their incredible playspace: Planet 4546B, to the PS4.
From Adam Creighton, Studio GM and Director of Development at Panic Button (via the PlayStation Blog):
What drew me to the game were the gorgeous visuals and the gameplay. There is a wonder and an excitement and a weight that I haven’t experienced with a lot of games in this type of setting.
It’s got a wide diversity of gameplay: scavenging and crafting and surviving, casual to hardcore permadeath options, and a base-building mechanic that makes your gameplay experience unique. Subnautica is a special game, and we’re looking to do some special things for PlayStation gamers (more on that later).
Subnautica will be available for PlayStation Store and physical purchase, and I’m looking forward to you all getting to enjoy it this holiday season on PS4.
The most interesting tidbit here is the idea there will be content unique to the PS4 version, and if that content is in the hands of a talented team that truly know the PS4's architecture, then we might be in for super new features. It should also be noted that Gearbox Publishing has come on board to help with a physical release for the game, which is equally great.
Having played the game across both PC and Xbox One (and finishing it on the latter), I can't hype it enough. Hopefully with the added help, and extra time, the game runs smoothly on PS4 as it's still not without performance issues on Xbox One.
