Subnautica PlayStation 1.04 Released

Posted by acedude 6 years ago

Subnautica on PlayStation has just been updated! 1.04 is a small update to address some crashing issues that popped up after launch yesterday. It also addresses a problem with world collision, i.e. stopping you and objects falling through the world.

We expected that 1.04 will not fully resolve the crashing problem. We are working on a more substantial future update that we expect will eliminate the crashing entirely. As always, we don’t give dates, because we don’t want to disappoint.

Stay tuned to @SubnauticaPS on Twitter, Subnautica PlayStation on Facebook, and sign up to the PlayStation development newsletter to be notified the moment the next update goes live.

Thank you for all your bug reports and feedback. We’re listening, we’re …


Countries missing from the PlayStation Store

Posted by acedude 6 years ago

Update 08 Dec 2018: This post originally stated that the issue was localisation of the game itself. That was incorrect, and the post has been updated with corrections.

Yesterday Subautica launched on PlayStation & Xbox, on both physical disks and via digital download. Unfortunately, the PlayStation Store is not presenting Subnautica in the following countries:

  • Norway
  • Belgium
  • Netherlands
  • Denmark
  • Portugal
  • Turkey
  • Sweden
  • Switzerland
  • UAE
  • Saudi Arabia

We were caught off-guard by this. We are traditionally a PC developer, and used to our games being released worldwide, without exception. We want Subnautica to be available on every country on Earth.

Unfortunately, we have run into a Sony restriction. If Subnautica’s PlayStation Store page is not fully localised for a particular …
