Below Zero Roadmap Rebooted & Release Timeline

Posted by david 3 months ago

What’s up with the roadmap?

If you’ve been following Below Zero’s development on Favro closely, you may have noticed that the Project Roadmap has changed a touch.

We’ve decided to try something a little different.  For years, we’ve used the roadmap as a way to try and plan a path forward with Subnautica.  Implicit in the roadmap is a hedge – that we don’t really know where we’re going and that we can change our minds as we go.  In spite of that uncertainty, we still try to plan as far out into the future as possible, and we have tried to include every individual feature – big or small, meaningful or trivial – on the roadmap.

Help Clean Our Planet’s Ocean

***This event has ended***

In celebration of World Environment Day on June 5th, Subnautica will go on sale alongside several other games as part of a Valve special event until June 8th. During this time, we volunteered to donate 15% of Unknown Worlds’ profits from the sales of the original Subnautica to the Ocean Cleanup, a non-profit foundation that aims to develop and apply technologies (directly as well as indirectly) to remove – on a large scale – plastic pollution from the oceans.

Not unlike the bacterium that threatened Planet 4546B, our planet is threatened by a mass accumulation of garbage in the ocean. Marine debris, out of which 80% is plastic, has been reported to have an impact
