Subnautica PlayStation Update 1.08 Released

Posted by Hugh 3 weeks ago

PlayStation divers, we have a little update for you today. 1.08 has been released! 1.08 contains two changes.

First, we have fixed a painful issue with saved games. Before 1.08, Subnautica on PlayStation would fail to display an existing saved-game, and freeze when attempting to save a new one. The only solution was to delete the original, unseen saved game. This issue is now fixed.

Second, Japanese & Korean fonts now render properly. In the past, they would not display at all. This was… sub-optimal. You can now experience Subnautica with proper Japanese and Korean kanji! 🇯🇵🇰🇷

Enjoy, and be sure to follow @SubnauticaPS on Twitter, Subnautica PlayStation on Facebook, and sign up to the PlayStation development newsletter! We’ll …

Subnautica Xbox Update 1.0.0.32 Released!

Posted by Hugh 1 month ago

A new Subnautica update has been released on Xbox One! We have been working hard to reduce crashing caused by Subnautica gobbling up too much memory. This is a painstaking process in which we trim memory usage by all sorts of game sub-systems. We haven’t solved all crashes, but you should find the end-game much more stable.

Here are all the changes included in the update:

  • Fixed a bug causing the controller to become unresponsive
  • Removed a false-wall in the Aurora locker room that could interfere with progress
  • Seamoth docking is now more reliable
  • Optimizations to address memory related crashes in the end-game

We have also added more verbose save/load error messages. If you encounter a problem saving or loading …

Below Zero Micro-Update Released

Posted by Hugh 1 month ago

A small update has been released for Below Zero on the Steam, Epic, and Discord stores. This update is not a major feature release. It contains some bug fixes and improvements, and tries to fix some (but not all!) of the issues your feedback revealed after Below Zero release.

This update also serves to test our new triple-store build deployment system. This system sends the update to each of the Epic, Discord, and Steam stores at the same time. We want to make sure it is working properly before we release a major feature update.

To be notified as soon as we do release our first major feature update, subscribe to the Subnautica development newsletter, follow @Subnautica on Twitter

Subnautica: Below Zero Early Access

Posted by Hugh 2 months ago

Subnautica: Below Zero is now available in Early Access! Set one year after the original Subnautica, Below Zero challenges you to survive a disaster at an alien research station on Planet 4546B.

This frozen underwater adventure is a work in progress. As we did with Subnautica, we are building Below Zero out in the open. With your help, we will craft a worthy follow up to the original game.

Below Zero is full of bugs, runs poorly, and includes only a small portion of our planned features. It’s also a game we’re excited about. If you join us, we think you might enjoy this journey through Early Access.

If you would like to wait until the game is finished, please …

Below Zero on Xbox & PlayStation – When?

Posted by Hugh 2 months ago

Subnautica Below Zero is going into Early Access on Mac & Windows PC. We want to bring Below Zero to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 as soon as possible. We don’t know when it will be, and predicting dates is a Bad Thing™️ – We don’t want to disappoint you by speculating about a date we don’t know we can hit.

On Xbox One, we may be able to release Below Zero in Game Preview (Microsoft’s “Early Access” program) before launch. We can’t promise this, but we are exploring the possibility. Sony does not allow Early Access games, so we will not be releasing any kind of preview on PlayStation.

We are aiming to release the 1.0 version of …
