Subnautica now runs on Apple OS X! Get it now on the Steam Store – Buy it once and play on both Windows and OS X computers. Already own Subnautica for Windows? You can now play on OS X as well. The OSX Update also includes two epic new ocean biomes: Underwater Islands and Sparse Reef.
Underwater Islands features massive rock formations suspended above the ocean floor. Giant creatures, larger cousins of the Floater, act against the force of gravity. Bone Sharks and other creatures swim among cascades of sand.
Sparse Reef brings a new relaxed aesthetic and feel. The blooming colors and dense features of other biomes are replaced by more earthy tones, and rolling dunes. Watch out for bleeders…
Sparse Reef also features some new fauna to discover.
New in the OSX Update is the Repulsion Cannon – A workbench modification of the Propulsion Cannon. The Repulsion Cannon can push large creatures and objects away. This is very useful when trying to navigate past aggressive life forms like Stalkers.
The OSX Update also features a wide array of subtle improvements to Subnautica. For example, Jonas has repaired a problem that was causing objects to pop in and out of the world inappropriately, and Andi has solved some issues with the Propulsion Cannon introduced in the Alterra Science update.
Explore the fall range of changes in OSX Update by visiting the Subnautica Trello board. You can also get a granular, all-encompassing view of the update by visiting the Checkin & Changes List. Keep an eye on both those spots over the coming weeks to see us build towards some big additions to sea-base building in the near future…
