The Spy Pengling
When the Unknown Worlds team first began working on Below Zero, the community banded together to send us a pitch document for a feature they dearly wanted to see: the Spy Pengling. This fun device is mostly just for exploring, collecting materials, and taking selfies. But it’s dear to our hearts.
The beautiful Tree Spire biomes is vast and colorful. Filled with a variety of life and beautiful geographical features.
The Vent Garden is a towering life-form that lives in Tree Spires. It appears to have its own internal ecosystem, but much about this creature is a mystery.
The Lilly Paddler is a new creature that will eventually like in Lillypad islands, a work in progress biome. This creature hypnotizes threats to disorient them and escape.
Seatruck Teleportation Module
Attaching a Seatruck Teleportation Module allows you to take a Precursor Tether to distant sites for instant, one-way transportation back to your Seatruck.
A new precursor artifact has appeared in a Kelp cave. It’s purpose is unknown
