The wait is almost over. Subnautica is coming to Xbox One on December 4th, 2018. You will be able to buy Subnautica digitally or on a physical disk. If you are in Europe, physical disk sales will start three days later on December 7th.
Many of you have already purchased Subnautica through Xbox Game Preview. On launch day, your Game Preview copy will automatically become a full release copy – You don’t need to buy the game again.
To everyone in Game Preview: We extend our most heartfelt thanks. You have waited for months, enduring awful bugs and tanking frame rates. Your feedback has been invaluable in helping us to craft the upcoming 1.0 release. On launch day you will be able to download the 1.0 update, and enjoy a big increase in performance, smashed bugs, and new content.
Now, let’s talk about dates. Game development is a wild ride. We are very confident we will hit December 4th, but there is always a chance of last minute catastrophic failure. If something happens, we will keep you updated.
This is Unknown Worlds’ first console release. We are traditionally a PC game developer, so we are super nervous and super excited. We are very thankful to Panic Button and Gearbox Publishing for helping us to bring Subnautica to Xbox One.
On launch day, we will need your help to get the word out. If you would like to help, follow @SubnauticaXbox on Twitter, Subnautica Xbox on Facebook, Subnautica Xbox on Youtube, and sign up to the Subnautica Xbox mailing list. When we go live, every retweet, share, and like will help. We hope as many people as possible will have the chance to dive into Subnautica’s depths.
To everyone in Game Preview: Again, thank you. To everyone waiting for launch day: We can’t wait to see you on Planet 4546B. Prepare to dive.
