Subnautica Xbox Save/Load Hotfix

Posted by acedude 6 years ago

Good news, Xbox players! We’ve just released an update that fixes a horrible save/load bug.

Somewhat absurdly, this bug caused anyone in a UTC+N timezone, e.g. UTC+4, to have to wait N hours before they could save a game, and then N hours for every subsequent save. Max and Scott had a whale of a time tracking it down, but it is now dead.

This update contains no other changes other than the save/load bug fix. Of course, we continue to work on more updates that will contain performance improvements, content, and stability enhancements.

There may be other save/load bugs still lurking out there. Please let us know if you encounter any trouble saving and loading your progress on …

3-in-1 On the Edge Of Release

Posted by acedude 6 years ago

Update 07 Sep 2017: 3-in-1 has been released!

Original article published 28 Aug 2017:


Last week, we were prepping a 3-in-1 update for Xbox One launch. We passed the last hurdles with Microsoft, and were running through the final launch sequence checks, when this happened:

It is colourful, but it is not fun. We have not yet identified the cause, but somewhere on the way between our development kits and retail Xbox’s, our textures are going haywire.

This is, in many ways, very disappointing. For us, but more importantly, for all of you. You’ve waited far too long, and we’ve tripped at the final hurdle before update release.

In other ways, it is a good situation. We know …
