Voice of the Deep Update Released!

Posted by Jessica 5 months ago

The Precursors built this place to contain something. Something interested in you. The Voice of the Deep update is now available on Steam! Learn more on the Voice of the Deep site.

The Voice of the Deep Update introduces big pieces of Subnautica’s end-game. The mystery surrounding many story arcs is finally revealed!

The Containment Facility

Deep beneath the ocean floor, a huge Precursor facility lies embedded in the rock. Inside explorers will find a multitude of artefacts, data repositories, and fragments of history.

Emperor Leviathan

The Containment Facility contains… Something. That something is massive, and very much interested in you. The Emperor Leviathan might be a friend, a foe, or neither: We recommend you exercise caution when entering the Containment Facility.

Silent Running 2.0

We’ve listened carefully to your feedback, and made a second pass on Cyclops Silent Running. The Cyclops has been enhanced with stronger shields, larger energy reserves, and new abilities. The engine may now be shut down for complete silence, giving you a safe haven from which to operate.

The boat may be rigged for silent running at any speed. After activation, the Cyclops will be silent for a short time, while the ability regenerates. High speed dashes are possible with flank speed, but watch out, the engine might overheat if you run at flank speed for too long.

Precursor Pipes

Mysterious pipes have appeared throughout the world. They appear to be both ingesting and discharging large volumes of water and… Peepers. What is the purpose of these pipes? Why are the Peepers swimming through them? It is a mystery for intrepid divers to solve!

New PDA Interface

The Personal Digital Assistant (PDA) has received a glorious overhaul. A slick new interface acts to provide you with detailed information about undersea flora and fauna. Better yet: Icons throughout the game have received a makeover, too. Subnautica has been rolling with placeholders for a long time. No more!

Lifepod 7

A new stricken Lifepod is available for you to find and explore. Lifepod 7 contains eclectic treasures for any diver clever enough to find it!
