Below Zero is an underwater adventure game set on an alien ocean world. It is a new chapter in the Subnautica universe and developed by Unknown Worlds. Return to planet 4546B.
Dive into a freezing underwater adventure. Below Zero is set in an arctic region of planet 4546B. As a scientist posted to a research station on the planet's surface, you are tasked with studying alien artifacts… The Vesper space station orbits high above you, sending supplies, instructions, and receiving samples you launch from the surface.
When disaster strikes the research station, you must improvise to survive: Construct habitats, scavenge for resources, hunt for food, and craft equipment.
Subnautica: Below Zero improves on its predecessor in all topics, featuring a much deeper narrative and more varied gameplay that adds new mechanics and possibilities creating an endearing experience.
While not revolutionizing the experience of its predecessor, Subnautica: Below Zero enriches and expands the excellent playful insights of Unknown Worlds, packaging a survival with a stimulating and inspired narrative background. If you are looking for an experience focused on simulation survival, but at the same time prefer to let yourself be taken by the hand by a guided but intelligent advancement, then you just have to sink into the abyss of 4546B.
This can be a fiddly game, and certainly isn’t one for people who dislike mining or organising elaborate storage systems, but after a couple of years in Early Access this is now a refined and elegant experience, gently paced, where there is always something interesting to pursue through beautiful spaces. Voluntary isolation in the deep cold might not sound like solace after a winter of lockdowns, but Subnautica: Below Zero is cosy and moreish. Dive in, and you may be surprised how deep you end up going.
