Subanutica is something of a fine wine in the survival genre. Among peers that either never got finished or dwindled over time, Subnautica continued to get better up until the widely loved final release in January of this year. Now said final release is at last taking the dive over to PS4 later on in the year.
Taking a unique single-player only approach to the survival genre, Subnautica sees you crash land on the aquatic planet 4546B. With your ship wrecked, it is up to you to dive deeper and deeper into the alien waters to find supplies and build better and better gear to survive your stay on the planet. Throughout the adventure, players will travel deeper into the depths of 4546B, going from the blue reefs to the murky depths as you unlock better diving equipment by finding blueprints scattered around the ocean. You eventually unlock submarines and other equipment to see all the game’s world has to offer.
Subnautica impressed a lot of reviewers when it launched earlier this year on PC and Xbox One, not just for its solid and polished survival mechanics and fresh take on the genre but also because of its surprisingly deep story that unravels over the course of its 25-hour campaign. The game is largely considered to be one of the best offerings to come out of the rush of survival games that came out around 2013 when Day Z made the genre popular.
No release date has been given yet by developer Unknown Worlds Entertainment for Subnautica’s PS4 debut other than just a tentative Fall 2018. Hopefully though, the game will be a welcome adventure to play through during the winter months.
