Subnautica: Below Zero Early Access Next Week

Unknown Worlds announces that Early Access to Subnautica Below Zero begins on January 30th, offering a countdown timer ticking off the seconds until the release. They plan a livestream to celebrate at that time, providing links for potential viewers. They stress that this does not mean development is complete: "Below Zero is not finished. It is full of bugs. It lacks polish, runs poorly, and is missing features. We are offering Early Access not because we want your money, but because we want your feedback. We make better games when we make them with you." Here's word on how this follows the underwater action of the first Subnautica game:
Dive into a freezing underwater adventure on an alien planet. Set some time after the original Subnautica, Below Zero challenges you to survive a disaster at an alien research station on Planet 4546B. Craft tools, scavenge for supplies, and unravel the next chapter in the Subnautica story.

Then make it free to play during Early Access, assholes Rolleyes .
Exactly.
There's reasons not to, including that it lowers the bar so far it invites negative reviews. I've seen patterns on good games when they do sales super low, a flood of negative reviews come in and lowers the average.

Part of that is probably related to the thing people have where if something is cheap it's viewed as crap quality.

They've done this before, if they do it in same pattern, they will be fine.
