Subnautica This Month

Unknown Worlds announces January 23rd will be the release date for Subnautica, their underwater action game. This game has traveled at least 20,000 leagues under the sea since its "earliest access" launch in October of 2014 and its Early Access launch two months later. They are celebrating the event with a Subnautica Launch Livestream from the Monterey Bay Aquarium in California. This game follows the scenario of a lot of sci-fi survival games, except you crash land on the ocean floor, rather than an alien planet. Here's a bit:
Dive Into a Vast Underwater World
You have crash-landed on alien ocean world, and the only way to go is down. Subnautica's oceans range from sun drenched shallow coral reefs to treacherous deep-sea trenches, lava fields, and bio-luminescent underwater rivers. Manage your oxygen supply as you explore kelp forests, plateaus, reefs, and winding cave systems. The water teems with life: Some of it helpful, much of it harmful.

Scavenge, Craft, and Survive
After crash landing in your Life Pod, the clock is ticking to find water, food, and to develop the equipment you need to explore. Collect resources from the ocean around you. Craft knives, lights, diving gear, and personal water craft. Venture deeper and further form to find rarer resources, allowing you to craft more advanced items.

Construct Underwater Habitats
Build bases on the sea floor. Choose layouts and components, and manage hull-integrity as depth and pressure increase. Use your base to store resources, park vehicles, and replenish oxygen supplies as you explore the vast ocean.
