Subnautica is an underwater survival game that’s been extremely well-received since its official release in 2018. Despite its overwhelmingly positive reviews on Steam, it has still managed to fly slightly under the radar as far as open-world survival games go. Subnautica‘s first expansion, Below Zero, is approaching its official release date, but it has been in early access since January 2019. With the release around the corner, more people are beginning to wonder about the Subnautica: Below Zero release time and other details to get prepared. Here’s everything you need to know.

In Below Zero, players will explore a new arctic region of Planet 4546B, starting with nothing but some basic survival gear. Explore the depths, taking in your surroundings and the vast crystals of the Crystal Caverns. Figure out what happened to Alterra while trying to survive the harsh climate.
