Subnautica's Dangerous Creatures Update is Now Live

Subnautica's Dangerous Creatures Update is Now Live

As if we needed more reasons to be terrified of the ocean...

Unknown World's Subnautica preys on our fear of the deep, dark ocean, and its latest update, Dangerous Creatures introduces even more terrifying deep sea monsters. Check out the video to the right and the official site for the full patch notes.

Essentially, this update adds two new creatures: the Sea Dragon Leviathan and the Warper, tweaks and adds variants of a couple of existing creatures: the Ray and the Crabsquid, and adds two new zones while it's at it: the tree cove and the final abandoned base. The Sea Dragon in particular is absolutely horrifying, and I hope I never run into one while playing.

Subnautica was first released on Steam back in 2014 as an early access title, and has been slowly receiving updates since. The developers have been very transparent on the whole process, and its definetely worth checking out.

Subnautica has been featured on The Escapist stream in the past, and I will endeavor to stream gameplay from the new update in the very near future, so stay tuned!

Ive played it myself and its one of those early access games worth picking up already

I'm one of those people that absolutely hates being underwater in games
and hate encountering terrifying things while underwater
so while this game actually looks super interesting and fun
I'll skip until they add a minecraft peaceful style mode

Good news, the sea dragon leviathan is very deep and hard to get to.

This is the reaper leviathan. One of your first instincts upon crashing on this alien world might be to go investigate the ship you arrived in. Those things spawn around it. You WILL wreck your pants.

That said this is one of those examples of early access done right, a solid game that gets built on regularly.

Looks nice, but I'll admit I've no idea what the game is about. Seen it on the featured list on steam a fair bit though.

That mode already exists, it's called "Creative Mode" where nothing can hurt you and you have unlimited resources.
I've been Aquaphobic in Video Games ever since I got traumatized by an Ichthyosaur in Half-Life.
This game has gone a long way to curing me of that.... until I got jumped by the aforementioned Reaper Leviathan.
Since then shock therapy has been working, that is I've been shocking the damn thing with a mini-sub mounted taser every time it comes close.

In a few more updates the story should be complete, basically your spaceship is shot down and you need to do a bunch of things to disable the gun that did it and eventually escape the planet. Most of the game is underwater which is a nice unique environment for a game.

You just posted that as a review to :)

TLDR, Open World Survival Game.

Slightly longer answer, you are the survivor of a crashed Starship, you have to survive and figure out a way to either escape or call for help. Of course, being set in the same universe as Natural Selection (and made by the same guys) the story rapidly gets more complicated than just 'find parts, escape,' not to mention quite a bit darker.

A goodly chunk of the plot is already in the game and it's shaping up to be interesting. Definitely one to watch out for when they finish it.

Interesting. Will keep an eye on the game.

I'm looking forward to getting the game once it's finished (haven't yet because I want to see the game as it is meant to be rather than play with the pieces while they stitch it together). I have been enjoying watching Markiplier play it so much, though.

I'm starting to get the vibe that this game will be far closer to what No Man's Sky was supposed to be than No Man's Sky will ever get to at this point.
