Unknown Worlds Entertainment have rolled out an update for Subnautica: Below Zero via EGS, Steam and Discord stores, and the dev conceded it's a teeny-tiny one.

So basically - Subnautica: Below Zero developer is just ensuring you're covered until Cyberpunk 2077 is out, after which you should be good on your own. Kidding, of course.

"Hello, Subnauts! A new update has just been released for Subnautica: Below Zero on the Steam, Epic, and Discord stores. Though this is not a major Early Access update (consider it a half-way mark between Relics of the Past and our next major update!), it does contain a ton of bug fixes, optimizations, and polish to the world", the team wrote.

As promised, the update is more a filler for the rest of December, as the most noteworthy changes already arrived in the previous update .
