Unknown Worlds Entertainment have rolled out the final Early Access update for Subnautica: Below Zero, adding the all-new Crashed Ship story, integrated soundtrack, gamepad and rumble support, and more.

The dev has been pretty quiet since the last update in December , when they launched the PlayStation 4 save fix, so it's time to see what Unknown Worlds have been working on. 

For starters, Subnautica: Below Zero is leaving Early Access and coming to all platforms on May 14, 2021, so mark the date.

Unlike the earlier updates, Subnautica: Below Zero - Seaworthy isn't too heavy on flashy new features, as the dev aimed for a one-update-to-make-sense-of-all-updates and a proper Early Access sendoff.

Fans of Subnautica: Below Zero know that the studio took on a daunting task with the rewriting of the story, and the team proudly announced that the addition of the all-new Crashed Ship story means the story is locked in. "For real this time", they wrote in the trailer. 

The Seaworthy update lets players uncover an all-new and fully-voiced Crashed Ship story. This includes the new audio logs in the wrecks of the Mercury II ship, which should give you more insight into their fate.

Prawn Suit enthusiasts, which really should be everyone by now, should love the new manoeuvrability, courtesy of the horizontal boost, as well as the improvements to its upgrade modules like Torpedo Arm.

There's also the new loading screen, a fully integrated soundtrack with atmospheric tracks for each biome, Steam Cloud support, controller rumble support, and a host of bug fixes to boot.

  • Uncover the mysteries of the all-new, fully voiced Crashed Ship story
  • Enjoy the finalized soundtrack as you travel biome-to-biome
  • Utilize the improved Prawn Suit controls throughout your adventuring
  • Experience our most stable version of the game to-date with even more bug fixes
  • Check out the added gamepad and rumble support
