Unknown Worlds Entertainment have rolled out a hefty update for Subnautica: Below Zero and it adds the game's first land vehicle, the Snowfox, Snow Stalker land creatures and their biome, new Leviathan Chelicerate and its biome and more.

A lot of firsts here for Subnautica, so let's start with the first one - the Snowfox. The game's first land vehicle looks like a blast and, speaking of blasts, it comes with a speed boost ability. 

As part of Below Zero's updates, the Snowfox will soon get a jump module upgrade and it's built in the Snowfox Hoverpad, which also lets you customise it at you see fit.

Next up is Subnautica's first proper land beast, and as you can see, Snow Stalkers are much like their distant cousins from underneath the waves. "Snow Stalkers are aggressive and best avoided. Especially when they are with their offspring", wrote the dev.

Snow Stalkers live in the new biome called Glacial Basin, and Unknown Worlds promises plenty of room to explore.

Subnautica: Below Zero's second Early Access update also brings a new Leviathan-class creature. Dubbed the Chelicerate, the dev says it's got a nasty bite, but that not much is known about it.

You'll find the Chelicerate swimming around the new Purple Vents biome, which is a shallow environment with a bunch of pretty vents.

Last but not the least are new modules for Seatrucks, Subnautica: Below Zero's vehicle added in the first Early Access update.

The new modules are The Sleeper Module, the Docking Module and the Perimeter Upgrade.

The Sleeper Module is your very own personal condo, that you can drag around with you. "Complete with a bed, jukebox (functionality coming soon), and picture frame, you can take a slice of home wherever you adventure", the dev wrote.

In case you're fond of having the Prawn suit with you, and we know you are, you can lug it around as well with the Docking Module, while the Perimeter Defense one helps you identify and respond to nearby threats.
