After the great success of Subnautica on Steam, as well as the second game Subnautica: Below Zero, the developer of this undersea survival game, Unknown Worlds Entertainment, is preparing to release a second game. 3 in the coming time with the ambition to continue the success of the previous two games.
Specifically, in an interview with the PCGamesN news site, art director Cory Strader revealed hints about the studio’s plans. Among them is the possibility of a third Subnautica, with a multiplayer system. As Strader explained, Unknown Worlds Entertainment originally intended Under Zero to be a DLC for Subnautica rather than a standalone game. As a result, it is quite similar to the original 2018. The main difference in gameplay is the addition of a temperature mechanism. The player must prevent hypothermia in extreme environments. Below Zero offers significantly more surface explorations and new means of exploring in-game worlds however the core experience is mostly the same.
And because Unknown Worlds Entertainment intends Under Zero to become DLC, developers have overlooked potential new features like multiplayer mechanics and VR. Of course, both of these modes have mods but no official support. However, Strader points out that the studio has “rethought” their attitudes towards the multiplayer mode. While he did not make any specific promises, Strader said that the multiplayer mechanics is not worth discussing if a new Subnautica title comes out.
This suggests that a Subnautica 3 is only in its early stages of development and is far from emerging. Of course, before he can do that, Unknown Worlds needs to finish developing new extras for Subnautica: Below Zero. The game is still in Early Access on Steam, and the studio has a lot to do before version 1.0 releases this spring.
The website PCGamesN also said that Unknown Worlds also has at least one new project in progress. However, the studio currently does not want to reveal more, one possibility is that Unknown Worlds may be returning to work on Future Perfect, a game announced in 2014 with the ability to shoot a multiplayer first-person shooter. . However, it has slowed to wear during development. Another possibility is that Unknown Worlds is working on Natural Selection 3, which is a unique sci-fi strategy shooter.
It is known that Subnautica is a virtual reality adventure game, bringing players into a strange underwater world full of danger. Craft, test submarines, discover interesting things like dangerous creatures, coral reefs, volcanoes, winding cave systems and more – do everything and try to survive in.
In “Subnautica”, players will play the role of a single fever survivor of a futuristic technology ship that has just crashed on an ocean planet. You will have to collect materials, build all kinds of tools, bases and diving items to explore a vast water environment according to the main storyline of the game. With the context of the sci-fi world, the creatures and tools that the player has access to are very unique. Subnautica is highly appreciated by the critics as well as the gaming community when Subnautica’s Metacritic score on Steam is always high: 87 (Very Positive)
