Subnautica launches with a dramatic trailer

Henry Stenhouse spent his younger life studying the laws of physics, even going so far as to complete a PhD in the subject before video game journalism stole his soul. You'll find Henry chugging along the news train most days, throwing out features into the wild and finding any excuse possible to talk about esports when he can.

Formerly of the freelance life, Henry held such esteemed (read: imaginary) titles as PC Gamer's go-to CS:GO freelancer, and has been smitten with the competitive shooter life since growing up on the slopes of Dust2.

Henry's experience culminated in his role as AllGamer's premium FPS player, meaning he's won at least a single game of PUBG, we promise. Henry is also a fan of all things Nintendo and strategy, and still can't get over just how good Breath of the Wild is.

If you'd like to send Henry free stuff (he'll take a Vive Pro, thanks) contact him via email at or catch him on Twitter, here.

Released into the deep blue sea.

Indie underwater survival game Subnautica has officially launched on PC.

The 1.0 release is only for PC, with the Xbox One version updating to a state that is very close to the PC version, but with “more work to do” to ensure the performance and stability are up to the standards developer Unknown Worlds Entertainment would like.

The launch trailer show adds more to the story backing for the game, explaining that the player has crash landed on the planet and needs to develop their base and explore the seascape to find a cure to the illness slowly crippling them.

Subnautica was first released in Early Access in  2014 and has proven popular as a novel environment in which to set a survival game. The player must explore to find the resources to expand their base and uncover the secrets of the planet.

As the trailer shows, there are plenty of unpleasant creatures hiding in the depths of the ocean, but you can build machines to help you explore further, or simply play in a safe mode that lets you explore and view the wildlife without any risk of attack.

Subnautica is available now on PC or in early access on Xbox. A PlayStation 4 release is planned for the future.
