The mysterious game world with a suspected environment
Setting in an open world environment, Subnautica brings the players to a mysterious ocean. In another word, when the players enter the game, they have already committed themselves to a survival adventure, in which they will have to deal with incredibly dangerous circumstances. In detail, the players will be controlling a survivor of a waylaid starship. As the name introduces, the starship's name is Aurora, and it is stuck in a remote ocean planet.
The players will play the game from a first-person viewpoint, as Subnautica requires them to complete tasks that help them to advance. The players can freely collect natural resources, constructing tools, submersibles, bases, as well as interact with the unbelievable wildlife of the targeted planet.
Various exciting game modes for the true explorers
Subnautica has the majority that set underwater, including two amazing islands. The game supports the players with a simulated day-and-night cycle, which affects the visibility of the game. From the beginning, the players have to select one of the modes below in order to make the most out of their gameplay: The "Survival" mode, which requires the player to maintain different meters such as oxygen, nutrition, and hydration. The game will take away some items from the players' inventories if they die. The "Freedom" mode, which disables "Hunger" and "Thirst".
The "Hardcore" mode, which disables the players from respawning. The other elements in this mode are the same as what in the "Survival" mode. The "Creative" mode, which disables many elements such as "Hunger", "Thirst",…. This mode also acquires the crafting blueprints.
The game plot that we are all looking for
Taking place in the 22nd century of humanization, Subnautica tells the story when humanity starts to colonize the star systems. The scientists decide to send a deep-space vessel named Aurora to the outer space, with hopes of building a section of rapid-speed space-traveling infrastructure, as well as look for a lost ship. A mysterious force affects the Aurora and makes it stuck on the planet. The players will take the role of one of the members in the crew that is stuck on the starship. After struggling with various rough situations, the playable character is the only survivor of the crew.
Subnautica implies the significance of learning about the game's theories, as the players must invest in the existence of the "Precursors". The existence of the "Precursors" also leads to multiple other stories that help uncover all the mysterious the players are trying to find out.
Subnautica is truly a superb video game for everyone to learn about space, planets, and aliens. In addition to that, this game helps you to unleash your survival skills, as long as you are ready for the most exciting features you are about to face in this game! Have fun!
