Panic Button is bringing Unknown Worlds’ underwater survival game, Subnautica, to PlayStation 4.
The game puts players in the shoes of a 22nd century explorer who is stranded on a mostly-ocean alien planet after a massive energy pulse hits their ship. Players must scour the planet to find food, water, and materials to make the equipment and survive on the hostile planet.
“It’s got a wide diversity of gameplay: scavenging and crafting and surviving, casual to hardcore permadeath options, and a base-building mechanic that makes your gameplay experience unique,” Panic Button studio head Adam Creighton said. “Subnautica is a special game, and we’re looking to do some special things for PlayStation gamers (more on that later).”
Subnautica will be available both physically and digitally on PlayStation 4 later this year.
