Subnautica coming to PS4 thanks to Panic Button; to release this year
After releasing on PC and Mac, Subnautica is on its way to consoles. A PS4 version has now been announced, and it’s being ported by Panic Button.
The devs of Subnautica certainly had a blast when they released the game on PC and Mac in January this year. They should soon have more reason to celebrate, as the game is on its way to the PS4 (apart from the Xbox One version).
Veteran port developer Panic Button revealed the PS4 version of the game on the PlayStation Blog yesterday. Although there is no specific release date yet, Panic Button hopes to have the game ready by holiday season this year. It will be available both digitally and physically, and the physical version will be handled by Gearbox Publishing.
There will also be “some special things” for PS4 players of the game, but details on those will be revealed at a later date. Furthermore, Panic Button does not plan to port the VR component of the game to PS VR.
Panic Button has previously been responsible for such ports as Rocket League (to Xbox One and Switch), Doom (to Switch) and Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus (to Switch). It is also porting Warframe to the Switch.
Here’s what Subnautica’s about, according to the Steam page:
You have crash-landed on an alien ocean world, and the only way to go is down. Subnautica’s oceans range from sun drenched shallow coral reefs to treacherous deep-sea trenches, lava fields, and bio-luminescent underwater rivers. Manage your oxygen supply as you explore kelp forests, plateaus, reefs, and winding cave systems. The water teems with life: Some of it helpful, much of it harmful.
