Krafton reveals the first details of what we can expect from this sequel
Unknown Worlds Entertainment has left us in recent years with the unforgettable adventure of Subnautica and its Below Zero expansion, although the company intended to expand this universe even further. That led them to announce in April 2022 that they were working on a completely new game in the series, initially known as Project M.
Now, thanks to the latest financial report published by Krafton, the company that acquired the team, it has been revealed that this title will be called Subnautica 2. Furthermore, the document also revealed some important details about what we can expect from this new installment.
One of the most notable new features is that Subnautica 2 will have a multiplayer mode as its main asset, although it can also be played alone. Those who prefer to share the experience with others can form groups of up to four players to explore the depths of the sea together and discover all the secrets hidden on an ocean planet different from the one we already knew.
To enhance the gaming experience and make it more realistic, the game will use the Unreal Engine 5 graphics engine, which they have guaranteed will allow players to enjoy very impressive quality. Additionally, the gameplay will be based on a game-as-a-service model, promising enormous replayability without going into more details about it.
However, it has not yet been indicated which platforms will host the arrival of Subnautica 2, and official materials for this sequel have not been provided either. At least, its launch is planned for this year on a date to be determined.
