Subnautica, a game about surviving on an alien water world, has hit Epic Games’ new storefront. The layout reminds me a bit of Origin’s, but that’s another topic. The main takeaway here, if you were looking to try out Subnautica or even buy it, now is your chance on PC. You can grab it for free, forever, you grab it before December 27th this year.

I’ve had my eyes on it for a few months now, and I’ve also heard several good things about it from friends. It does require installing the Epic Games Launcher, so that will require another launcher to install. I just grabbed the deal, and I’m currently installing it. Below are some details and minimum/required specs for running Subnautica.


Prepare to dive
Descend into the depths of an alien underwater world filled with wonder and peril. Craft equipment, pilot submarines and out-smart wildlife to explore lush coral reefs, volcanoes, cave systems, and more – all while trying to survive.

Edited to reflect that while I saw originally the game was available until December 25th, it’s actually available until December 27th this year. Grab it while you can.
