There's a new terror lurking in Subnautica: Below Zero


Meet the squidshark

It wouldn't be Subnautica without a menagerie of underwater nightmare beasts lurking just out of sight, and this week's update is generous. In Subnautica: Below Zero's "first big" update since Early Access launch, Unknown Worlds has unearthed the squidshark, a creature with an unnervingly large maw.

To counterbalance the horrific squidshark, the team has also introduced seamonkeys, which are these goofy little creatures with goofy little arms that'll try to nab your equipment. They like to hoard.

Aside from the new fauna, Subnautica: Below Zero has a few more substantial additions worth seeking out. There's an island containing the Cargo Transfer Launchpad, biomes like Thermal Spires and Twisty Bridges, and the Seatruck, a modular vehicle that can tow additional units used for storage, item fabrication, and collecting marine organisms. As someone who never fully got to grips with confidently steering the hulking Cyclops submarine in the original game, I appreciate that it's smaller-scale.

I've resisted getting into Below Zero so far, but I like the look of everything here.
