Pressure Re-Active Waterproof Nano Suit (PRAWN Suit) – The highlight of this update
The player-controlled PRAWN Suit is capable of diving to great depths and withstanding severe heat. Each PRAWN comes standard with two Claw Arms, which may be used to smash resource nodes and pick up loot. Players may modify their PRAWN Suit and install Mining Drills, Propulsion Cannons, Torpedo Launchers and Grappling Hooks.
Additionally, players will now be able to explore vast new areas of the stricken Aurora starship, the iconic crashed vessel seen in the distance at the beginning of the game. Other additions include many community-requested features, such as Cyclops camera lights and the option to quit to the Main Menu.
Unknown Worlds Entertainment observes an open-development style, allowing unhindered insight into the development process. Fans of Subnautica can follow the development of the game through the Subnautica Development Trello board.
