Subnautica Below Zero Story Complete Guide
subnautica below zero story As revealed in a news post on Steam, Unknown Worlds will be improving the story for Subnautica: Below Zero, with the help of their new writer, Jill Murray. The position includes three topics: an update on the future seventh Early Access update; to develop on reasons behind the changes coming to the story and to include Jill Murray.
Significant story changes won’t happen until next year, after the upcoming update launches, but rest confirmed, and they will come. The next update, titled “Deep Dive,” will make the whole of Below Zero playable outside of the endgame. Still, Unknown Worlds cautions that just because a game may be feature complete does not mean it is ready to be shipped. This, they say, is especially apparent with the story.
Where the first Subnautica set you in the role of a nameless, silent warrior stranded on the waves following a ship crash, Below Zero aimed to define a different story. Specifically, the player character was a voice-acted scientist who meets other characters and sentient creatures. Despite original writer Tom Jubert and Unknown Worlds’ best efforts, the team was unhappy with the result, marked by “trouble defining our characters’ motivations early and building key connections.” Jubert himself left Unknown Worlds nearly a month and a half ago to work on smaller, more indie projects. Enter Jill Murray.
A writer who got her start working on young adult novels in the late 2000s, Murray later went on to consider the role of Lead Writer for Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag and Shadow of the Tomb Raider and found her narrative design studio, Discoglobe Interactive. Unknown Worlds hasn’t said how Murray is going to lend her talents to the world of Subnautica: Below Zero, only that they plan on examining the current biomes further, as well as keeping the central characters the same in the hopes of developing them also. Again, all of the story changes will come sometime next year, after the Deep Dive update launches relatively soon. We’ll see just how well the shift in narrative focus works for Subnautica: Below Zero before long.
