    Dec 15th next update for PC hits, so probably shortly after that (MS has to approve the update, usually 2 weeks for them to do that).

    When can we expect the precursor update out on Xbox One? Been watching the Indie Game Promoter's series and I must say I am containing my immense excitement, but that was before I saw the Gun go off. When it went off, I was like "ITS SO BEAUTIFUL :' ) *wipes tears of awe and joy from eyes*

    Not date yet, we have to fix a couple big issues which affect Xbox more than PC (but happens on both). We're working very hard to get it into your hands ASAP.

    So the precursor is the next update not a performance update of some kind coolness

    sweet! :D also I noticed that when I start a new game, and the survivor brings up the pda where it does the "greetings survivor" introduction, there is a blue square that appears as if there is something already selected in the inventory, before the a.i says the "interface visible now"

    Not necessarily. Obraxis said "we have to fix a couple big issues which affect Xbox more than PC (but happens on both)" -- which could very definitely be performance related, considering XB1 has performance issues, as do (lower-end) PCs (as well as higher-end ones sometimes).

    Will removal of terraforming be ready in time for the next stable steam update? It's been pushed back a few times. I'm wanting to start a new game soon, but I don't want to make a base that may be broken in about a week.

    Hi! Just wondering for those of us who bought the Early Access Version of Subnautica will we need to rebuy once the full release comes out or will we just be able to play?

    Hi! Just wondering for those of us who bought the Early Access Version of Subnautica will we need to rebuy once the full release comes out or will we just be able to play?

    Any game that you buy in Early Access you will get the completed 1.0 version for when it's released. They're way of saying thank you for dealing with our bugged a** game, and for helping locate those bugs so they can be squashed sooner. See it as if they are hiring us as rookie game testers, and in return we get the game at a discount and get to experience the building process of a game in a way. I'll tell you what, it's giving me alot more respect for game developers and what they go through to get us a great game. So to sum up the answer, no you will not have to rebuy or pay any additional costs for this or any other early access game you purchase, and yes you will just be able to play. Early Access is pretty awesome huh!!?? Sorry for such a long answer, just one of those days! Happy Diving Bromine! :D B) P.S. If you like early access games check out Astroneer by System Era, and The Long Dark by Hinterland. The Long Dark just went to 34.99 recently but they're scheduled for full release on Aug. 1st, and have one final pre-release update coming out sometime next week. Awesome game though, that and Subnautica are two of my favorite all-time games. Astroneer will most likely make that list too, but they're still fairly new (released a few months ago) the game and development team show great promise though.

    I play The Long Dark, i enjoy these types of games on my XB1. I was hooked on Subnautica for a week or so maybe but the lag/texture loading was really quite frustrating. Everytime I now wish to play Subnautica, I think how exciting it will be exploring the mysterious alienated water-filled world and how awesome some of the crafting elements are but I somehow resist as I know within 15 or 20 minutes gameplay I will end up turning it off due to the slow FPS. Its not so bad when swimming but using any vehicle is dreadul, which is a shame as its and awesome game and has great potential, which I hope will work well on XB1 one day.
