I haven't Yet got Subnautica but I haven't seen anyone saying that you can play it on A Windows 8 Laptop. So i was wondering can you Run Subnautica on Windows 8 Laptop upgraded to Windows 10?

    Subnautica is a 64bit game, so as long as your Windows version is 64bit running Vista SP2 or above then you're fine :smile:

    If NS2 fails, follow my Nuke From Orbit Guide.

    well its not just about windows, it also depends on the hardware. I am actually surprised that a dev, who already took the time to post here, didn't gave you a detailed information. If your laptop only has an intel integrated gpu don't expect too much, neither from a low end nvidia/amd gpu.

    They only asked about the OS, so I answered that. Of course you need to meet the minimum system requirements, but that's a given on any game.

    IF you have yet to upgrade, get your Video drivers ready on a flash stick. Windows 10's drivers are 4 months out of date and several Video drivers will have serious problems.
    IF it is already updated and appears to be running fine then, go to the sound and video manufactures websites and use their most up to date drivers.
    Other than that (and as long as your not hit with several major bugs) Subnautica runs like a dream with Win10. A lot of things do even older computers.
