Huge Subnautica fan here. I own both games and enjoy them for differing reasons. If I want underwater, I'll play Subnautica. If I want low-key, don't have to think too much relaxing evening in space? NMS.

The game got criticized during initial release rightfully so. It was a lie and lacking most of all the content promised and was just plane broken. Now they get criticized for adding content???? Are you people serious? They add under water content and because Subnautica exists its automatically "OMG RIP OFF, HOW DARE THEY DO THAT!" Its free content and a lot of it! I swear some people ***** just for the sake of making noise.

People who actually play the game WANT THIS CONTENT, if you are so offended by it being added and don't buy it simply because they added it you never planned on buying it to begin with so lets no pretend that it is the last straw. Its such a ridiculous argument, "They added content similar to another game, how dare they! I will not buy it!"

If you feel like this it is a boring grind fest of a game, then you are clearly not interested in this category, but I will say that it is the least grindy game I have played in a long time, especially considering the category which is inherently grindy. Elite Dangerous is light years more grindy and so are a dozen other games.

I was right there criticizing the game during initial release because of legitimate issues. They have resolved the issues that I had with the game and have added a ton of content since. I picked it up for $25 and will say its vastly more entertaining than Elite Dangerous and its actually here unlike Star Citizen. I have paid more for games that offered less. I mean hell I paid a premium for ED and now I have to buy all of the content they are adding to the game on top of that, here they are including it with the base game, IE "free" if you already own it.

Cant we all just be happy that this turned from being a complete flop to a good game with lots of content?

running 1440P here, RX580 undervolted to keep it silent and I hit 60fps without terrain tessellation. I do not have all settings maxed, but I have most of the pretty details up there. Terrain tessellation on medium I get about 40/50 fps, but I have texture flickering issues without the Nexusmods fix..

While I know some folks here are criticizing, I am not. I have enjoyed NMS. I picked it up when NEXT came out. This update just reminded me of Subnautica is all.

I personally think it is fantastic they keep pushing free updates to bring the game closer to what was promised. How many game companies do that after releasing a broken mess far short of what was promised?

This wasn't directed to any particular person, certainly not you. Its more of a broad ramble about how people are seemingly never satisfied and want to complain about really anything.


People say performance is terrible, My brother-in-law is running it with an i5-4460 and GTX 670 without issue, what performance issues are you having?

I am not criticizing NMS, after doing a bit more research I am actually really surprised that they were able to turn around such an abysmal launch (arguably the most abysmal launch in video game history) into something people want to buy and want to play. Plus they seem to be profiting off of it so that is even more impressive in my book. Maybe I actually will pick this up when the next big content update drops.

Man that guy in the video posted by the OP is so freaking annoying. I was expecting to see gamplay video, not some dolt droning on and on about patch notes plugging his reaction video of a trailer.



I have better things to do than listen to someone who does not.

Like others, I think the devs should be praised for adding *free* content, so long after release !

How cool is that ? And who else is doing this ? Heck, WB ceased to even fix Arkham Knights, 3 months after the broken release !

I'm surprised people still think that NMS is a failure.
It sold well and it's still selling well. It received updates since release and has hours of content.

It's also at the top of the chart in the top sellers list with every update since 1.3 or something which was 2 years ago.

Game goes on sale with every update - I got the game for $20 and have around 40 hours in the game.

I'm more surprised that on Steam people have 400 hours in the game and give it a negative review.

I edited the original post back to the launch trailer. I do agree that his voice isnt the most pleasing to listen to. This new content has sold me and i plan on getting the game this weekend. Im not expecting a masterpiece, but i do enjoy the genre of game.
