Is the Subnautica: Below Zero Story Finished?

The endgame for Subnautica: Below Zero unlocked for all players once it officially released on May 14, 2021. For those of you that have been actively playing and don’t want to lose your progress, you don’t need to create a new save. Fortunately, it’s available for everyone once you update your game. This includes the complete finished story according to the developer on the Seaworthy update page. You can see what they said below,

“To our amazing adventurers, we are nearing the end. This update marks our final major update. While we have added a complete story, the finale will remain hidden until release to keep the mystery alive.

We hope that you are as excited as we are to finally find out how it ends. Regardless we want to simply say: Thank you. It’s been an absolute pleasure developing the game with you.”
