Castles & Coffee Update
Subnautica is a great game leading you to an open world where you have to survive at all costs. The game also allows you to travel and discover an aquatic alien planet which is filled with water by diving or moving in submersibles, while you are picking resources and food. Since the release date on Steam Early Access on December 16, 2014, the game is added with many exciting updates. Castles & Coffee is one of the latest releases that you should explore right now!
If you want to have a brief look at the update, you can watch the video below. It will provide you an overview of the journey of the main character, some new devices, machines, and much more.
The first thing that we’d like to introduce to you is the Lava Castle Precursor Base.
Lava Castle Precursor Base
The lava castle precursor base is a secret base which is hidden deep within bowels of that place. Of course, it doesn’t lack dangers waiting for you or any diver who trying to uncover this mysterious construction. At the entrance, you are able to see a Sea Dragon Leviathen. It takes on the role a guard. Aside from that, Stalkers are also the remarkable creature when they can prowl the narrow lava passageways while the immense heat and pressure are threatening near certain death. If you are enough lucky to enter that location, you can collect lots of treasures. Also, unravel many secrets.
The world in Subnautica is vast and unwelcoming. Therefore, your life will be able to depend on the steady supply of power that you can maintain to supply to your equipment and other means. With the new Ion battery together with power cells, your power can last longer than the power sources that you are using. Not only that, their extended run times will help you accomplish more exploration work between charges.
Sometimes, the game is added with a feature that is really important to players. And the coffee machine is one of those amazing features. With this machine, it’s very easy for you to enjoy and relax. Find it amongst the wreckage of the Aurora and put it in your base after that.
Gravsphere is a tool or a machine which can pull in everything around it. It’s suitable for you to draw in predators, gather prey and loot. Gravsphere and prototypes are being experimented for some time. Indeed, Castle’s and Coffee Update can bring proper model and animations for Graveshere.
Luggage bags have the function like a portable storage. You can pick it up, put it down and carry it easily. Besides, it is useful to store many items. Similar to the coffee machine, the luggage bag should be found inside the wreckage of the fallen spaceship.
Working Trash Cans
It’s time to say goodbye to the inventory clutter. Working trash cans should be carried with players for a while because they are necessary. However, you need to remember to protect the environment that you are staying due to it is not friendly.
The air bladder is a small item which has a proper model and animations. You are permitted to use the air bladder so as to head up to the surface of the ocean quickly or even rapidly. It’s especially essential for you when you are in sticky situations, in which you have to rise through the water from the depths in the short time.
If you don’t want to experience the spooky night when you are in the middle of the ocean, you can advance or skip time by sleeping. It is an extremely simple way to implement. Just hit the hay when the sun sets. Then, wake up when the sun shines through the sea-base windows.
