The Steam Update 67 has finally been released, but this isn’t a major update but rather a small one. The Steam Update 67 doesn’t come with any new features, but it does come with some very important improvements to the game.

It seems that Subnautica now supports Xbox controllers when playing on your computer. You can now adjust the controller’s bindings by accessing the new options sections that can be found in the main menu. However, keep in mind that controllers won’t work in the main menu, so you will still need to use your mouse and keyboard in there until it is supported later one.

The developers have also optimized the game to run more smoothly on a minimum spec computer. If you are playing Subnautica on a computer near the minimum requirements, you will surely notice that the frames per second are a bit higher than before.

Happily, the game will not crash as often as it did before. One of the most annoying bugs that Subnautica experienced in the past was the “grey screen” crash, where the game become non-responsive the only thing left to do was end-task it.

Steam Update 67: What’s New?

  •  The FPS command is now available on console
  • Some VR bugs have been fixed
  • The locked but known technologies will now be displayed as grey icons in fabrication menus
  • The turn speed of player and Seamoth are now more consistent
  • When you will drown while in Hardcore Mode, you will no longer see an endless black screen
