Does Subnautica: Below Zero Have Co-op or Multiplayer Modes?

Subnautica Below Zero

Are you wondering if you can play Subnautica: Below Zero in co-op or multiplayer mode?

We don’t advocate games having multiplayer modes for the sake of it; we’re still baffled as to why someone looked at The Last of Us and thought it needed a versus mode.

However, playing the original Subnautica, we did think it’d be interesting to rope some other players in, if only to act as decoys.

So, now Subnautica: Below Zero has come along, can you play this aquatic sandbox game in multiplayer co-op mode or versus mode? Maybe have them distract a Leviathan while you plunder the seabed it was roaming? Perhaps double-cross them and flee with the gold while their submarine is torn to pieces?

Unfortunately not. There is no multiplayer mode, either co-operative or competitive, in Below Zero. You’re not entirely on your own in the depths of this alien planet’s ocean but there won’t be any human players to lend you a hand.

Weekend Editor // Chris has been gaming since the days of the Acorn Electron, which was allegedly purchased to 'help him with his homework'. You can probably guess how well that went. He’ll tackle most genres – football titles aside – though he has a taste for games that that are post-apocalyptic, horror-oriented or thought provoking in nature.
