Trivia

  • Due to the fact the AI at the beginning used to say "In the late 22nd century...", Subnautica is believed to take place between 2145-2199, explaining the high-tech items in-game. This message can be played below.
    Old Intro
  • There are different voices speaking in certain dialogue, the voices change depending on where the player is. ex: The Standard female voice is there most of the game, but in a Seabase, Seamoth, Prawn Suit, and Cyclops the voices change. This may be due to the fact the player fabricates computer chips for all of these things, so it is possible computer chips contain AI's.
    • However, this may not be true, due to the fact that many other items are used with computer chips but they do not have their own AI.
  • Obraxis Prime is a reference to one of the Subnautica developers, Scott "Obraxis" MacDonald.
  • "You've been down too long in the midnight sea.", was a reference to the song Holy Diver by the US heavy metal band DIO.
