After spending a few years in Early Access, the underwater exploration and survival game Subnautica finally let players venture out into its uncharted waters earlier this year, and now the game will officially be heading out to consoles on the horizon.

Developer Unknown Worlds Entertainment has announced that Subnautica will be coming to PS4 later this year, as the studio shared that Panic Button — the studio behind recent ports such as DOOM and Wolfenstein II for Nintendo Switch — will be assisting the team to develop the game’s console version. A physical version of the game will also be coming through Gearbox Publishing, with pre-orders available starting today.

In addition to the PS4 version’s release, Panic Button will also be working on the game’s long-gestating Xbox One version in “accelerating” development on that particular console version. While no specific release date or window has been announced by the studio just yet for its official, the studio stated that it is is aiming to have the final release and updates for Xbox One “as quickly as possible” to have the date as close to the current PC release as possible.

Subnautica is available now on PC and Mac, with the PS4 version to arrive in holiday 2018; the Xbox One version will arrive at a later date. For a closer look at the game, you can check out the PS4 announcement trailer and several screenshots and pieces of concept art below:
