With Subnautica's May release date fast approaching the developers have really started cranking out updates. A mere month and a half has passed since the last one, and already we have a bunch of new content to explore. There's an alien infection that needs to be cured, a terrifying research facility to explore, a new Biome in the shape of the Crag Field, and the list goes on.

If you're interested in seeing what all of this looks like in action, here's the recently posted preview trailer. I would recommend you turn up the volume because these previews tend to have some pretty damn good music, and this one is no exception! Anyway, have a look:

Besides all of the new areas to explore and potentially drown in, the Infection update has also added two quality of life changes. The first and potentially most important one is the ability to drag and drop items from the PDA, basically allowing for quick item slot assignment. The second improvement revolves entirely around the Map Scanner Room, which now features a much greater scan radius, scans faster, and is a lot easier to actually move around in.

The update is already live on Steam, so if you feel like giving Subnautica another spin make sure to start up a new save and see what there is to see. On the other hand, if you would like to learn a little bit more about this update before diving in head on over to the announcement post. And finally, here's a couple of images showcasing the new locations:
