Crystal Caverns

An expansive and stunning new biome awaits you in Crystal Caverns. Colorful crystals protrude the surfaces of this underwater location. But don’t get caught loitering! Crystal Caverns is also home to the formidable Shadow Leviathan.

Fabricator Caverns

The mysteries of the Fabricator Caverns lie in wait for you to uncover them. A hidden Fabricator base nestled in the depths of this biome poses a tantalizing question: what new objects will you be able to construct here?

Marguerit Maida’s Base

This well-hidden seabase is home to the enigmatic Marguerit. Should you find your way inside, will you be considered a welcome guest, or an Alterra foe?

Snowfox Base

Explore this abandoned Alterra facility, formerly used to produce Snowfoxes, to find everything you might need to ensure your stay on 4546B is a little more comfortable.

Shadow Leviathan

An aggressive and formidable leviathan class creature, the Shadow Leviathan lurks in the depths of the Crystal Caverns. Take care as you continue to explore this deep, mysterious location to avoid a deadly encounter.

Hidden Crocodile

Make sure not to dismiss the warnings of the hostile Hidden Crocodile. This creature terrorizes the depths of the Crystal Caves and does not like to be disturbed…


This stunning fauna species is safe to approach, as long as you don’t move too low! Touching the tentacles can lead to a nasty shock. But aren’t they so beautifully enticing?

Story Updates

The last of Below Zero’s current story will be available to play and enjoy in this update, before we ship a new version in 2020.

Filmic Mode

This new default mode improves the entire look of Below Zero and its captivating biomes, providing a more cinematic experience to your gameplay.
