Satisfactory

Currently available in early access for PC, Coffee Stain Studios’ Satisfactory has received its first major update. A number of additions have graced the first person factory builder, from conveyor lifts and new research chains to new equipment. Finally, you can embark on researching Quartz and Sulfur. Check out the update video below

Conveyor belts should bring some much needed verticality to transporting goods and they also require less space. A new vehicle, the Explorer, has also been added for scaling tough inclines. There’s also an in-game map to further help with exploration, and the Nobelisk detonator for “redesigning” the landscape appropriately. We assume that’s a fancy term for blowing things up, but hey, quicker access to resources.

If you’ve been having some trouble dealing with the local wildlife, don’t worry. The new FICSIT rifle is here for you. Check out the full patch notes here, with some highlights below. Stay tuned for more information on future updates. Satisfactory is currently available on the Epic Games Store for PC.
