Land on an alien world. Scrap your ship for parts. Find materials. Build machines. Use those machines to build greater machines. It’s all part of the process of Satisfactory, a game of exploration and factory creation.
Satisfactory drops you onto a large planet (three biomes are available in the current build), tasking you with exploring it, dealing with the alien life that doesn’t want you there, and finding ores and items you can use to start creating machines for your factory. This is just what employees of FICSIT Inc do, after all.
The game is big on continually refining your factory, creating machines and conveyor belts that steadily feed into one another. As you refine better items, and then use those items to make better machines, and then use those machines to better automate your factory, you will slowly remove yourself from the equation, creating colossal, self-sustaining processes. They’re a spectacle to behold when in action, although expect to put in some serious time into your creations.
Satisfactory doesn’t ask you to do all of this stuff alone, as you can bring up to three friends into a game to help you build your dream machines. Spreading the workload does make things easier as you build machines and conveyor belts that tower into the sky.
Satisfactory is available now (in an Early Access state) from the Epic Games Store.
