Coffee Stain Studios has announced that Satisfactory, the otherworldly first-person factory building sim will soon launch on Steam Early Access. Moreover, the team has released the third major update for its game. As such, below you can find out what is included in it.
Update 3 sees pipes introduced to the game. As well as making Pioneer pipe dreams a reality, Update 3 introduces a new Resource Sink.
The highly anticipated introduction of pipes to Satisfactory adds a completely new layer of complexity for budding factory architects with the addition of fluids. Pioneers can now command the flow of Fluid Oil resources and harness the power of the Water Extractor whilst tinkering with Pipes & Flow Indicators, Pipe Pumps, Fluid Tanks for Trains and command their very own Oil Refinery.
The introduction of the Resource Sink means production never halts as it consumes excess inventory, and gives coupons. Players can spend these coupons on their factory on exciting new constructs such as glass walls and floors. FICSIT Inc. have also continued to conquer new ground, giving Pioneers a brand new starting area to explore and exploit. As well as the new features added to Satisfactory, Update 3 has also made Pioneers more agile than ever before, with the addition of the character Crouch & Slide.
Update 3 completely revamps Satisfactory with a total rebalance of the game. Furthermore, it packs an endless list of technical fixes, balancing improvements and optimisations to every aspect of the factory sim. It also brings bug fixes, texture improvements, a host of new models and the beginnings of a dynamic wind system. Last but not least, the Jump Pads now affect creatures and physical objects too, for lots of satisfying bouncy chaos.
