Coffee Stain Studios are most likely bored with everybody saying that their Goat Simulator and Sanctum follow-up Satisfactory appears to be like like a first-person Factorio, however I’d say that’s a comparability to embrace. A very good thing given a brand new perspective, plus dune buggies and jetpacks? Yeah, g’wan.
It’s been a bit quiet on the Satisfactory entrance for some time now, apart from information that the factory-builder could be an Epic Games Store exclusive, however scorching off the manufacturing line is that this shiny new newsmobile – an early entry model of Satisfactory is due later this month.
There’s additionally a extraordinarily fancy new trailer, which options erotic stroking of gleaming conveyor belts. They know their viewers.
EXTREMELY FANCY. I’m so accustomed to constructing games involving a top-down perspective and itty-bitty mini-folk by now that seeing all of it close-up, shining and immense is sort of the head-spinner. I suppose the purpose is to do for manufacturing line games what Planet Coaster did for theme park sims.
Satisfactory’s early entry construct launches on the Epic Games Store on March 19, costing £26.99/$29.95/€29.99. Says Coffee Stain game director Oscar Jilsén, “We’re a small team and Satisfactory is a hugely ambitious project which we’ve had our heart set on creating for a long time. There will be bugs and flaws but we’ve reached a point in development where the game is stable enough to offer an awesome experience.”
Apparently a lot of the game is a minimum of prototyped, however we are able to count on a restricted set of options for the early entry construct, with bug-squishing and high quality of life fixes within the subsequent weeks.
According to this here roadmap, in direction of the top of April and into May, the plan is to increase the function set – the likes of “sulfur research chains,” “conveyor lifts,” nuclear thingies and – oh boy! – trains are talked about. Much afterward, a “complete narrative” is promised, however for now count on one thing pretty open-ended come March 19. It is multiplayer, for as much as 4 belt-strokers, in addition to singleplayer, you’ll be glad to know.
I’m because of have a looky-look at Satisfactory pretty quickly, and can replace you ASAP as to how aroused or in any other case I’m made by its chrome fixings, and whether or not or not it lives as much as its inclusion on our checklist of our most-anticipated games of 2019.
