Coffee Stain Publishing has just announced the sixth update for the popular early access base-building game Satisfactory. As the game gets ever closer to its final 1.0 release, the developers are releasing the final bits of content that we can expect to see in the full build.
Some of the main features include the new Spire Coast area, which will be located in the northern part of the map. This is a new tropical area surrounded by tall towers, which should make for some interesting challenges when it comes to vertical construction.
Here’s a full rundown of everything coming in this new update:
Spire Coast and Swamp Area Reviews
For starters, a previously rather barren part of the north coast is getting a stunning upgrade to its terrain and flora to live up to its name: The Spire Coast. A serene tropical coastal area, dominated by large towers that can create an interesting challenge for vertically aligned factory builders.
The already bleak Swamp has received a complete overhaul of plant life for the final version of this disturbing and noxious area. While the terrain has only changed in minor ways and the resources remain the same, the environment of the Swamp is much more refined.
Coffee Stain Studios is working to further polish the atmosphere of the world of Satisfactory by improving the lighting, sky, and weather in MASSAGE-2(AB)b. While this is an ongoing process, specific improvements will be visible in the early Dune Desert, Grass Fields, and Northern Forest areas. In general, the cloud cover and the sky have seen improvements and Update 6 seems to come with a risk of rain… something that is not yet confirmed but on the horizon.
Creature and equipment upgrades.
MASSAGE-2(AB)b has been inundated with new and improved creatures. A lot of work has gone into improving the visuals and behaviors of the creatures and adding new additions to the wildlife, creating a more immersive exploration experience. To help address these new and improved threats, improvements have been made to the combat mechanics. In particular, Update 6 will contain changes to equipment features and additions to give players more tools to engage in combat. These updates will primarily affect exploration, but there may be more gear changes that will also improve the factory ride.
Updated maps and more!
The player map will be updated with a variety of UI improvements to make it easier to use and for pioneers to plan their expeditions and factory layouts. The radar tower is getting an overhaul to make it really useful for scouting. Because it wasn’t before.
Satisfactory is now available on PC as an early access title.
