Satisfactory Patch 6 Release Notes
Update 6 (working title), is going to be all about improving the exploration aspect of Satisfactory. This is going to be a smaller update and it’s going to be an update that may stick around in experimental a bit longer than before as we work on it.
It might seem odd that when we finally break the silence after so long, we’re doing it by announcing a smaller update. We have been working on a lot of things since the last update we launched. Some things are going in this update, but many things may come later down the line.
This update will focus on improving the following things in the game
- Environmental changes
- Creature improvements
- Equipment additions
- Improvements to the in-game map menu
- General technical improvements
- (Clock Speed rebalance)
To kick things off, a formerly quite barren part of the northern coast is receiving a breath-taking update of its terrain and flora to fully live up to its name: The Spire Coast. This is a completely new biome, a serene tropical coastal area, dominated by large spires that can create an interesting challenge for vertically aligned factory builders.
The swamp has received a full plant-life overhaul to achieve the final version of this unsettling and noxious area. While the terrain has only changed in minor ways and resources remain the same, the vibe of the Swamp is far more refined.
We’re also working on further polishing the atmosphere of MASSAGE-2(AB)b by improving lighting, sky and weather(!). In general, the cloud coverage and sky has seen improvements and we’re currently working on possibly having rain in the game. We don’t know for sure if that will make it in but we’ll see what happens!
MASSAGE-2(AB)b has become inundated with new and improved critters. A lot of work has been done to improve creature visuals and behaviors and add new additions to the wildlife, creating a more immersive exploration experience.
To help tackle these new upgraded threats, improvements have been made to combat mechanics. Most notably, Update 6 will contain feature equipment changes and additions to give players more tools to engage in combat. These updates will mainly impact exploration, but there might be more equipment changes coming that will improve factory traversal as well.
Improvements to the in-game map menu
The player map will be upgraded with a range of UI improvements to make it easier to use and for pioneers to plan their expeditions and factory layouts. The Radar Tower will get an overhaul, to actually make it useful for exploration. Because it wasn’t before.
General technical improvements
There’s also a couple of technical improvements to some of the underlying systems we’re currently working on that will hopefully improve the overall experience of the game for some folks. There’s also, of course, a couple of bug fixes and network improvements here and there, we’re always working on that.
