Satisfactory - entering Early Access 19/3

Post by Sly Boots » Tue Mar 12, 2019 1:19 pm

I'm sure most of us will be aware of this one after a much-publicised closed beta weekend just gone, with plenty of media coverage and Youtube let's plays going up in the past couple of days.

It does sound interesting - kind of blend of a first-person crafting/survival game (let's say Subnautica as my knowledge of the genre is not vast) and top-down games like Factorio. Basically you land on an alien world tasked with constructing high-level exotic items through creating an automated, self-sufficient production line:

The one kicker is at the end of the article. All together now: "Timed Epic store exclusive!"

It is becoming quite annoying to me now how many games I would otherwise be interested in are going to be locked away on a platform I have no intention of running for the next 12 months. But, hey, I can wait.

Watched some streamers play it and it looks like good fun. I've got my gaming all sewn up for this month though what with the Division 2 and Sekiro.

I was tempted to make this my first purchase on the Epic store and then in the thread of resetera I read someone say they had their credit card details stolen after their account was hacked and it reminded me of how unsecured the store still is.
