The original post can be viewed on Satisfactory's Discord and Reddit.


Hello Pioneers!

As promised, the Experimental Build is now available to everyone who has purchased the game. It will show up as an extra library item additionally to the Satisfactory Early Access.

It includes some nifty features that we want you to try out and give us feedback on, such as the Conveyor Lifts and the new research chains Quartz and Sulfur.

Keep in mind that this version is more unstable than our other releases, so consider backing up any saves you want to try with it before loading them up in the Experimental build.

Hope you all enjoy the new features and fixes! Share your feedback and the bugs you are experiencing on the questions site:
