Satisfactory has transitioned to Unreal Engine 5.1 with update 8

Satisfactory has received an engine upgrade, and the game now looks better than ever

Satisfactory’s update 8 is now available within the game’s Experimental branch, allowing players to get a early look at the game’s new Unreal Engine 5.1 version ahead of the updates finalised release. 

Thanks to update 8, Coffee Stain Studios has now upgraded Satisfactory to look better than ever with new Unreal Engine 5 features like World Partitioning, Nanite, Chaos Physics, TSR (Temporal Super Resolution), and Lumen. These features will make Satisfactory look better than ever, at least for gamers who have high-end hardware that can utilise these features at playable framerates. 

Previously, Satisfactory utilised Unreal Engine 4. Now that the game uses Unreal Engine 5, Coffee Stain Studios can add further polish to their game and continue updating the game with modern features without any issues. Instead of simply creating “Satisfactory 2” using Unreal Engine 5.1, they moved their existing game over to the new engine to give them a better platform for future updates.  

Satisfactory’s Unreal Engine 5.1 update is now available for users of the game’s experimental update branch. Update 8 for Satisfactory will be available to all players once the update is finalised and is proven to be stable.
