Satisfactory by Coffee Stain Studios

You start as an engineer that has landed on a distant land, with no no factories and the goal is to build the biggest automated factory you can. To do this you need to gather resources and build smaller factories to create the pieces you need for the larger factories.

The map is quite large allowing for expansive building as well as a transportation network.  The game has been developed as a 1st person build game instead of the usual top-down.  This game can also be played in co-op.

A closed Alpha is planned for the coming months, if interested you can sign up at www.satisfactorygame.com

What can you say about this one besides it’s another Battle Royale style game and initially looks to be a lot like PUBG in design.

Automaton Games CEO James Thompson described the primary difference to be the depth of the game.  There is more information for players to determine where players have been, such as footprints and broken foliage.  The 5-man squad play can also have up to 1000 players.

Star Control Origins by Stardock

Patrick Shaw, Director of Production described the games as an open universe action RPG which allows you to explore an infinite universe.  You will be able to land on stars and planets as well as explore those environments.  The entire universe is being simulated all the time, so the game is ever changing.

Modding is going to be a big part of Star Control Origins.  You will be able to create your own ships, planets and galaxies that you can share with your friend or even take your ship into battle.

The game is currently available for pre-order on Steam and GOG with official launch announced for Sept 20, 2018.
