Early Access game Factorio
an upcoming change that will represent the final price of this
manufacturing simulation as it emerges from Early Access (thank Jeremy). The
Windows, macOS, and Linux game us currently $20.00 USD, but they say this will
rise to $30.00 (or the local equivalent) on April 16th. They explain the change,
and remind everyone they have a strict policy against discounted sales:
Version 0.16 has become stable, and this means that there is one last
step for us to reach the 0.17 which will probably become 1.0 version. Then
Factorio will finally step out of the Early Access zone. This will take some
months but the roadmap is clear for us.
We feel that now is a good time to adjust the price of the game. The price of
the game has been growing steadily together with the game becoming bigger, more
stable and polished. After careful consideration, we have decided to set the new
price of the game to 30 USD (or your regional equivalent). This change will
become effective as of 16th of April 2018. This is the final Factorio price
update, unless something unforeseen happens, so it will also be the price for
the game for 1.0 release.
As you probably know we have a strict no sale policy. The game will not go on
sale on Steam or any other platform. This basically means that purchasing before
the 16th of April 2018 is the only way to buy the game cheaper than the
increased release price.
