Satisfactory Launches Christmas-Themed Event For December

Coffee Stain Studios released a new update for Satisfactory this week as they have launched a month-long holiday event for you to enjoy. The event is called FICS*MAS, and they have been running it in the game for a few years now, as the factory-building simulator basically turns into an automated advent calendar for the month of December. We got the rundown of everything you can take part in during this event for you below, as it will be running all the way until December 31st, 2022.
