Factorio has received a new update on August 18th, 2021! This is mostly for bug fixes, so there isn’t anything super exciting. However, if you’ve had any issues with the game in the past, hopefully they have been resolved! The only real chance is the addition of Titillium style font for Cyrillic languages to the game.

If you don’t have the update yet, you can get it by opening Steam and checking the Downloads area of the platform. If you have automatic updates enabled, it should start downloading right away.
