Frequently Asked Questions

How do I buy this game then?

You can get it from Factorio's Purchase page, Steam, GOG.com or Humble Store.

If I buy the game on your Purchase page will I be able to get a Steam key?

Yes, that is possible. After you have bought the game you can connect it to your Steam account at your Factorio's profile page and then have your Steam key emailed to you. Linking to the Steam account is an anti-fraud mechanism. However, this free Steam key only applies to purchases made directly on our webpage: any purchases from 3rd party retailers are not eligible for a Steam key.

Yes, it is possible. In game you will have the option to register an account on our webpage.

It is strongly recommended to create the account with the same username you have on Steam already.
