Satisfactory is a game that can be enjoyed solo. But there’s no denying that it is more fun when playing with friends. So, what better way to do that than to have some cool music blasting in the background? That’s now possible with the new Boom Box added in Update 6.

The Boom Box is a brand new item in Satisfactory that gives you the ability to play tunes for you and your buddies. This, along with several tapes, can be purchased in the AWESOME Shop. More tapes are scattered all over the world, so you have to find them if you want to expand your music catalog.

Aside from being able to play music, the Boom Box also has a Turbo Bass Feature that sends off a small shockwave when used.

The To-Do List got some nice improvements in Update 6 as well. One, it can now be accessed from any menu by clicking on the right side of the screen. Next, you can write personal notes that are only visible to you, so if you want to be reminded of a particular task, you can do just that. The To-Do List also allows you to create notes that can be seen and edited by anyone in a multiplayer session.
