The Engineer is who the player plays as in Satisfactory. The engineer works for and is property of FICSIT Inc. All engineers are female. There is no hunger system in the game, as food is used to regain health.
The game is played from first-person unless driving a vehicle or traveling with the Hyper Tube, where the camera transitions to a third-person point of view.
In the future there may be some kind of top-down view for building. Virtual reality isn't supported.

Multiple Engineers can play together in multiplayer. Engineers can both hurt (PVP) and revive each other (without the dead Engineer teleporting back to the HUB).
- The engineer's e-mail address (and assumably the employee number) can be seen in the codex: "firstname.lastname@example.org". In a multiplayer game, the email doesn't change.
- There is currently no character customization, however, there will likely be some form of basic customization in the future, such as jumpsuit color selection.
