Farming Simulator 22: Collector's Edition, production chains & US map revealed
Limited Collector’s Edition includes a functioning beacon light
Collectors need to be quick when Farming Simulator 22 releases this year – as a limited Collector’s Edition will be available! The game, self-published by developer and publisher GIANTS Software, will come to PC, Mac, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One
In limited quantity, the PC version will be available as a stylish Collector’s Edition including a branded, high-quality beacon light. Players operating heavy machinery can enjoy the illuminating orange light as it turns on in real-time corresponding to the vehicles' beacon light in-game. Also included are two posters, 24 brand stickers, and new modding tutorials. Depending on the region, fans can enjoy a Massey Ferguson 8S, Fendt 900 Vario, Case IH Magnum 340 or Zetor Crystal on the cover of the standard edition.
Bread and butter: Production chains expand farming operations
A new economic layer is added to Farming Simulator 22 by introducing production chains. Players can deliver their harvested crops to various shops and businesses for processing. The grain mill, for example, can now produce flour to be delivered to the bakery, starting a lucrative chain of production resulting in fine bread or delicious cake.
Depending on the goods the players want to produce, they must provide the respective factory with multiple resources, like butter or sugar, first. After the production of sellable goods, players are able to further distribute them to points of sale like the supermarket. While some are already present, the players can also build them themselves to expand their operations.
Hills and landmarks: US map offers vast open space to build farms
Farming Simulator 22 includes two new maps plus an updated alpine Erlengrat map. Inspired by the US Midwest region, the now revealed Elmcreek offers players large fields and vast open space to build their farms on. Virtual farmers can look forward to numerous fields with varying shapes and sizes, authentically embedded in a scenic US landscape. The authentic out-of-town setting features rivers and underpasses in hilly areas, a gushing waterfall and a proper highway surrounded by a Baseball Stadium, huge grain silos, a gas station and other buildings shaping the skyline visible from the players' expanding farmlands.
