Farming Simulator 22 is now available on PC and consoles. Developer and publisher GIANTS Software introduces the most extensive agricultural simulation to date, including a multitude of new features. From production chains forming agricultural empires, to crossplay multiplayer. The accompanying Launch Trailer tells the emotional story of an aspiring new farmer.
Farms are growing bigger - just like the series
Farming Simulator 22 enhances the farming experience on every level: Seasonal farming adds (snowy) challenges, production chains more depth, new ground working mechanics more agricultural diversity, and an improved sound design more immersion.
A brand-new build mode and character creation tool promote creativity and player freedom on three distinct maps, inspired by southern France, the US-Midwest and the European Alpine region. All types of farmers will find the perfect landscape to build their farm and dive into agriculture, forestry and animal husbandry. It is their choice whether they focus on the large variety of crops or tend to cows, sheep, chicken, pigs, and horses – even bees. Thanks to cross-platform multiplayer, it’s also easier than ever to cooperate.
With over 400 authentically digitized vehicles and tools from brands like Case IH, CLAAS, Fendt, John Deere, Massey Ferguson, New Holland, Valtra and many more, the fleet of agricultural machinery grows, too. New machine categories allow farmers to create lush vineyards and olive orchards. Grapes, olives and sorghum are added to the range of crops.
Cultivated, fertilized, and now self-published
Christian Ammann, CEO of GIANTS Software, proudly comments: “It’s an amazing accomplishment that marks a striking milestone on multiple layers of the company’s history: Farming Simulator 22 is our first and globally self-published title, it’s the most extensive entry of the series to date, and it’s the result of our huge ambitions that will nourish our plans to realize even more potential in the future. It’s not just a milestone, it’s a stepping stone, as well.”
GIANTS Software also improved the foundation: On the technical side, the new GIANTS Engine 9 features DirectX 12, NVIDIA DLSS support, texture streaming and a lot more to optimize graphics and performance on all platforms. The official mod support, for PC and consoles, is also guaranteed. Just like with previous versions, the developers themselves test user content to publish their creations for free on the in-game ModHub.
Farming Simulator 22 is available for PC, Mac, PlayStation®5 (PS5™), Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation®4 and Xbox One. A Year 1 Season Pass is available to extend the game with even more content in the future. Visit the official Farming Simulator website and the GIANTS Software press area for more information.
