Assuming the role of a young farmer, experience the 18 hours-a-day lifestyle of running a busy farm in the middle of beautiful, rolling countryside. You start the game by choosing from a small collection of basic vehicles and machinery to explore your fairly sparce farmland which measures a mere 4 km2. Playing in Career mode, your aim is to whip the farm into shape, expand your fleet of farm machinery and become as successful a farmer as possible. As you progress through the game youll need to visit the local agricultural machinery store to trade in your old vehicles and equipment for newer kit. You can choose between seven beautifully detailed tractors, four combine harvesters and over 20 tools such as a plough, seeder, baler and a self loading wagon.
By way of a licensing deal with the AGCO Corporation, owner of the high specification Fendt brand, Farming Simulator features wonderfully detailed tractors and combine harvesters. A similar collaboration with Pottinger allows for the inclusion of many authentically detailed agricultural plant and machinery.
If this incredible variety still isnt enough for you, you can download a vast array of vehicles, equipment and other modifications via the internet.
Farming Simulator also contains various missions and tutorials to complete as well as featuring a realistic day-and-night cycle with changing weather conditions. You can also activate computer-controlled vehicles which will help you get your work done.
