  1. Awesome news for FS17, the genre clearly isn’t that niche any more. I think there’s 2 new farming simulator IP’s coming out in 2017 that look good, Techland’s Pure Farming and Cattle & Crops.

  2. Very good to hear the small and excellent Nordic developer Frictional Games are doing well. But besides porting old games for financial reasons, I hope they also find time producing another masterpiece like SOMA.

  3. What a great achievement! Hopefully the increase in interest will generate more than just incremental improvements to the game. While it’s a lot of fun there’s so much more that can be done.

  4. Get ready for EA Farming next year, featuring exclusive John Deere vehicles.

  5. Probably bought it on disc copies because rural broadband is too slow to download it digitally!
