Farming Simulator 22 has been officially confirmed by publisher GIANTS Software today, and the game is expected to release in Q4 2021. The confirmed platforms include PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PC, Mac, and Stadia. Farming Simulator 22 will feature two new maps for players to build and run their farms on, as well as an updated alpine Erlengrat map where players will have to deal with the shifting seasons to really get the best out of their farms.
GIANTS Software CEO Christian Ammann said:
“We are further growing with our games and the upcoming result of our cultivated ambitions will be a milestone in the series’ history as well as our company, which developed into a self-determined publisher in full control of its product.”
Farming Simulator 22 will include over 400 machines and tools from more than 100 agricultural brands. The game will also be easier for new players to get into so they can learn about growing crops, breeding and raising animals, and managing forestry. Farming Simulator 22 will be built on GIANTS Engine 9 allowing for more realistic AI interactions, and worlds that are more detailed from visuals to sound. The game will also support DirectX 12 on PC so performance is improved and allows for better mod customisation support.
The last review we had was for Farming Simulator 2019, and in it Gazza wrote:
“I have mixed feelings about Farming Simulator 2019. For a biennial release, I would initially have expected more, so this might start off feeling like a large expansion rather than a new game. Get further into the game, you’ll start to enjoy the new features and vehicles, and the little improvements build up to what is still an enjoyable farming game at heart. For newcomers, the initial grind might be off putting to some, but the wealth of things you can do in the game will keep you entertained for hours.”
