Cultivated to be bigger and better, Farming Simulator 22 will offer more depth thanks to a variety of new additions and therefore the highest extent of player freedom in the history of the series.

Once again, the family-friendly game series takes a leap forward. With new features and improvements, Farming Simulator 22 will allow every aspiring farmer to creatively build their farm no matter the age or real - life profession. Either on their own, or cooperatively in multiplayer for up to 8 players on consoles and 16 on PC, Mac and Stadia.

New crops, new maps, new machines, and new brands are just the beginning of what players can expect. And on top of that, it is getting snowy, too - players should prepare for the exciting addition of seasonal cycles – as well as other features to be announced soon!

Two new maps plus an updated alpine Erlengrat map will put emphasis on different kinds of farming operations through the seasons.

With a set of more than 400 machines and tools from more than 100 authentic agricultural brands including new categories, players can look forward to an improved and realistic-as-ever simulation. But even for new players, it will be easy to dive into agriculture, animal husbandry (including cuter animals) and forestry.

Millions of virtual farmers are tilling the fields, as Farming Simulator 22 reaches the next milestone since release on November 22, 2021. The latest game in the series, self-published for the first time by GIANTS Software, continues to enjoy loads of new players in 2022, as the publisher/developer reports three million copies of Farming Simulator 22 sold globally within nine weeks.

“I’d like to thank our community. Our modders, influencers, gamers and partners. All those who play a role in sustaining our growing ecosystem”, comments Christian Ammann, CEO of GIANTS Software. “We are excited to embrace new opportunities and projects in 2022 – with new content to extend the experience of simulated agriculture and Farming Simulator 22.”

The Year 1 Season Pass will see the game grow by introducing new content packs and one expansion. In addition, free content updates will extend the game even further. The first content update, including three new brands and 16 machines, is already available to download.

Based on the GIANTS Engine 9, Farming Simulator 22 features many technical improvements such as more realistic AI behavior and richer worlds. Thanks to those worlds, players will be drawn even deeper into the virtual farming lifestyle. For example, motor sounds of their tractors appear even more realistic through acoustic gear selection and graduated reverberation.

Better performance on all platforms: with DirectX 12 support on Windows, texture streaming, multi- threading optimization, occlusion culling and temporal anti-aliasing amidst other optimizations, the newest Farming Simulator will receive a performance boost on all systems laying the foundation for even more complex mod customization to enjoy more content.

Farming Simulator 22 is available for PC, PS5, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, Xbox One, Mac and Stadia.
