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.

Vineyard farmers can upgrade their fleet of specialized machines, while machine enthusiasts look forward to a boxed beacon light. Publisher and developer GIANTS Software announces a new DLC with the ERO Grapeliner Series 7000 as well as physical merchandise to illuminate fans’ gaming setups. 

Juicy: High-Performance Grape Harvester 

With the ERO Grapeliner Series 7000, GIANTS Software and the German manufacturer of viticulture technology introduce a brand-new, high-performance grape harvester to Farming Simulator 22 – get a first glimpse in the above teaser trailer. Harvesting the delicious fruit with extreme care and efficiency, it’s ideal for juicy businesses on lush hillsides striped with vines. It will be available in the form of a DLC on August 23rd for PC and consoles. 

Illuminating: Boxed Beacon Light 

PC players with an affection for colorful ambiance lighting look forward to the official Farming Simulator Beacon Light. The orange-colored beacon, which is usually placed on tractors and other machines, reacts to machinery in compatible games like Farming Simulator 22. When connected to the PC via USB, the beacon will light up as soon as players light the virtual ones in the game. Every Beacon Light includes a download code for the ERO Grapeliner Series 7000.

"With the official Beacon Light, we are announcing the fourth physical product this year!”; comments Boris Stefan, Head of Publishing at GIANTS Software. “These continuous releases underpin our ambitions as a publisher while we continue to expand our portfolio around the Farming Simulator brand."

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.
