This year's presentation of Giants Software's Farming Simulator 19 (FS19) featured its own trailer accompanied by gameplay showcase (all videos can be seen below). It is not the first time Farming Simulator is a part of Gamescom, and I'm surprised how popular the game is.
At first glance, one wouldn't assume that having your own virtual world that is all about farming is going to gather a lot of followers. Existing for more than a decade, the Farming Simulator series shows that farming life can be a good way to relax, just like fishing. What I've discovered is the game has quite a following actually. Farming Simulator has a strong modding community. The release date is November 20 this year, and you already have modding communities with farming simulator 2019 Mods or farming simulator 19 mods that gather news and write about the upcoming game too.
As for the Gamescom, the game is said to have a complete overhaul of its graphics engine; the franchise’s most extensive vehicle roster ever (Case IH, New Holland, Challenger, Fendt, Massey Ferguson, Valtra, Krone, Deutz-Fahr and many more brands); new American and European environments; and new farming activities, including new machinery and crops with cotton and oat. Some of the aforementioned can be seen in the videos below.
