Tucked away inside Focus Home Interactive’s E3 booth is a plastic cow and a barn to promote Farming Simulator 17.
There’s also a constant stream of expo attendees at the booth looking for more information on the forthcoming release from Giants Software. It’s a quiet indication of how popular the agricultural simulation genre has become.
The new E3 trailer will surely ramp up their hype levels, in no small part due to its wonderful use of Gangstagrass’s All for One.
Farming Simulator 17 promises a new farming environment and gameplay mechanics, plus a range of new licensed vehicles from Challenger, Fendt, Massey Ferguson, and Valtra. This brings the total number of vehicles to over 200.
The console edition of the game will also introduce mod support, a feature that has proved popular among the PC playing community.
Farming Simulator 17 will be released at the end of 2016 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
