Farming Simulator 17 gets its playable debut at next month’s Gamescom.
Although Farming Simulator 17 was at E3, it wasn’t playable. The US authorities are rightly fussy about grains and pulses being brought into the country, so we think they perhaps requested that Focus Home Interactive, erm, cut out the interactive bit.
However, despair no more. GIANTS Software’s grain-growing, tractor driving and animal husbandry simulation will finally be playable at Gamescom 2016, taking place in Cologne between 17 – 21 August.
Farming Simulator 17 will be on the show floor at Booth B41 in Exhibition Hall 8. In addition to demo stations there will also be prize raffles and other activities for all virtual farming enthusiasts to enjoy.
And let’s hope they bring the plastic cow, too.

Set in the new location of Goldcrest Valley, Farming Simulator 17 features new farm animals, plus vehicles and machines from well-known manufacturers including Challenger, Fendt, Massey Ferguson and Valtra.
And for the first time, modding support – long popular with PC players of the series – will make its console debut.
Farming Simulator 17 is due for release on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC/Mac on 25 October, 2016.
