New Farming Simulator 17 trailer details animal husbandry

Farming Simulator 17

New Farming Simulator 17 gameplay trailer shows how to care for your animals.

For the first time in the Farming Simulator series pigs will join cows, sheep and chickens down on the farm. The new trailer demonstrates how they can be transported in one of the game’s many licenced vehicles which are beautifully presented using Forza-esque camera angles. Vehicle manufacturers include Fendt, Challenger, Massey Ferguson and Valtra, to name a few.

Food and upkeep is important and farmers who properly feed and bed their animals will be rewarded with more wool from sheep flocks and more milk from cow herds. Keeping up with the needs of your animals means money-motivated farmers can make a profit by buying small groups of livestock, and selling them on in larger numbers once they breed. Just don’t say your plans out loud within earshot of those little piggies.


Farming Simulator 17– which is being developed by Giants Software – will be released 25th October 25 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. Console versions support mods for the first time along with online multiplayer for up to six simultaneous farmers. PC owners can look forward to online support for up to 16 farmers in the field.

Preorder Farming Simulator 17 on Amazon.
