Next week brings us to Gamescom 2016 in Köln, Germany, a landmark for Farming Simulator, where the game has been met with huge success for the past seven years, gathering hundreds of thousands of German players and constituting an important component of this passionate gaming community. Gamescom 2016 is thus a perfect opportunity for Farming Simulator 17 to return to the spotlight and meet its German audience, who will, like every year, access and play a preview version of the new game at the huge Farming Simulator booth (Hall 8 – B41)! The booth promises this year to once again get the public hall rocking!
Players will also be able to try Farming Simulator 17 at the PlayStation booth, while journalists are welcome to attend an official presentation of the game by the developers at the Focus Home Interactive booth (Hall 3.2 – D16).
In the meantime, have a sneak peek at Farming Simulator 17, its new environment and some of its new features with the Gamescom Trailer! Among these new features, livestock farming gets even richer, with the introduction of a new animal type: pigs. The transportation system has also been significantly deepened — with a new railway system featuring drivable trains — giving players an alternate way of transporting a large variety and quantity of goods between different production and selling spots. All of this is located in the new environment: Goldcrest Valley.
These are just a few of the new features of Farming Simulator 17, which also includes over 250 vehicles and tools from more than 75 brands, making Farming Simulator 17 the most complete farming simulation ever created. We will unveil more in the coming weeks, until the official PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC releases on the 25th of October, 2016.
