If you’re not already in the know, put yourself in the right circles and you’ll find that Farming Simulator is a big deal. Offering the ability to control dozens of mechanical beasts, build your own farm and reap the rewards, for many, that simply can’t be turned down. And with the release of Farming Simulator 22 – Platinum Edition, it might be a good time to dust off the tractor or put on your overalls for the very first time.
Out today on Xbox, PlayStation and PC consoles, for those of you who have already installed the base game and are enjoying the game we rated the rear 4/5 in 2021 – brand new content that is part of the Platinum Edition can be purchased as a Platinum Expansion, while those of you new to the title can purchase the Platinum Edition. We, of course, have all the costs at the foot of this piece.
Perhaps the most eye-catching Platinum content hitting the field today comes in the form of more than 40 new vehicles and tools, from the nearly 150 manufacturers the developers at GIANTS Software have on board. This now brings the total number of vehicles and implements to over 500 – whatever job you decide to do, from sowing to harvesting to transporting, there really is the right tool for the job. .
In addition to the many European and American landscapes that you can contemplate while farming in Farming Simulator 22, the Platinum Edition/Expansion also introduces us to a whole new region. Silverrun Forest is a new map inspired by the Pacific Northwest, full of forests. In fact, much of your work in Silverrun will involve forestry and carpentry: who knows, you might even be caught making a dockside boat!
“One year since the initial release of Farming Simulator 22. A year full of additional content – many of which are completely free – leading to one of the most ambitious gameplay expansions we’ve ever made,” comments the head of the edition of GIANTS Software Boris Stéphane.
