Simulation 06 June 2017

Another installment in the annually released farming simulator series developed by GIANTS Software. This time, however, the creators decided to develop a game exclusively for handheld devices like PS Vita or Nintendo 3DS. In terms of mechanics, Farming Simulator 18 highly resembles the previous installments, especially the handheld version of Farming Simulator 16. The game sees the players running their farms in an attempt to make a profitable business out of it. To achieve this, the players have to take care of a number of things, such as soil and plant cultivation, harvesting and selling the crops, and finally the successive development of the farm. Farming Simulator 18 does not lack the series’ representative feature, namely a wide range of licensed agricultural machinery of the world’s top makers, which are available for the players to utilize while working in the field.

Farming Simulator 17 is another installment in the series of simulators of farm. This time, the game was published by Focus Home Interactive, but the development was still carried out by GIANTS Software, known from the previous parts of this series. The mechanics remain unchanged - the players become farmers, who need to take good care of their establishment. During the game, much attention has to be paid to the economic side of the management - the right equipment needs to be purchased, used for sawing, gathering crops, and moving the goods around. Traditionally, the player can control many different machines, all with official licenses from real manufacturers, and personally take care of various tasks in the field. The new installment obviously introduces some changes and novelties. Contrary to previous games, Farming Simulator 17 was released on PC, XONE and PS4 simultaneously.

An official expansion to the farming simulator published in 2014 by Giants Software.

This add-on does not introduce any changes to mechanics. During the gameplay the player takes control of tractors, harvesters, and trucks produced by such manufacturers as Zetor, Tatra, Rostselmash, and Farmtech. In contrast to the Gold version, there are no new farming areas in Eastern Europe, yet the remaining elements from both DLCs are included, so players can make use of new equipment and 20 new farming machines.

A complete edition of 2014's Farming Simulator 15, featuring the Official Expansion DLC and developed by GIANTS Software. As usual, the player's main tasks here are to sow fields, breed animals and buy gradually better equipment for money earned from selling crops and other goods. The game offers three different environments with different climatic conditions: one is a Central European location, the second was inspired by Scandinavian landscapes, and the last resembles Eastern Europe (this one was introduced in the Official Expansion DLC). What is new in Farming Simulator 15, is an opportunity to manage forests - adequate equipment was added for wood cutting, processing, and transportation. Also, the game brings new machines from real-life companies, such as New Holland, Ponsse, Zetor, Tatra, Rostselmash or Farmtech. Farming Simulator 15: Gold offers both a solo experience and a multiplayer component for up to 16 players connected either via the Internet or LAN.

Simulation 06 August 2015

Another installment of the farming simulation game series from GIANTS software. Contrary to most of the major entries in the franchise, Farming Simulator 16 was created solely with the PS Vita handheld console and mobile devices in mind. In the game, we traditionally assume the role of farm owner, and our task is to turn his possessions into a true agricultural empire. Achieving this requires us to sow and harvest, and then invest the money we’ve earned into the farm’s development as well as new vehicles and devices. The title features over 50 fully licensed agricultural machines of various type that we can personally drive while working in the field. Compared to its predecessor, the game offers new sorts of crops, but the biggest novelty is the introduction of forests, along with a pretty big set of hardware for felling and processing trees.
