If you aren’t already aware, put yourself in the right circles and you’ll find that Farming Simulator is a big deal. Offering up the opportunity to control dozens of mechanical beasts, building up your own farm and reaping the rewards, for many this just simply cannot be turned down. And with the release of Farming Simulator 22 – Platinum Edition, it may just be the right time to dust off the tractor, or put on your overalls for the very first time.
Releasing today on Xbox, PlayStation and PC consoles, for those of you with the base game already installed – and enjoying the game we gave a 4/5 score to back in 2021 – the all-new content coming as part of the Platinum Edition can be purchased as a Platinum Expansion, whereas those of you new to the title can pick up the Platinum Edition. We, of course, have all the costs at the foot of this piece.
Perhaps the most eye-catching of Platinum content making its way to the fields today comes in the form of more than 40 new vehicles and tools, from the some 150 manufacturers that developers GIANTS Software have on board. This now takes the total number of vehicles and tools to a whopping 500+ – whatever job you decide needs doing, from sowing, to harvesting, to transportation, there really is the right tool for the job.
In addition to the numerous European and American landscapes that you can gaze at whilst farming in Farming Simulator 22, the Platinum Edition / Expansion also introduces us to a brand new region. Silverrun Forest is a new map inspired by the Pacific Northwest, full to the brim with forests. In fact, much of your work in Silverrun will involve forestry and carpentry: who knows, you may even be found making a boat down at the dock!
“One year since the initial release of Farming Simulator 22. One year full of additional content – lots of it completely free of charge – leading up to one of the gameplay-wise most ambitious expansions we ever did”, comments GIANTS Software’s Head of Publishing Boris Stefan.
