Farming Simulator 17 crops up on Steam

Farming Sim 17

Farming Simulator 17 has released on Steam. You can bet the developers are feeling ploughed. Right, that’s enough of that. So if you’ve ever fancied holding up traffic on a blind corner on some country road, today is your lucky day.

Farming Sim 17 takes the respectable outdoors trade into the open-world, asking you to tend your crops, see to your livestock and more across hundreds of acres of land tucked away somewhere in rural North America.

Here you can drive over 250 farming vehicles and equipment from over 75 manufacturers, including new brands such as Challenger, Fendt, Valtra or Massey Ferguson.

“Harvest many types of crops, including for the first time sunflowers and soy beans,” says the official blurb. “Take care of your livestock – cows, sheep, chickens and now pigs – take part in forestry, and sell your products to expand your farm! Transport your goods with trucks and trailers, or load and drive trains to reach your destination.”

You can play the sim in online co-op with up to 16 other players. If that all sounds good, pick it up on Steam for $34.99. If you buy it before November 1, you get two bonus tractors.
