It’s The Farming Simulator Titanium Edition Trailer

By Jim Rossignol on October 12th, 2013 at 11:00 am.


Yes, it’s the Farming Simulator Titanium Edition trailer. What does that mean? It means a bunch of new farming machinery, new vehicles, and the capacity to have a more American-looking farm.

TITANIUM.

There’s a demo, of course.

    More American looking? Does that mean it’s all corn fields?

    • BTAxis says:

      Signs on the fences saying “trespassers will be shot”.

      • CookPassBabtridge says:

        But it will be with a LOVELY gun.
        Having said that, I live in Scotland and know tons of folk who own guns, and at least two of those that make their own ammo. Though neither of those two are scottish. And actually I only know three. Thank you for reading my informative post.

        • TheCrazyScot says:

          Another proud gun-toting redneck Scot here :)

        • Bedeage says:

          Tbh, almost no one ‘makes’ their own ammunition. By and large, people reload the brass (from rounds they have previously fired) with new bullets and powder. It is much cheaper and provides flexibility with the load composition – like building your own PC.

          You do get some more serious shooters who make their own lead bullets and paper patch them, but that technique is a bit niche nowadays.

          • Axess Denyd says:

            Eh, I don’t think it’s too far out of line to refer to reloading as “making ammunition”. A pile of bullets, a pile of brass, a container of primers, and a jug of powder are not ammunition (some restrictive legal definitions aside), and it takes definite effort to make it so.

            If loading pre-formed bullets into recycled brass isn’t “making ammunition”, then maybe melting lead isn’t either. I’m sure there’s someone out there who mines his own lead, gathers bat guano, makes charcoal and mines sulfur to make his own bullets and powder, but that seems a bit extreme. ;-)

          • The Random One says:

            I know a guy who makes ammunition from hydrogen using a particle collider.

          • LionsPhil says:

            I bet he didn’t build the particle collider himself out of foraged sticks, the fraud.

          • Axess Denyd says:

            When I have a particle collider, I will no longer need ammunition.

            You can have my higgs boson when you pry it from my cold, dead synchrotron?

        • CookPassBabtridge says:

          **stands back in awe and admires comment thread**

    • KDR_11k says:

      It just means that this is a backport of the console version’s new map to the PC version.

    • jrodman says:

      We also permit soy.

  2. McDan says:

    Does this mean you can farm metals? Or that certain farmable things will now be metal? The rare copper turnip or the iron wheat-stalk will now show?

  3. Drake Sigar says:

    Thought the vast majority of sales were in Europe. In any case, I love that these simulators are so successful. It’s such a contrast to what some of the self-proclaimed hardcore crowd would define as gaming. There truly is room for everything!

  4. Prolar Bear says:

    Replace the music with some Skrillex, add a pinch of Ahmadinejad and you have THE ultimate trailer.

    I’m surprised they still haven’t seized the chance to capitalize on the internet’s best video of the last 250 years (no need to repost it).

    I really don’t understand the draw of this sort of sim, but hey–if tedium is your thing, go for it. As for “American-looking,” I assume that you mean the US, which isn’t anything to get excited about, believe me. Most farmers here are taken for granted by the vast hordes of consumers that would starve and die if they had to do even a fraction of the work required to feed their fat asses.

    • dogsolitude_uk says:

      Wow, pure negativity:

      “I really don’t understand the draw of this sort of sim, but hey–if tedium is your thing, go for it.”

      Good old weasel words, the standby of Daily Mail columnists since 1904. Just because you don’t understand something, it doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist. I guess everyone has a different attention span. Zing! did you see what I just did there?

      “As for “American-looking,” I assume that you mean the US,”

      Yes, pedantry aside many people use the word ‘American’ as shorthand for ‘the United States of America’, whether or not it’s strictly correct, and differentiate it from other areas of the continent with ‘South America’ and ‘Canada’. Words change their meanings. A lot of people use ‘English’ when they should say ‘British’ for example, or ‘PC’ for ‘computer with Windows installed on it’ etc. You know it meant ‘US’, I know it meant ‘US’, this kind of pedantry gets us nowhere. I suspect you already knew the above, but you had to prove that you are smart, and everyone else is dumb.

      “which isn’t anything to get excited about, believe me.”

      That’s a matter of opinion. Yours will differ from that of others. People disagree. opinions are not necessarily objective facts.

      “Most farmers here are taken for granted by the vast hordes of consumers that would starve and die if they had to do even a fraction of the work required to feed their fat asses.”

      Surely you meant to say “Everyone is dumb apart from me. I hate the world. It’s going to hell in a handcart, kids these days don’t know they’re born, and I should know because I’m 17. God everyone’s so dumb and lazy, and to prove I’m different I’m going to b1tch about it”.

      The ‘jaded cynical gamer’ thing is soooo 2007.

      • almostDead says:

        Never fear, the internet thought police are here. Thank God for you.

        • dogsolitude_uk says:

          No need to be sarky. I was just taking issue with the unwarranted tone of the post. I believe I’m free to air my opinion of the previous poster’s opinion, right? This is after all what a discussion forum is for, I thought.

          The post is still, there, it has not been censored or deleted. I did not report it as spam or in any way request it’s deletion, phone the police or report him to the NSA. Nobody has been hooded and/or dragged away in the back of a van to be taken to a place of rendition. In fact nothing characteristic of oppressive regimes has happened here at all. To compare my response with the actions of the KGB or the Stasi is a little over the top I think.

          All that happened was that I took someone to task for being a bit snidey about people who like farming sims, which I thought was unfair, unnecessary and uncalled for on a post about, erm, farming sims.

          Still, thank God you’re here to set me right and police the forum for us all with references to George Orwell. I nearly got well out of hand there, drunk with the power of the ‘Reply’ button.

          [In case you were worried I'm not actually King of The Internet or anything, so if I disagree with someone on the internet nothing bad is *actually* going to happen to them.]

          • almostDead says:

            Damn dude, you have managed to turn a paragraph and a sentence, one aimed at you and one not, into two lengthy responses. What is really going on for you? Way to overreact. Someone is wrong on the internet somewhere else! Quick go!

          • dogsolitude_uk says:

            @almostDead: You asked “what is really going on for you”? Not a lot really. I just type and think a lot. Each response was just a minute or so of typing in between doing other stuff. No biggy as far as I’m concerned. :)

        • Tams80 says:

          Perhaps you should be thrown in the online prison cell for not appreciating a humorous rebuttal.

          • ShinySpoons says:

            It was a very succinct, piercing reply to a common, annoying, internet personality.

            As a Canadian I hate it when Europeans (and they’re inevitably euros) use such words as “USain” or implying that everyone in the western hemisphere think of themselves as American. I would be horrified to be called American. (Sorry americans). Damnit, I just realized I apologized for a harmless joke. God I’m so canadian.

          • JamesTheNumberless says:

            It has nothing to do with where people are from really, just what their experience has been and how they’re feeling. Getting uptight over the US being referred to as America is as silly as it is to think there would be no pejorative connotations to calling a Canadian an “American.” I know of nobody outside the context of RPS who even knows the term USian, isn’t it just a way to wind up Americans? Insults are more fun when they’re vague and you can’t quite put your finger on why they’re insulting :)

  6. Didden says:

    Doe’s this mean they’ve ‘combined’ some stuff together…

  7. Boosterh says:

    Going American? More like going mainstream! I mean look at 0:53! Those harvesters are clearly going across the rows of beans! Who harvests across rows?!

  8. Colonel J says:

    I am waiting for the franchise to go FPS

    MAXIMUM TRACTOR

  9. Barberetti says:

    Pfft! Call me when there’s the option to whip out the ol’ shotgun and blast some townies dog for worryin’ my sheep and then I’ll be interested.

  10. LTK says:

    Nice cattle animations.

  11. Jerppa says:

    I’m tempted to buy this because I have never owned a “Titanium Edition” of anything.

  12. Lord Zeon says:

    Wait, what do you mean by “more American”? Do you mean to tell me that other countries run industrialized farms too?

  13. Panda Powered says:

    All that titanium put weird thoughts in my head.
    Farming Simulator: Cocainum Edition. 1983. Drive bulldozers in the jungle. Fight government forces. Process your products and traffic them to american yuppies with the help of CIA.
    Sometimes hang people from helicopters. Also Disco soundtrack.

  14. Tams80 says:

    Sheep and lens flare. What more could you want?

  15. 2late2die says:

    That is one sexy farming simulator! I hope the developers are working on Oculus Rift support because mmm damn, papa gotta get all personal with one of dem sheep!

    >_>

    Who said that?!?

    <_<

  16. rubywright says:

    It always makes me proud of my country, such excellent software being developed here!

    I remember this when it was all 16-bit fields.

    It’s only the game GTAV should have been, that’s all.
