Competitive Farming Simulator trundles onto screens today

The thrill of corn beneath your fingers. The drama of a well-executed tractor turn. The hush that falls over the crowd as players begin to reap their harvests. That’s right, Farming Simulator League, the competitive digital agriculture we’ve all been waiting for, has finally kicked off. Teams of three compete to prove themselves the very best efarmers around, growing, harvesting, and depositing hay to gather…

You can lose to a tractor rush in Farming Simulator’s esports mode

Not only does Farming Simulator 19's new esports mode have a pick & ban phase so teams can block rival farmers from driving their favourite tractors, it's possible to lose a match to a tractor rush. I couldn't imagine how developers Giants Software would turn their sedate till 'em up into a competitive game but they really have. The 3v3 mode has teams compete to…

Farming Simulator digs into esports with new league

Giants Software have announced that Farming Simulator 19 is moving into esports with the launch of its own league this year. Yes, I was also confused. It seems that following the success of the first series of Farming Simulator Championships last year, Giants Software have created the franchise's first, fully-fledged esports league.

Feature: The games the cool kids bought this week

Steam Charts – Blood From A Stone Edition

Hey, remember the good old days? Those giddy times I like to think of as last week? When the Charts felt fresh and new, filled with potential, as if any interesting game could take a top spot? Well, forget all that because it's all gone to shit again.

Feature: Charts and graphs and STATISTICS

Steam Charts: Christmas Miracle Edition

I don't what is this? How many? Are we sure we're in the right charts? This is definitely the Steam Charts, where the mad-brained broken people just buy the same four games over and over and over? Because something is up. People have only bought the same three games over and over!

Feature: Chart it good

Steam Charts: I Was On Holiday Last Week Edition

I, Alice Bee, have returned from a week off and everything has changed. Matt is in the office now, and complained about having to get up at 8.15am. This complaint made me furious and I am telling everyone. My desk has been moved. There is no milk in the fridge. I am confused, and I can't remember all the HTML codes to write this very…

Steam Charts: Do U Cyber Edition

Beep boop. I am the SteamChartBot, and welcome to the CYBERCHARTS. They're like the regular charts, but they have the word "CYBER" shouted at the start, and that makes them really bloody cool.

Steam Charts: The Other Alice Edition

Hello! This week John is doing a super secret special mission (playing a video game) so I, one of the other Alices, have taken over the Steam Charts. I am afraid that I do not put as much time as John into constructing elegant jokes that are several layers deep, though, which means you might even be able to tell which games are charting. I…

Farming Simulator 19 bwamp-bwamps a new trailer

Y'remember when folks were making Farming Simulator videos set to pounding electronic music, then irony slipped and loads of people realised they actually quite liked virtual harvesting? It might seem one of those folks has ended up working on the game, going by a new official trailer for Farming Simulator 19 which oontch-oontch-bwamp-bwamped out today. Turns out, yep, I still find that juxtaposition funny, and…

Farming Simulator 19 and the ethics of pesticide brands

I always skip over the details of licensed equipment manufacturers in industrial simulators, treating them largely as different paint schemes, but a new interview with Farming Simulator 19 creative director Thomas Frey makes me more far more interested in the issue than I ever thought I would be. Talking with our corporate siblings GamesIndustry.biz, Frey explained the difficulties of landing licenses, and, unexpectedly, some of…

Farming Simulator 19 announced, with shiny new horses

Skipping a whole number for this year's iteration of the popular farm-'em-up, Giants Software is looking to the future with Farming Simulator 19, which has just been announced for release this Autumn/Fall. By the sounds of it, it should be a  comprehensive update, with a "complete overhaul" of the graphics engine, new crops and farming activities, plenty of shiny tractors, and horses. You can hear…
