Competitive Farming Simulator trundles onto screens today

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…
