Mechanics

As every year, the new edition brings a whole bunch of upgrades allowing total command over the virtual farm. There are new crops now: sunflower and soy. The players can now use “their own” hands instead of machines to do the simplest tasks, such as relocating wood. A new possibility to earn money are “side-quests”, offered by other farmers, controlled by the AI. A lot of new hardware has appeared in this game: the developers give the players over 200 machines from 60 fully licensed manufacturers, including both companies already known from the previous parts (New Holland or Ponsse), as well as entirely new (Massey-Ferguson ir Lely). The vehicles can be upgraded both in terms of visuals, as well as technical capabilities. Machines can now be leased as well. The biggest of the goods can be transported on freight trains, which were never available in the series before.

Technical aspects

Farming Simulator 17 for PC, PS4 and etc. uses the same engine as the previous parts. The developers introduced some modifications, however, mainly in terms of lighting and models of the machines. The gameplay takes place on maps known from Farming Simulator 15 – complimented by the Sosnovka environment (which was already present in the gold edition of the previous game). A new map is also available, set at the coast of Pacific.
