game release date for Switch:
Farming Simulator 20 is an agricultural simulation game. The production represents a series started in 2008, and its development was taken care of by the German company GIANTS Software.
The gameplay in Farming Simulator 20 is based on the solutions from Farming Simulator 19. The game takes place on one of two extensive maps (one of which is located in North America), and during the game we play the role of a farmer, who takes all the responsibilities associated with running a farm. We not only cultivate the land and harvest and sell crops (the list of crops includes cotton and oats), but also engage in animal husbandry (such as cows, pigs and sheep). As there is a lot of work to do, after each finished day we should rest, to which we are bound by the fatigue mechanics.
As we progress, we earn money to buy new land, construct farm buildings and finally buy more and more advanced machinery and tools. There are more than a hundred of the latter here, including the leading John Deere products.
Farming Simulator 20 is based on the technology that powered the previous installments of the series. The game's visuals are therefore decent, and special attention should be paid to carefully designed vehicles and machines.
