'Farming Simulator 22' Will Ease You Into Things With Farming Simulator Academy - Screens & Trailer

Cultivated to be bigger and better, Farming Simulator 22 will offer more depth thanks to a variety of new additions and therefore the highest extent of player freedom in the history of the series.

Once again, the family-friendly game series takes a leap forward. With new features and improvements, Farming Simulator 22 will allow every aspiring farmer to creatively build their farm no matter the age or real - life profession. Either on their own, or cooperatively in multiplayer for up to 8 players on consoles and 16 on PC, Mac and Stadia.

New crops, new maps, new machines, and new brands are just the beginning of what players can expect. And on top of that, it is getting snowy, too - players should prepare for the exciting addition of seasonal cycles – as well as other features to be announced soon!

Two new maps plus an updated alpine Erlengrat map will put emphasis on different kinds of farming operations through the seasons.

With a set of more than 400 machines and tools from more than 100 authentic agricultural brands including new categories, players can look forward to an improved and realistic-as-ever simulation. But even for new players, it will be easy to dive into agriculture, animal husbandry (including cuter animals) and forestry.

When Farming Simulator 22 launches, newcomers might need guidance. Cultivators, plows, subsoilers - players new to the world of agricultural simulation can struggle to distinguish these tools with their individual benefits to field preparation. The Farming Simulator Academy is designed to make the first steps in Farming Simulator 22 a whole lot easier.

Tutorials accompany player progression

With no experience in farming, whether real or simulated, players might look for a place to receive help, quickly. That's why developer and publisher GIANTS Software introduces the Farming Simulator Academy: Offering text and video tutorials, the Academy is meant to help all players seeking advice for a variety of early challenges.

“We want to offer expedient help provided by our game experts themselves”, says Dennis Reisdorf, Content Marketing Manager at GIANTS Software. “We basically want to take their untrained farmer-hands and accompany them while they advance on their very first farm. If you think a power harrow is a Swedish metal band, you’ve come to the right place.”

Tutorial series will grow over time

From "how to set up a save game" and “how to plant and harvest grapes" up to "how does animal husbandry work", the tutorial series will cover the most frequent problems of aspiring farmers while reflecting the natural progression of a beginner. The further they get, the more in-depth the topics will get.

With the ground cultivated, and the first tutorials planted on, the Farming Simulator Academy will grow over time: GIANTS Software starts with the basics and extends the series with more tutorials in the following weeks and months.

Based on the GIANTS Engine 9, Farming Simulator 22 features many technical improvements such as more realistic AI behavior and richer worlds. Thanks to those worlds, players will be drawn even deeper into the virtual farming lifestyle. For example, motor sounds of their tractors appear even more realistic through acoustic gear selection and graduated reverberation.

Better performance on all platforms: with DirectX 12 support on Windows, texture streaming, multi- threading optimization, occlusion culling and temporal anti-aliasing amidst other optimizations, the newest Farming Simulator will receive a performance boost on all systems laying the foundation for even more complex mod customization to enjoy more content.

Farming Simulator 22 will come to PC, PS5, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, Xbox One, Mac and Stadia on November 22, 2021.
