Publisher and developer GIANTS Software has revealed more of the impressive new machinery additions. Coming on 15th November, the Platinum Expansion for Farming Simulator 22 introduces more than 40 new vehicles and tools. Farming Simulator 22 – Platinum Edition releases simultaneously for newcomers to the game, including the base game and the upcoming expansion.
Authentic & Detailed Machines
The roaring video trailer shows off authentic machines in action from IMPEX, John Deere, Koller, Komatsu, Kotschenreuther, Manitou, Pfanzelt, Schwarzmüller and Volvo Group. Most of them focus on forestry, as the new map Silverrun Forest is located in a scenic Pacific Northwest location with its woody landscapes – adding new tree species in Farming Simulator 22, too.
All vehicles and tools are recreated with attention to detail and include features from their real-life counterparts. Such as the IMPEX Hannibal T50 and the Komatsu 951, whose slope compensations keep their driver cabins plain even in toughest terrain. Depending on the header, the huge Volvo EC380DL can either become a harvester to handle and cut logs into selectable lengths – or it can be equipped with the Risutec SKB-240 to accurately plant tiny saplings and reforest nature.
Farming Fun for Fields & Forests!
Transportation is part of the business: The Pfanzelt Felix and its two winches are another new option when in the forest, while players can count on the Volvo FH16 and the Schwarzmüller Timber Trailer Semi on the roads. And the nicknamed “Gravel Charlie” BM-Volvo DR-631, the first articulated dump-truck ever created, being produced more than half a century ago, adds a nostalgic and useful touch to the game.
The new production chains add even more gameplay variety, as virtual farmers not only produce bread or olive oil, but also floor tiles, barrels or dog houses. Silverrun Forest even offers construction projects that develop based on the delivery of logs – such as building a rideable rollercoaster as a long-term goal.
Farming Simulator 22 – Platinum Edition will be the most comprehensive farming simulation ever with more than 500 vehicles and tools from more than 150 manufacturers. Users owning the million-selling Farming Simulator 22 base game can upgrade their gaming experience with the Platinum Expansion.
Farming Simulator 22 is available for PlayStation®5 (PS5™), Xbox Series X, PlayStation®4, Xbox One and PC. A Year 1 Season Pass is available, including the Platinum Expansion as well and extending the game with even more content. GIANTS Software will also continue to release free content updates and user-generated content on the official ModHub. Visit the official Farming Simulator website.
