First Look: Farming Simulator 2013

Farming Simulator 2013 invites you to face the challenges of a farmer in the 21st century. Animal husbandry, crop harvesting and sales… it’s up to you to manage and develop your own farm in a huge open world. Along your progression, you will gain access to over a hundred faithfully reproduced farming vehicles and machines, which will allow you to improve your performance.

Farming Simulator 2013 keeps all that made it the reference in farming simulation games, while adding many new features and content: dozens of brand new vehicles and machines, new types of crops (such as sugar beets and potatoes), a bigger variety of animals (chicken, sheep), and a vast, brand new environment to play in. Everything is faithfully reproduced in Farming Simulator 2013, from crop harvesting to the vehicles, from animal husbandry to the sales of fresh products. Along with your progression, you will have to manage your income and invest your money to develop your farm: buy better equipment, purchase new fields to expand and harvest, and recruit qualified workers to help you in your task. With a thriving expansion, you will even be able to build new infrastructure in order to diversify your production.

One of the game’s most enticing aspects praised by players, is the huge selection of vehicles and farming machines available in Farming Simulator 2013 which will be extremely helpful to making your farm prosper. Made possible thanks to the licenses of the biggest brands (Case IH, Deutz-Fahr, Lamborghini, Same, Horsh, Grimme, Amazone, and many others), a very large choice of faithfully reproduced vehicles are accessible to players. In total, 130 drivable vehicles and other farming tools have been modeled and animated with accurate detail!

Farming Simulator 2013 also comes with an online mode and online services. While the game offers dozens of fascinating hours of gameplay alone, Farming Simulator 2013 takes a whole new dimension in multiplayer. With up to 10 players in local or online, you will manage a farming that you and your friends will help flourish. Split the tasks in the most efficient way in order to develop much faster than you would alone! You will then be able to quickly acquire top-of-the-line equipment to modernize your farm, hire more workers, and increase the size of your livestock. Mutual help and cooperation will be necessary, and will allow you to accomplish bigger projects even faster!

Over the years, a huge community built itself around Farming Simulator. Conceived from the beginning to be easily modifiable by players, the Farming Simulator series has always been open to «modding» (the creation of content by players) thanks to the development tools supplied with the game. Hundreds of thousands of players already share and trade new scenery, maps, tools and vehicles of all kinds they created themselves for the previous editions of the game. This is definitely one of the key factors to Farming Simulator’s success, and one of the ingredients of its immense popularity. On PC, Farming Simulator 2013 will not be an exception to the series, and the game will be shipped with tools so players may continue developing their own content. This ensures continued interest in playing by providing fresh new experiences with Farming Simulator, giving the game a virtually unlimited lifetime.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
