The farm life is a rewarding one in FS22

Farming Simulator 22 is a simulation video game wherein you can raise crops and farm animals to earn a living. Developed by Giants Software, this 3D photo-realistic farming simulation game is part of the Farming Simulator game series and is the sequel to Farming Simulator 19.

Similar to Ranch Simulator and Farm Manager 2018, Farming Simulator 22 offers realistic farming mechanics for its gameplay—such as maintaining the entire life cycle of crops to yield a good harvest. It adds various features to the franchise, like the all-new seasonal cycle, new crops, new machines, and new maps.

The farming saga continues with FS22

Farming Simulator is a farming sim video game series first developed by Giants Software and published by Focus Home Interactive back in 2008. In it, you play as a farmer who must earn money to fix up their farmhouse and various machinery in order to sustain their living expenses. You primarily do so by harvesting crops and selling them, but you can also raise livestock and even dabble in forestry

In Farming Simulator 22, the core gameplay and tools available are still mostly the same as with the previous titles. However, there are three new crops here, as well as new machines and 34 real-life brands added to the game. The biggest update is the seasonal cycle, which lets you plant different crops and plan for the coming season in order to maximize your profits. There are even three new maps available.

Just like the previous games, you can do co-op multiplayer on a farm with your friends. The game even supports free community-created mods to elevate your gaming experience. This is on top of the numerous graphical and gameplay overhaul updates implemented. However, if you’re an old fan of the series, FS22 is not too impressive when compared to FS19—most especially when it comes to mod content.

What vehicles are going to be in Farming Simulator 22?

As mentioned, FS22 comes with a variety of machines and vehicles that you can control—and most of them are from real-life farming equipment brands. For vehicles, we have different truck models—like the Lector Crystal HD, Case Magnum AFS Connect Series, and Fendt Katana 650—and brands such as Mack Trucks, Versatile, and McCormick. These now have gear shifting for a more realistic driving simulation. 

Aside from vehicles, you can also buy tractors and harvesters, as well as HGVs (Heavy Goods Vehicles) for transporting your products. There’s even a new tire brand, automatic header tilt and height controls, and new ground working tools for your machines. These expand your gameplay opportunities alongside the ability to set up production chains for a more seamless farming experience.

Has room to grow

All in all, Farming Simulator 22 is a great farming sim to try out if you want something more realistic and accurate. Not only does it add new gameplay mechanics and content to the beloved familiar features, but it also updates the graphics quality and other aspects of Farming Simulator 19. It doesn’t have an expansive mod community compared to its predecessor but it’s still a solid title.
