We’ve previously covered the initial announcement of Farming Simulator 15 and the announcement of its release dates and, thus, with a month before release, we’ve decided to give you the best idea of what to expect with a gameplay preview. Drawing from the multiple different sources of gameplay footage available, one of which you can watch below, we have compiled a list of things we believe is significantly different with Farming Simulator 15 over its predecessors.
In 15, Giants Software won’t only be bringing along a new avenue of gameplay in logging vehicles and equipment, which was what the E3 teaser was all about, but also general improvements on what made the original games cult hits: The farming. Be it the planting of the crops, harvesting of said crops or animal husbandry, (specifically with sheep, cows and chickens) you can be sure that tweaks to improving them will be made.
The most noticeable things you will see is improved visuals as a whole. The day-night cycle looks beautiful (at least in the trailer which is supposed to be showing gameplay footage). With the advertised new graphics and physics engine, you would expect at least that much. The visuals (at least through the trailers) definitely look much better with vehicles having reflective services and having more realistic suspension reactions to different terrains as well as what seems like actual physics within the game with the cab sort of jumping forward a tad before settling down to momentum.
You also might have noticed an improved and crisper user interface that actually looks like it belongs in this century as opposed to the weird PDA thing they had going in older iterations of the game. Everything looks cleaner and sharper, just genuinely nicer than Farming Simulator 2013 and the mobile Farming Simulator 14.
Farming Simulator 15 is set to be released on the 30th of October for PCs and in early 2015 for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3 and PS4. We’ll keep you updated on all things Farming SImulator 15, so make sure to check back often!
