With Farming Simulator 22, developer and publisher GIANTS Software introduces a new character creator with all sorts of new clothing items and accessories. With the new crossplay feature allowing players to cooperate with more like-minded farmers than ever before, the extension of the character customization allows farmers to stand out from the crowd. The comprehensive build mode offers even more space for a creative and individual game experience.
Latest fashion: Boots, beards, and branded outfits
Players choose from male and female character models, their hairstyle, including a beard or mustache, between various clothing items from top to bottom, and even authentic full-body outfits from international agricultural brands. With headgear, gloves, and glasses, there’s also a set of fashionable accessories to put on.
Creating a rough weather-hardened farmer with a big, bushy beard and striking sideburns in a brown leather jacket and firm boots is just as possible as creating a vigorous farmer-girl in protective clothing, rocking both a ponytail and safety glasses when driving the big forestry machines to do some precise wood cutting. If players want to dress up accordingly for each task, changing clothes is always possible by opening the wardrobe at the farmhouse.
Virtual farmers can wear their favorite brands
On top of the generic clothing options, virtual farmers can also choose from a set of branded outfits. When running a farming operation heavy on John Deere machinery, dressing up in the distinctive green company color adds to the authenticity of agricultural farming operations.
Case IH, CLAAS, Fendt, Massey Ferguson, Valtra, and others are also represented with their authentic outfits. Thanks to ELTEN, GIANTS Software’s trusted partner for safety shoes, and Engelbert Strauss, specialized in high-quality workwear, the safety of virtual farmers is guaranteed, too.
More customization for the farm
Customization of the farming experience doesn’t stop with the character: With the new and extensive build mode, players can also individualize their land. Big buildings, production plants, silos, machine halls, and animal pens may give farming operations that impressive size, already visible when multiplayer companions approach the land from afar.
But, details like sheds, fences, lamps and floodlights, as well as trees and plants add to the individual charm of each farm. Revamped and improved landscaping tools to sculpt and change the environment, allow players to even change the environment itself.
Farming Simulator 22 releases November 22nd for PC, Mac, PlayStation®5 (PS5™), Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation®4 and Xbox One.
