BOOM! Forget BioShock Infinite, forget the PS4 even, because 2013's hottest contender has just been announced. Farming Simulator is finally making its way to PS3 and Xbox 360, offering hordes of clamouring console gamers the chance to mix it up in animal husbandry, crops, harvesting, sales and acquiring sweet farming tech.
Erm... hang on. I've just been informed that this isn't a late April fool. So, details below.
Giants Software are preparing the console version for a September release, including "exclusive content" such as a brand new North American environment to compliment the European area already available. New vehicles will also make an appearance, "from famous constructors such as Case IH, Lizard, Ursus, Kramer and Horsch."
"Of course, the game keeps all the ingredients that made the Farming Simulator series a success on PC, by faithfully adapting the subtleties of farming," concludes the accompanying press release.
Farming Simulator is slated to release in the first week of September for PS3 and Xbox 360. Which gives me the perfect excuse to link to one of my favourite videos ever.
