Farming Simulator 17 Announced

Focus Home Interactive announces Farming Simulator 17, a new installment in their agriculture series coming to Windows and consoles by the end of this year. Information on this should be added soon to the official Farming Simulator website, and in the meantime there's a bit on what to expect in the announcement:

Giants Software and Focus Home Interactive are pleased to announce today the continuation of their partnership for the release of Farming Simulator 17, arriving simultaneously on PC and consoles at the end of 2016. The game will be introduced for the first time during the What's Next of Focus Home Interactive press event organised in Paris, where journalists across the world can discover all upcoming titles released by Focus. There, they can also meet the developers of Farming Simulator 17 and discover some of the brand new features added to Giants Software's upcoming game.

"It's been a pleasure working with Focus throughout all these years. This partnership is the water on the seed that made Farming Simulator grow into the global phenomenon it is today. Each time we release a new version together we reach more people, and we look forward to expanding this reach even further in the coming years."
Thomas Frey - Vice-President of Giants Software

"Farming Simulator is a one of a kind story in the video game industry. Years ago, we imagined a unique destiny for this game and Giants Software, their creators. It is with great satisfaction that we succeed in reaching all of our objectives. There are still a lot of beautiful pages to write for Farming Simulator, and it starts right now with the simultaneous release of the game on PC and consoles at the end of the year."
CÚdric Lagarrigue - President of Focus Home Interactive

I've mentioned these games to my Uncle, who is a farmer. He just stared at me like, "why would anyone ever want to...."

because its absolutely nothing like real farming.. for one, the time is x1000, for another, no physical labor, etc. etc. etc.

they distill out the "fun" bits

thats why

Does it simulate commodity price crashes?

They should ban these games. We don't want terrorists playing them and learning how to farm.

Didn't see that ending coming... I thought it was going to be "seeing us playing them and giving them another reason to attack us".

Most people judge these games by the title without even looking at gameplay or trying the demo.
There's fun to be had there, even if the game doesn't have cutting edge graphics or Ai.

Believe it or not, I've actually had a few good LAN parties around Farming Sim 2015. There's some great potential to comedy there, in addition to a surprising amount of satisfaction at growing your resources, selling them off, and expanding your infrastructure to get a bunch of cool new toys.

I have a friend who worked for BNSF for decades and he had a similar response when I told him about the train sims on steam...

I wonder if playing this, you then count as a farmer at farmers only? Farmer at heart. I'm thinking... yes!

That video cracks me up every time. I'm actually tempted to buy Farming Simulator 15, it is(was?) on sale on Steam, but I surely don't need to add anything but XCOM2 and Witcher 3 to the queue at this point.
