The full game also reveals about Farming Simulator 22 Closer than ever, developer Giants has released some major new details to further guide fans. The new simulation will introduce three new crops to the series for the first time: grapes, olives and sorghum.
These never-before-seen crops will provide additional ways to conduct virtual fieldwork. Grapes are the first vine-based crop in the chain, bringing the new opportunity for vineyard cultivation in farming simulator Game. The Giants states that ‘special equipment’ will be needed to keep the grapes ‘fertilized, loosening and spreading the land’.
This seems to indicate that perhaps a new class of machines will also be introduced. Just like in real life, the grapes are inside FS22 Seasonal, they can only be planted and harvested from late spring through summer. Olives play by similar rules to grapes in terms of planting and harvesting periods and will also require specific machinery. The strangely named sorghum is growing in importance all over the world thanks to its nutritional value and ability to grow in drier climates. Unlike the other two new crops, luckily it doesn’t seem to require any special machinery.
From crops to currency
All three of these new crop types are able to play a role in recently announced gameplay mechanic for Farming Simulator 22: production facilities. These facilities, such as grain mills, will allow players to extract new products from harvested crops.
For example, grapes can be used to make wine, but since this chip must maintain an E rating, it will be used to make in-game grape juice instead. Olives can be turned into olive oil, and sorghum can be turned into something more familiar: flour. These new products can then be distributed to points of sale, thus creating an additional revenue stream.
While we still haven’t seen any gameplay Farming Simulator 22 So far, the studio has released a new cinematic trailer that once again shows the new season mechanic in action, as well as new crops:
Farming Simulator 22 The full reveal will finally be made during FarmCon, which will take place in just a few weeks from July 21-22. The full game will hit stores on November 22.
