This is gaming in 2016.
Farming Simulator 17 takes things to the next level by allowing you to transfer your crops between vehicles and storage using shovels, conveyer belts and “even the mighty HOLMER Terra Felis 2 eco sugar beet loader”.
I honestly do appreciate that this is a rad development in terms of making the series more realistic, and just as worthy of a headline as a shooter adding in, oh, weapon maintenance or something. That said: I’m writing an article about a very jaunty trailer about tipping sugar beets into a pile, and that’s one of those things that gestalts me out of my usual comfort zone.
Farming Simulator 17 launches October 25 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One. Did you know sugar beets were the primary source of sweetener before sugarcane cultivation really kicked off in the new world? Think about the next time some fantasy novel or historical drama makes mention of a spun sugar dessert or whatever.
These are the sorts of things I think about when I discover a new Farming Simulator 17 trailer called “Tip Anything”, apparently.
