Farming Simulator 22 Content Update Adding 16 New Machines to the Game and More

Developer Giants Software releases a free content update for Farming Simulator 22, which includes a variety of new tools and equipment.

The latest iteration of Giants Software’s long-lived Farming Simulator series, which first appeared in 2008, launched on November 22, 2021. The game arguably fared better than many of the 15 previous games in the franchise, releasing on all major platforms and earning review ratings in the mid-70s on average. The game proved to be so popular that just a week after release, Farming Simulator 22 had more players on Steam than Battlefield 2042.

While some gamers might question whether simulating being a farmer can be fun, the Farming Simulator series has sold over 25 million copies combined. It’s worth noting that games like Stardew Valley and Animal Crossing also feature aspects of farming. But while many farming simulators get things wrong, the Farming Simulator series takes mimicking the profession to a whole new level. Players must maintain and upgrade their equipment, harvest and sell crops, and raise livestock in American and European locales.


Less than a month after the launch of Farming Simulator 22, Patch 1.2 has been released, a free content update that offers a plethora of new equipment and machinery along with three new brands, the American manufacturer ABI Attachments, Danish Kongskilde Industries, and the Dutch company Vervaet. All told, there will be 16 new machines, ranging from tractors to water trailers to rotary snow plows, and all of these machines and tools are based on actual equipment used by farmers in the real world.

In addition to the new tools introduced to Farming Simulator 22 with Patch 1.2, Giants Software has added a number of improvements to enhance gamers’ farming experience. These include new buildings like a mobile home and old barn, as well as an overhauled field info UI so that players can more easily understand yield potential and the best way to remove weeds. Prices have been adjusted for repairs and selling used vehicles, and hiring AI workers will now cost less. There have also been a number of bug fixes and adjustments to make playing Farming Simulator more enjoyable while also keeping the task of farming as realistic as possible.

In fact, Farming Simulator can be so detailed and in-depth that the game’s official website even has a Farming Simulator Academy where beginners can learn about tending to their fields, sowing and harvesting a range of crops, operating machinery, caring for livestock, and even forestry. Once players have mastered the basics and consider themselves more experienced at their craft, they can join the Farming Simulator League Tournament, which adds a new 3v3 competitive game mode to Farming Simulator.

Farming Simulator is available on Mobile PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
