Today, GIANTS Software has announced that it is ready to create the Farming Simulator League, with 10 tournaments across Europe. This is in celebration of the success of last year’s Farming Simulator Championship, and the total prize pool for season two will total a whopping €250,000. The league will also be using the newly released Farming Simulator 19, which is available now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Mac.
GIANTS Software has teamed up with some of the industry’s finest for the upcoming league, partnering with Logitech G, Intel, noblechairs as well as long term partner Nitrado to provide the best experience possible to both players and fans of the Farming Simulator League.
“We have a unique opportunity“, explains Christian Ammann, CEO of GIANTS Software and manager of the esports division. “Competitive farming is something people have enjoyed for years now, but it hasn’t been done in esports so far. We have lots of esports enthusiasts in our company who can’t wait to show the world that farming can indeed be fun and competitive at the same time. We believe we found the right mix of real farming and fun gameplay elements to ensure everyone will find it entertaining.”
The game itself is changing as well. Not only will the new league be held for the first time on Farming Simulator 19, but it will also move from bale stacking to a competitive 3 vs 3 mode where teams challenge each other to determine who is the best on the field. The game will, of course, stand true to its roots in farming and combine real field work like harvesting with fun and challenging game elements.
This is just the beginning, so stay tuned for more information about the new Farming Simulator League in the months ahead.
