Hey there farmers!
As we near the release of Farming Simulator 17, we’ll be releasing a bucket load of online content to whet your appetite before launch. This includes a bunch of dev blogs that go over some of the great new and expanded features you can expect in this upcoming instalment.
In these dev blogs, we’ll be covering a range of different topics. These include:
New gameplay mechanics
Today, we’re going to be talking about the new map in Farming Simulator 17 – Goldcrest Valley. This North American-themed map is ripe with lush landscapes, beautiful forests, and huge fields ready for farming!
The first thing you’ll notice about this new environment is the flora and the landscape. A great mountainside surrounds the humble valley, with scores of cedar and fir that dot the land and grand lakes for variety. Huge fields can be found around the map, some being over 10 acres large!
Several of the local businesses, farmers, and residents, will be looking for your help! You will be able to interact with some of the small businesses around the town of Maplefield. You can sell your harvested wool to the Golden Yarn Spinnery, for instance, or trade in your grain to the Denton Bakery.
Because of its beautiful countryside and fresh air, Goldcrest Valley is also a popular holiday destination for people who want to take a break from their life in the big city. At the Goldcrest Northern Lodge they can relax at the nearby lake, swim in the heated pool, and start their hiking trips into the forests or up the mountains.
That’s not all you can do! Hidden around Goldcrest Valley are gold nuggets, collectable items that you can find in the game. You can even enjoy a game of hoops at the basketball court in the park.
Goldcrest Valley is one of our richest maps yet, full of great content and small details. Other than Goldcrest Valley, we’ll also be showcasing some new mechanics and content over the next few weeks, so get excited!
Farming Simulator 17 comes out October 25, 2016, for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
