News on Pure Farming 2018 has been pretty lively lately. From supporting drought relief in order to aid South Africa’s mother city, Cape Town, to announcing mod support and official modding tools, the game seems to have a little something for everyone. The good news is that the game is now available, and Techland has already detailed Pure Farming 2018 DLC (downloadable content).
First and foremost, the game is out now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Microsoft Windows. It is a farming simulator through and through, which allows you to take control of just about every facet of farming in 2018. The game leans heavily toward the use of “green power” and making your farm as efficient as possible. Techland has done its best to make the game as real as possible.
With the release out of the way, Techland announced plans for future downloadable content (DLC). In total there are seven planned Pure Farming 2018 DLC packs, each with new models, machines, and “other surprises”. Techland producer, Lukasz Abramczuk, said that the company has listened intently to the simulator community.
As such they understand the community’s “expectations”, which is why the company will bring a “fleet of full licensed machines” from industry leaders such as Zetor, JCB, and Great Plains into the game. Abramczuk also stated that Techland has “designed unique farms” in the United States, Japan, Italy, Colombia, and even Germany, as well as introduced various crops specific to those regions.
“Thanks to three distinct game modes, we believe [we have] created a game that is very accessible to newcomers and at the same time satisfying for hardcore gamers who know their way around a virtual farm” ~ Lukasz Abramczuk
Furthermore, PC players will get even more modding options. Abramczuk says that three major updates will come to modding tools. He also says that the company will add more support for steering wheels and peripherals. Lastly, “selected” PC mods will make their way to console as free DLC.
While I am a huge lover of racing simulation titles, I have never really tried a farming simulator. With that said, the continued transparency from developers Techland makes this game ever more alluring. Regardless of my stance however, farming sim fans can pick the game up now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Microsoft Windows.
