The very little information on the game’s content offering concerns the addition of new maps to the pack. For now we have been presented with two unpublished areas, one set in America and the other in Europe, along with the well-known Estancia Lapachointroduced in the Platinum Edition of Farming Simulator 17. Just taking this last area as a model, the development studio has started to revisit all the huge graphical advances that have benefited from the Giant engine.

Using a proprietary engine allowed the team to have greater flexibility in the changes and improvement process: Farming Simulator 19, from this point of view, is the perfect example of the versatility of the aforementioned engine, capable of making truly exponential qualitative leaps from the visual point of view. In short, the entire presentation focused on the technical updates made in the last chapter. As a demonstration of the radical change, we were shown some comparative screenshots of the renovated Estancia Lapacho: the new management of the light sources, now warmer, more voluminous and realistic, immediately catches the eye, alongside which there is a greater detail in the textures, in the refraction of light rays and the formation of shadows.

The result, compared to the past, is impressive, and the images shown on the screen show a monstrous technical leap. The vehicles, in particular, have taken on incredible realism: for the occasion, Giants Software has also announced the addition of a new harvester to the line. Ideal AGCOnot yet commercialized, which will debut in Farming Simulator 19. The number of vehicles, for its part, has increased dramatically, as have the customization tools and alliances with the main brands in the sector.

From the conversation with the team, it was revealed that there will be new types of animals (such as horses) as well as additional types of crops and, clearly, many extra missions, in which we can experience an increase in the artificial intelligence of the helpers.
Unfortunately, we don’t know how the virtual supporting actors will change their routines. We don’t even know what new assignment development system will be grafted onto the in-game economy: so there are still countless uncertainties about it. Farming Simulator 19.
