The latest entry in the Farming Simulator series will have a lot for your money – new vehicles, branded machinery, new animals to care for, new crop types, and, as announced at this year’s E3 – mods on consoles and female player characters!

A much requested feature in the Farming Simulator community, being able to play as a female farmer reflects the diverse and ever-expanding industry of agriculture. You’ll be able to pick your avatar’s gender on the character creation screen, along with being able to customise their clothes – you can also do this with the farm hands you hire.

More features will be revealed in the next few weeks, as well as being at Gamescom 2016 in Köln on August 17 – 19 2016. Farming Simulator 17 will release on October 25, 2016, for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC
