Farming Simulator 17 Platinum Edition promises to be the ultimate farming sim

Hold onto your hats, because there’s an updated version of Farming Simulator 17 coming to town. Platinum Edition is going to blow you away when it launches in November.

I can’t even begin to describe the levels of awesomeness that awaits. First of all, you’ll be able to travel to the new South American playground of Estancia Lapacho and tend to your Coca crop. No, wait, that’s wrong. You can tend to your vegetables. Just vegetables.

Seriously guys? I mean, I could farm dope on my Graphics Calculator in the year 2000. Remember how sick that was? Farming dope and then doing rad deals to make millions…if only.

But I digress. Farming Simulator 17 Platinum Edition promises to be the dopest (but not in the drugs sense) farming sim ever. Aside from heaps of veggies, Estancia Lapacho includes a railway network, sugar cane fields and the biggest addition of all; LOCAL COWS! Boom! Take that all you out of towners. Or should I say, out of cow-ners?

Probably not.

To help you harvest the ‘sugar cane’ (wink), you’ll be able to use the CASE IH A8800 MR sugar cane harvester. Hopefully, you can pimp it out with a sick stereo system and blast some fat beats while you sling that sugar. Famous machinery brands have also been added in Platinum Edition from South America, Poland and Australia. REPRESENT!

There will be over 275 authentic farming vehicles available and equipment from over 80 manufacturers. If you already own Farming Simulator 17 on PC the expansion will be available in stores on November 14. For new players, it will be on PC, PS4 and Xbox One on November 14.
