Players work at tasks that simulate real life farming tasks, from breeding the best livestock, to growing crops for cash, general good farm management is a must to help the player sell assets that are created on the farm. Previous versions of the game have included animals like sheep, pigs, cows and chickens: this version has added horses, due, it is said, to popular demand. Crops include brand new cotton and oats alongside wheat and corn (or grains), soybeans, root crops like potatoes, as well as poplar, sugar cane, silage, hay and grass. All the crops and animals have different needs, and must be managed in slightly different ways to the others, giving you plenty of interest in raising a variety of crops and animals. A big plus for this version of the game is the introduction of, alongside the horses, cotton and oats, as mentioned above, high-end branded machinery, including the well-known John Deere, alongside the likes of Komatsu and Rau, not to mention Wilson trailers.
Play for Zen in Three Exciting WorldsThe beauty of the game is that much of the work is endlessly repetitive: lots of ploughing, sowing, watering, and reaping. This means that the game is basically a grind game, but this is its attraction to the many players who adore it: the repetitive actions have a charm all their own, being almost therapeutic. There is, however, enough variety with seasonal changes and with taking on new farming tasks, like raising animals or changing the crops being grown to keep the game fresh and interesting. You are even impelled, occasionally, to change your vehicle from time to time as well as performed basic maintenance tasks like refuelling: all of which ensures that your interest remains high and the game does not become boring. There are three distinct open worlds to play in, each having significant differences to the others. Try them all before picking your favourite to grow your ideal farm, complete with crops and animals.
