No, with its 19th release, the best-selling farm simulator developed by Giants Software is making huge progresses, coming with a new graphics engine and offering effects and visuals more realistic and engaging than ever.

Farming Simulator 19 Story
As a simulator, Farming Simulator 19 is not offering much of a story, but more objects and machines to use for more productivity, freedom for the player’s creativity and strategy, as well as a larger setting for more expansion of the farming activity on several territories from the world.
Featuring new European and American environments, Farming Simulator 19 is allowing the player to pursue multiple new farming activities in productive new areas where they can also expand their farm. New agriculture machines have been added such as John Deere, New Holland, Case IH, Fendt, Valtra, Challenger, Deutz-Fahr, Massey Ferguson, Valtra and many top-class machines representing some of the most popular brands in the farming industry. Furthermore, new crops will be added, including oat and cotton besides the existent corn and other cereals, while stocks of new animals including sheep, cows, chickens and pigs will also be making the farming experience more complete and vast than it has ever been.
Farming Simulator 19 Mechanics
There are several new concepts and mechanics introduced in this edition of Farming Simulator, which will enhance the gameplay at maximum, making it more realistic. For example, for the first time since the series started and unique in comparison to every previous game, Farming Simulator 19 will bring horses that you will be able to ride and use in order to explore new lands and vast realms around your farm. New tools, new animals and hundreds of new available vehicles and machines, a number establishing a record in the history of the series, will make the game quite a novelty even from those who have already tested all the other earlier versions.
Some other innovations brought by Farming Simulator 19 are the improved artificial intelligence of the farm employees, new questing mechanisms which aim to make the play-through more facile for the player, some new customization options of the farmer character and some brand new abilities and tasks, including selling crops, buying lands, harvesting, carrying timber and even controlling the machines and driving the vehicles.
Farming Simulator 19 Modes
Offering a classical single-player mode for all available platforms, Farming Simulator 19 is also coming with a multiplayer mode for the PC version, which allows up to 16 players to collaborate upon building and managing the biggest and most complex and productive farm ever simulated in the virtual world.
Farming Simulator 19 Technical Issues
While Farming Simulator 19 provides a three dimensional technology and a new engine for better graphics, there were still reported recently some bugs that were not fixed yet in the game. From these, we can mention unstable game or frequent crashes especially during saving or loading game, drops of the fps when having trees or multiple machines moving closely, glitchy animation, lower shadow quality and even worse framerates, slideshow-like, which appear in the multiplayer mode. Particle effects from harvesters have also been a real problem, and so have been the way too quickly wearing down machines, which couldn’t be used anymore after only a few hours of activity and made it impossible to completely cultivate larger fields without repairing the vehicles for at least a few times meanwhile. And nonetheless, according to the reviewers’ opinions, the improved graphics, in most of the cases, haven’t been able to make big differences in the visual experiences offered by the game in the end.
