Giants Software has announced that the latest entry in its enormously popular Farming Simulator series will launch on PC, Xbox One, and PS4 on November 20th.
Farming Simulator 19, as this year's instalment is known, is described as "the deepest, most complete farming simulator ever" by Giants Software, and promises the likes of improved visuals, new environments and expanded activities to further enhance the series' strangely soothing agricultural rhythms.

As you'd expect, virtual farmers can plant, harvest, and sell crops (now including cotton and oat), and there are "hundreds of faithfully reproduced farming vehicles and tools" to augment the game's core activities. This year's Farming Simulator also expands its livestock options by introducing horses to the usual line-up of pigs, cows, sheep, and chickens.
Horses can be ridden to "explore the vast areas offered in huge open worlds", and the game now features three distinct maps based on American and European environments. What's more, if you were worried that farming might be an excessively solitary pursuit, Farming Simulator 19 lets up to 16 agricultural aficionados share the toil by playing together online.
Giants Software is also promising support for community-created mods "to enrich your farming experience" on consoles and PC. But will everybody's favourite Handsome Farmer, as seen in the trailer above, be playable in the final game?
