Farming Simulator 19 reveal trailer introduces dog, handsome farmer, barn

Cropping up on Xbox, PS4, and PC later this year.

Publisher Focus Home Interactive has unveiled the first trailer for this year's entry in the enormously popular Farming Simulator series.

Farming Simulator 19 is due out at the end of the year on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, and promises to offer more of the series' oddly relaxing agricultural exploits. You can expect crop planting and harvesting, livestock rearing, forestry, and product selling - alongside a dog, a barn, and a handsome farmer, if the reveal trailer is any indication of the final game.

According to Focus, Farming Simulator 19 will feature a completely overhauled graphics engine, said to offer "the most striking and immersive visuals and effects to date". Whether the final game's farmers will be of the same high-calibre handsomeness as the trailer's once the new graphics engine has had its way with them, remains to be seen.

Farming Simulator 19, which can be played solo or co-operatively with friends, will introduce new big brands to the garage, making for the "the franchise's most extensive vehicle roster ever", as well as new new farming activities, new crops, and new animals - including horses. It will also feature three distinct open-world maps at launch: an improved version of last year's South America map, and two other unannounced areas.

Focus says that it will be revealing more of Farming Simulator 19's additions and improvements "in great detail" over the coming months.
