Zurich, Switzerland – The top franchise for farming enthusiasts returns to mobile today with the release of Farming Simulator 16. Players can operate tractors and machines, raise, harvest, and sell crops, and master their land – all from the comfort of their favorite mobile device. Farming Simulator 16 is unmatched in features, giving mobile gamers new crops to plant, new machines to drive, access to forestry, and more.

Farming Simulator 16 expands on the previous mobile chapter with the addition of crops like potatoes and sugar beets. Players plant and harvest their crops (wheat, canola, and corn), then sell them on a dynamic market, choosing the right time to expand and the right time to sell. Smart farmers know to diversify, and Farming Simulator 16 offers players plenty of opportunity to do just that. In addition to crops, farmers can feed sheep and cows to sell wool and milk. Players will also be able to take part in forestry for the first time on mobile, harvesting and selling timber as part of their larger farming operations.

The game also features tractors and machinery from top brands like New Holland, Case IH, Ponsse, Lamborghini, Horsch, and Krone. Whether alone or on local multiplayer with friends, Farming Simulator 16 is the best farm and business simulation game for mobile.

“In Farming Simulator 16 we added a lot of cool features for our players to make the game even more engaging,” says Farming Simulator 16 developer Marc Schwegler. “Graphical effects, like tire tracks and dirt, a new lower camera angle make for a more immersive feel. We added an AI that can do even more tasks for the player, like deliver crops directly to the selling points across the map and return to the farm on its own, plus a whole lot of new tractors and machinery from real manufacturers to play with.”

Farming Simulator 16’s features include:

· Dynamic and challenging crops, animal, and forest management

· Realistic tractors and trucks from some of the biggest agriculture machine makers

· Intelligent assistants to help players manage their farms

· Detailed 3D graphics for machinery and landscape

· Solo play and multiplayer mode over WiFi and Bluetooth

Farming Simulator 16 is available for $4.99 from the iTunes App Store and Google Play. For more information, visit Farming Simulator’s website, like Farming Simulator on Facebook, and follow Farming Simulator on Twitter.
