Farming Simulator, the premiere farming simulation experience by GIANTS Software, has entranced millions of players with its popular setting, addictive gameplay, and hundreds of vehicles from the world's biggest agriculture brands. Over the years, the series has attracted a huge community of passionate players, active in multiplayer and bringing additional content to the game with many incredible mods.

Until now, mods have been exclusive to the PC versions of Farming Simulator. They've accounted for much of the series' success, allowing players to add a wealth of new content - including new vehicles, environments, animals, game mechanics, and more. Therefore, it's with great excitement that, in a series first, mods will be available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in Farming Simulator 17. GIANTS Software is working on having free mods available at launch on PC and Consoles, with players able to download them on October 25.

"The PC community has always shown a great sense of creativity, and demonstrated huge commitment by adding quality content to the Farming Simulator experience," explains Thomas Frey from GIANTS Software. “This year, with the support of Sony and Microsoft, we will be able to provide a selection of the best mods created by the PC community, and port them to Consoles. These mods will be checked internally before being released in order to meet all of the necessary Console requirements. If PC players benefit from a larger quantity of mods, Console players will be able to continuously enjoy new mods released regularly for free. These mods will guarantee an optimal and renewed gaming experience for all Farming Simulator 17 players."

Get on board on the 25th of October 2016: Farming Simulator 17 is coming on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. Check here the different offers available for Farming Simulator 17.
