This week sees the release of a highly anticipated open-world game that will bring a well-received series to the current generation of consoles. Farming Simulator 15 hits the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 on May 19 at Australian retailers.
The console version of Farming Simulator 15 is built on a new graphics and physics engine. The game will introduce woodcutting, with new vehicles and tools dedicated to the craft. Like previous games in the series, Farming Simulator 15 tasks players with managing and developing their own farm. This includes harvesting resources and taking care of animals such as cows, chicken, and sheep. Players will also need to sell your products and invest in additional vehicles and power tools.
Also out on May 19 is CD Projekt Red’s role-playing game, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. The game was very well-received in GameSpot’s review, scoring a ten out of ten. Editor Kevin VanOrd praised the game’s juxtaposition of violence with beauty in its open world, as well as its absorbing story and finer detailing.
Developer CD Projekt Red will release a day-one update for the game that improves the framerate and introduce a number of other technical tweaks. The patch will be automatically applied, and is available to all platforms. Thinking of picking up a PC copy? Check out the minimum system requirements first.
