Farming Simulator 17 will let you hire both men and women to work on your farm

Farming Simulator 17, due out in October Xbox One and PC, will allow you to hire both male and female farmhands after vocal requests from within the game's community. The game simulates life on a farm, including working with farm machinery and vehicles.

From publisher Focus Home Interactive:

As requested by the passionate Farming Simulator community, the ability to play a female farmer reflects the diverse and ever-expanding industry of agriculture, making Farming Simulator 17 more realistic and rewarding than ever before. As illustrated in the images released today, players will now be able to select their avatar's gender at the beginning of the game, along with customizing their clothes. This exciting new option will also appear among the workers you can hire: both men and women will give you a hand with the many tasks that a farmer sees throughout the day! 

More features will be revealed for Farming Simulator 17 over the course of the year as the launch gets closer. The game will be released on October 25, 2016.
