Farming simulators are sleeper hit games because they're low profile, but somehow widely popular. Today, developer Giants Software and publisher Focus Home Interactive released Farming Simulator 19. The game is available on Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4 right now, starting at $49.99.

According to the developer, the successful franchise takes a giant leap forward in 2018 because it features a complete overhaul of the graphics engine. The trailer showcases the new visuals and enhanced effects, along with what to expect from the experience this time around.

Farming Simulator 19 includes three unique open worlds at launch, in which you can develop and expand your farm alone or with friends. Two entirely new environments will be released soon, as well as an improved version of yesteryear's South American map, which has been completely overhauled using the new visual engine. Players should expect more foliage and other additions so that it looks more alive.

The developer is promising significant improvements to nearly every aspect of Farming Simulator 19, not just the enhanced graphics. One of the most important factors enthusiasts look for is the variety of vehicles available in such a game. New content is expected to be richer than ever with the addition of more big brand vehicles. Aside from the larger roster, Farming Simulator 19 will also introduce new farming activities, animals such as horses, and new crops.
