New Farming Simulator 17 trailer rides the rails with its drivable trains

Developer Giants Software and publisher Focus Home Interactive have released the newest trailer for the upcoming Farming Simulator 17 for the PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. This gameplay glimpse takes a look at one of the game's new features: drivable trains.

The game will have two train lines that can be driven across its large map. Here are the details:

The train is the fastest way to deliver your produce in large quantities. You will find several areas on the map that will allow you to stock, transfer or sell your grain and wood harvests directly from trains. Silos hold your grain, while conveniently placed heavy-duty cranes will allow you to transfer wood between trains or unload it at the sawmill to be processed and sold.Both lines meet at a central point in the playable area, where you will have the opportunity to transfer goods from one train to the other. For example, you might need to transport wood across half of the map, transfer it to the second train line, then transport it the other half to Stanton Sawmill where you can process it into wood chips and sell it. There is no risk of losing cargo, as the wagons are equipped with convenient fastening belts to ensure stability of your product.

Farming Simulator 17 is due for release on October 25 for $49.99.
