Farming Simulator game series is known to have a huge audience. This week game developer GIANTS Software decided to expand its reach even more by attracting players who are into competitive gaming. After testing the waters in 2018, this week the developer has announced the Farming Simulator Championship – a league-like competition with 250 000 euros prize pool.
As the announcement states, the new league will consist of 10 separate tournaments across Europe, each with its own prize pool and qualifiers. Every single tournament will grant circuit points, while the biggest point earners will get an invite to the finals.
Matches will be played in a fresh 3 vs 3 competitive modes where teams will be able to challenge each other to determine who is the best farmer. While the new mode will stand true to its roots of farming and harvesting, GIANTS Software states that it will also pose a new set of fun challenges. The developer has promised to provide further detail on the new game mode in the near future.
While most of us might be sceptical about this form of esports, we shouldn’t forget that Farming Simulator is a widely popular game. The latest entry in the series Farming Simulator 19 had sold over a million copies in its first few days. The game is also very popular on Eneba and was one of the best selling games last month.
