It is FarmCon time and that means it is time for Giants Software to present new add-ons for Farming Simulator 22. Actually, they started in advance by presenting what the Platinum Pack for the game would include: the advent of Volvo machines and a new forestry map to go with them. But let’s take the new stuff in order.
A Vermeer DLC
Closest in time is a new DLC of the smaller type which will introduce the farming equipment brand Vermeer to the game. The highlight in this pack is doubtlessly Vermeer’s self-propelled baler but the pack also includes a trailer mower, a bale processor, a twin rake and a conventional baler.
The Vermeer DLC will be released August 24.
Pumps N’ Hoses DLC
From third-party mod developer Creative Mesh, who earlier have made the Straw Harvest DLC for Farming Simulator 17 and 19, comes a new package dedicated to the handling of manure and slurry on the farm. Even if the DLC is created by Creative Mesh, it will be published and sold by Giants and as such works like any other in-house produced DLC. It will be available from September 27.
The Platinum Pack or Upgrade
On November 15 it is time for the traditional one-year-after-initial-release Platinum edition of the game. As usual it comes both as a new starter pack and as an upgrade pack for those who already have the basegame.
As stated above the Platinum pack has a bit of a forestry angle this year, with a new forestry map called Silverrun Forest and new equipment from Volvo CE. The pack is a larger thing than the common DLC and will provide – among other things – more than 40 new machines and tools of different brands, some new gameplay functions, and the aforementioned Silverrun Forest map.
