Farming Simulator 19 is getting its biggest upgrade yet, with the new Platinum Edition expansion pack. This new pack was first revealed a few weeks ago. With Gamescom 2019 currently underway, the team at Focus Home Interactive and Giants Software have shown off the new content even more so. It’s also available for testing on the show floor.
The new Platinum Expansion will contain over 35 new vehicles and tools, all from manufacturer CLAAS. Just like John Deere, CLAAS machinery has never been officially available in a Farming Simulator title until Farming Simulator 19.
A new gameplay trailer has been released which shows the new CLAAS machines and their implements in action:
Fans are most excited about this new pack including machines like the Lexion 8900 combine harvester. A pre-order bonus is also avaliable, which will include two extra machines: the CLAAS Dominator 108 SL Maxi Combine Harvester (with a header and trailer), along with a Zebra-printed CLAAS Torion 1914 Dev Mule Wheel Loader. Pre-orders are live now.
As mentioned in the initial announcement, the new content will come in two versions: the Platinum Edition and Platinum Expansion. If you already own Farming Simulator 19, then the expansion will add-in the new content, whereas the Platinum Edition is for newcomers.
Unfortunately, Giants hasn’t shown off anything else in the Platinum pack other than the new CLAAS vehicles. For comparison’s sake, the Platinum version of Farming Simulator 17 included a new map (which was Estancia Lapacho) and two new crops, along with some new machinery. With the release of Farming Simulator 19‘s Platinum content so near, it’s unclear if more will be revealed other than what’s already been shown off. Nevertheless, 35 new pieces of equipment is nothing to scoff at, and thankfully there’s still the hard-working modding community present to add-in other stuff like new maps and other features.
