Farming Simulator 19 is getting a major expansion later on this year in the form of the Platinum Expansion. This new package of content will contain a wealth of additions to the game’s already fairly large roster of vehicles and equipment, and this time, it’s all dedicated to products from German manufacturer CLAAS.
The Platinum Expansion will include over 35 vehicles and equipment. This includes a whole new collection of tractors, harvesters (and their various implements), and trailers. This new collection of machinery will allow “players [to] discover a wide range of activities like forage harvesting and baling with ultra-modern design.”
Not many extra details have been given about this expansion other than that. A small gameplay trailer has also been released, which shows off a few glamour shots of the new CLAAS toys.
According to the publishers, Focus Home Interactive, more details about the new expansion are going to be “revealed in the coming weeks”. What is known is that this expansion is going to contain more than just the new CLAAS machinery, as the announcement points to there being “other additions” in the mix too. The description of the above YouTube video also mentions that the expansion will “further enhance the gaming experience on PC/Mac, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One” which further points to there being a lot more that hasn’t been revealed just yet.
Looking back at the Platinum Expansion for Farming Simulator 17, that included new machinery, new crops, and a new environment: Estancia Lapacho (which was ported to the base version of Farming Simulator 19). So, if history does repeat itself, then we should expect to see a similar list of new content for this upcoming expansion.
The Platinum Expansion for Farming Simulator 19 will be released in two variants: a standalone product which includes the base game and the expansion which is called “Platinum Edition”, and just the expansion on its own which will be an add-on for those who already own the base game. The expansion by itself will be $19.99 and launches on October 22, 2019.
