FARMING SIMULATOR JOINS THE WORLD OF ESPORTS WITH ITS OWN LEAGUE

Recommended Posts

BY SHABANA ARIF 

Giants Software have announced a "full-fledged eSports league" for Farming Simulator in Europe with a total prize pool of 250.000€.

The new league will be held in the new Farming Simulator 19 and will feature 10 tournaments across Europe. The events have progressed from bale stacking we saw in last year's Farming Simulator Championship to a competitive 3 vs 3 mode.

The 250.000€ prize pool will be made up of "big prizes" for each of the 10 tournaments, and 100.000€ in prizes at the finals.

"Competitive farming is something people enjoy for years now, but it hasn’t been done in eSports so far," said Christian Ammann, Giants Software CEO and eSports division manager, via Gamasutra.

"We have lots of eSports enthusiasts in our company who can’t wait to show the world that farming can indeed be fun and competitive at the same time. We believe we found the right mix of real farming and fun to play game elements to ensure everyone will find it entertaining."

Farming Simulator 19 launched at the end of last year for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

The title sold one million copies in 10 days (via eSports Observer), and the newly announced league has already secured a number of sponsors, including Logitech, and Intel.
