Mods have been around for years in PC gaming but it was not until recently that we started to see console developers embrace the community spirit and allow mods developed by players to be used within their games. Not missing out on this unique opportunity GIANTS Software, developers of Farming Simulator, have taken their already flourishing PC mod community and are finally releasing them on to the Xbox One.
Until now, mods have been exclusive to the PC versions of Farming Simulator. They’ve accounted for much of the series’ success, allowing players to add a wealth of new content – including new vehicles, environments, animals, game mechanics, and more, but this is no more. With the up and coming release of Farming Simulator 17, a mods option will be available to allow players to customise their games. GIANTS Software is currently working on having free mods available at launch on PC and Consoles, with players able to download them on October 25.
When asked about the introduction of Mods to the console version of the game Thomas Frey from GIANTS Software said;
The PC community has always shown a great sense of creativity, and demonstrated huge commitment by adding quality content to the Farming Simulator experience. This year, with the support of Sony and Microsoft, we will be able to provide a selection of the best mods created by the PC community, and port them to Consoles. These mods will be checked internally before being released in order to meet all of the necessary Console requirements. If PC players benefit from a larger quantity of mods, Console players will be able to continuously enjoy new mods released regularly for free. These mods will guarantee an optimal and renewed gaming experience for all Farming Simulator 17 players.”
Farming Simulator will released on October 25th for Xbox One and PC. For further information about the up and coming Farming Simulator 17 release and the various Standard and Collectors editions on offer, check out the Official Website.
