As more and more farmers look for additional ways to generate income, Farming Simulator 22 will offer you various opportunities to grow your farming operations. Don’t stop at selling your fresh harvest: If you want more of the capitalism-flavored cake (made with regional ingredients only), and earn even more from your produce, start a production chain!

Become a local farming mogul!

In Farming Simulator 22, there is a total number of 13 different production plants you can not only supply with your goods, but buy, own and place on your land, too. Take a look at the graphic to learn more about the dependencies.

So, whatever is produced in the end, it’s made locally: Whether it’s cheese at the dairy, flour at the grain mill, or even clothes at the tailor shop after wool has been processed at the spinnery.

One of our favorites is the bakery, offering local residents fine bread and delicious strawberry cake. It’s as lucrative as it is tasty, and requires a whole set of ingredients: flour, sugar, eggs, butter, and strawberries from your greenhouses – we’ll tell you more about those and more, soon. You can bee excited!

We did some groundwork in Farming Simulator 22: Not only does the soil, like other surfaces, appear more natural and vivid thanks to Parallax Occlusion Mapping, there are also new ground working systems and a lot of new ground textures you can look forward to.

New feature: Mulching

Mulching. The revelation of domestic gardening through questionable overuse of bark chips. But, backyards and home improvement are not what we’re talking about here. Although, the science is basically the same: Mulching improves the soil (and therefore the yield).

In Farming Simulator 22, we use a mulcher attached to our tractor, to cut and apply fresh grass to the surface of the soil when cultivating a grape or olive orchard, for example. After harvesting your crops, you can also mulch the stubble left on the field to improve the yield.

And, because it’s still important to many, you also mulch to guarantee the visual appeal of your grape and olive orchards, as mulching makes everything on your vineyard look nice and clean, too. How wonderful!

Also, there are bigger types of mulchers in the forestry section. They even mulch bushes and tree stumps. (Almost) Nothing will get in the way of mulching, if you apply the correct machinery.

New feature: Stone picking

Leaving the wonderful world of mulching, there’s a hard reality lying dormant in the ground: Stones! When cultivating, or plowing, stones can turn up on your field. Depending on what kind of cultivator you are using, the size of the stones varies. Using a subsoiler, you will dig up some larger rocks compared to your shallower groundwork. Your soil lies in chaos now. Oh, no! But, what now?

When collecting stones with your stone picker, you can even make some additional money by selling them to the debris crusher. Get your revenge on those soil invaders (and even get paid for it)! Before you begin to sow your crops now, you should take care of the stones one way, or another. You can also turn stones off, if you like.

Leaving them on the field will damage your machines. Not only that, your problem will get worse – more and bigger stones will turn up. If you don’t like to collect them, there’s another method to get rid of them – at least the smaller ones. Here comes another ground working mechanic into play, that ties into stones. Yes, stones are the gift that keeps on giving…

New feature: Soil rolling

If you picked large rocks out of the ground, you need to collect them. With smaller stones, turning up after cultivating or plowing, you can also use this spectacular looking agricultural tool called a roller, and simply press them into the ground again. Yes, just roll over them – they had it coming, threatening the well-being of your expensive machines.

Rollers are not just a tool to conceal the rocky consequences of cultivating or plowing, though. After sowing your crops, you gain an additional yield bonus when rolling over, flattening and compressing the seedbed. Considering the type of crop and field size, we’re talking about a considerable amount of money.

There’s also incentive to get your roll on, when you’re a grassland enthusiast. As rolling around on your meadows grants you a fertilizing stage. Mind, that rolling over grass sets it back to the first growth stage – so you should roll over the grass when it’s freshly cut and mowed.

Look at the new ground textures!

We revised basically all ground textures for Farming Simulator 22. You’ll notice more visual diversity. And, when playing with some friends invited to your farm (even via Crossplay), you’ll definitely notice, if those slackers haven’t rolled the seedbed, as the texture looks different from the one where it’s not. Don’t let them get away with lowering your yield!

Above, you see just some examples of the new ground textures in the game. Click on the image to enlarge.

Farming simulator 22 mods / FS22 News

Good news, everyone! Farming Simulator 22 will feature cross-platform multiplayer. No more separation between friends on different systems – everyone can play together, regardless of their preferred platform.

So, get your controller-wielding buddies online and show’em how precise you can harvest those new grapes with mouse and keyboard (or the other way around)!

Crossplay FAQ: What you should know

Which platforms are supported?

Crossplay is supported by Farming Simulator 22 on PC, Mac, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Stadia. Everyone can play together!

How many people can play together?

If the server host is hosting from a PC, up to 16 players are possible, including players on consoles. If using a game console to host the server, up to 6 players are possible, in total.

When playing on a dedicated server hosted by Nitrado, other server providers, or even self-hosted dedicated servers, up to 16 players are possible, regardless of the players’ systems.

Can console players rent and host servers?

Yes. Console players can rent and host their own servers via Nitrado, and other server providers, too. Just like PC players.

Can I deactivate crossplay?

If you’re worried, other players might be superior at farming because of mouse and keyboard controls: don’t worry, they won’t be. But, you can still use filters to avoid crossplay servers, and prevent players on other platforms from joining your server.

On PlayStation and Xbox consoles, you can disable it in the system user preferences. Make sure to allow crossplay for the console user to make this feature available in-game.

Is cross-saving possible?

Only the host is saving the progress. Farm progression is not saved for everyone else.

How will DLCs & mods affect crossplay?

Every player has to have the same content (DLCs and/or mods) installed as the server host. Otherwise, players with missing content can’t join the server. Console users can only join servers with mods that are available through the official ModHub on consoles. Stadia users can only join servers with no mods activated.

How will slots (consoles) affect cross-platform multiplayer?

The hosting platform is setting the initial limit of available slots (determining the maximum number of machines, tools, etc. on the server). If a player with fewer slots available on his platform is joining the game, he will set the new slot limit for everyone based on his platform.

If a server has already more slots occupied than supported by your platform, joining the server won’t be possible. Since old-gen and current-gen consoles differ in terms of available slots, too, console players have to keep in mind the slot count when playing with friends using a console from a different hardware generation.

How does voice chat / text chat work?

Farming Simulator 22 supports cross-platform voice and text chat. Text chat input is only possible on PC, console players can read the text chat.

Joint farming: Uniting PC and consoles

Thanks to crossplay, cooperative farming will be more fun than ever. Work the fields together, occupy different farms, and help each other out where you can. With production chains becoming part of Farming Simulator 22, there’s even more to do, now.

In other news: the latest fashion

That’s not all: So everyone can farm together in (their own) style, the new character creator also allows for various new customization options. Just in time for crossplay. Stay tuned, we’ll show it to you very soon. Get ready to put on shiny rubber boots, some cool glasses, and glorious mustaches.
