Farming Simulator 22, the latest installment in the popular farming simulation series, has introduced exciting new multiplayer modes that add a competitive edge to the gameplay experience. Publisher and developer GIANTS Software recently released patch 1.10, which includes two free multiplayer modes: Bale Stacking Mode and Arena Mode. These modes are available on both PC and consoles, offering players a chance to test their farming skills against others. Accompanying the release of these multiplayer modes is a captivating launch trailer, further building excitement among fans.
Stacking Bales for the Highscore
What was once a beloved highlight at international gaming events has now made its way to players’ homes. The Bale Stacking Mode allows up to six players to compete against each other by stacking square bales of straw onto a trailer. The pressure is on, as a timer adds the same intensity as a high-performance bale press. Players can access both the Bale Stacking Mode and Arena Mode through the esports entry in the main menu of Farming Simulator 22. This addition brings the thrill of competitive farming directly to players’ fingertips.
Team-Based Arena Mode Requires Strategy
One of the most popular modes from the Farming Simulator League (FSL), the Arena Mode, is now available to all players without the need to register for the international esports league. In this mode, two teams, each consisting of up to three players, compete to achieve the highest score. The objective is to harvest wheat, press bales, and deliver them to the barn. Strategic gameplay elements are further enhanced through a pick & ban phase, randomized power-ups, and multiple approaches to victory. To make it accessible to everyone, a training mode is also included, allowing players to familiarize themselves with the mechanics of the Arena Mode at their own pace.
FSL: Season 5 Starting Soon
With the release of the new competitive multiplayer modes, the Farming Simulator League (FSL) will transition to Farming Simulator 22 for its upcoming Season Five. The action will kick off at FarmCon 23, a live event taking place in Lauingen, Germany, on July 1st and 2nd. This year, the FSL is sponsored by HELM AG, a new main sponsor, resulting in an impressive prize pool of 200,000 Euros.
