Giants Software's latest announcement has some great news for Farming Simulator 19's PlayStation 4 players, who are getting the Season Mod tomorrow, 17 December 2019. Moreover, the dev said more mods like this will be coming to the PS4 version of the popular sim game .
Farming Simulator 19's Seasons Mod was built in cooperation with the Realismus Modding group, the team behind the PC/Mac mod that's among the most popular mods on the two respective platforms.
The changes are not merely cosmetic either, and they bring way more than just pretty colours. In fact, they significantly overhaul the whole Farming Simulator 19 experience, as you can see from the dev's list of changes:
- Visuals and audio that reflect the season
- Enhanced weather system
- Improved growth system
- Rebalanced economy
- New animal system
- Detailed weather forecast
- Rotation planner for crops
What this means is that Farming Simulator 19 players will have to adapt to seasonal changes and do their best to predict the upcoming weather, although that may be as tricky as in real life. "With three distinct phases for each season, and several new kinds of weather events, every year will bring unique challenges and rewards, due to the way it impacts crop growth", they said.
Perhaps the best news of all, though, is the fact that Farming Simulator 19 will be getting similar mods in the future. "Knowing that mods have traditionally been a mainly PC thing, we're super excited to be working with Realismus Modding and others to bring mods like this to PS4", they wrote.
