Try Not To Soil Yourself But The ‘Farming Simulator 17’ Trailer Has Dropped

Like everyone with an interest in video games, when I think about what’s at the forefront of the modern gaming experience, ‘Farming Simulator‘ immediately springs to mind.

Transforming the tedious analogue process of doing actual farmwork into a tedious simulated exercise rendered in excruciating detail, it’s absolutely the best way to spend hundreds of hours operating heavy machinery without getting paid a single cent for it.
In their own words:

“Immerse yourself in a huge open world loaded with a yield of new content. Explore farming possibilities over hundreds of acres of land, including a detailed new North American environment. Drive over 250 authentic farming vehicles and equipment from more than 75 manufacturers, including huge new brands such as Challenger, Fendt, Massey Ferguson and Valtra.”
Amazing stuff.
While we have to wait what feels like thousands of years between ‘Grand Theft Auto‘ games, ‘Farming Simulator‘ games have been released once a year nearly every year since 2008, and the 2017 edition looks like it will feature the highest fidelity tractors yet, and no one is more excited about that fact than whoever made the new launch trailer.
Accompanied by a deceptively cool chillwave soundtrack, the trailer takes the male gaze to its most mechanical extreme, staring at and lingering on various harvesters and pieces of farming equipment that I’m too city-ruined to identify with lustful abandon and almost tangible desire.
If driving tractors at a medium speed over rolling hills at sunset gets your erogenous zones primed, then prime your erogenous zones for this incredible piece of gaming technology:
This dope slice of digital bliss can be yours as of October 25th, you can pre-order it on Steam here.
