Farming Simulator 2022 Announcement - Fan Thoughts

Post by Dairydeere » Thu Apr 22, 2021 5:01 pm

So, we officially know what the next iteration of Farming Simulator is going to be. FS22 plans to release in the fourth quarter of 2021, so likely November. They've posted a YouTube video, which I cannot seem to discern much besides the fact that we know Seasons will be incorporated as a base feature in the game (awesome!). I also read the blog and I see some very nice machines that are looking to be added. Examples being a Fendt Katana and John Deere 9R. I also noticed in their Seasons picture that there is a very nice American-style farm poking through the trees. Maybe the North American side of the game will really show?

I started this thread so everyone could share their thoughts on the new game's teasers, reveals, etc. *thumbsup*

I'm gonna hold off on it, not ready to give up FS19, and see if I can talk the wife into a pair of Xbox Series X's for Christmas lol

I do like the incorporated season, it was so hard to play FS19 without seasons, kept going back to FS17 until seasons dropped. Can't wait to see what else is in store for FS22.

There was a nice North American-style farm in FS19's reveal trailer. What we got was a California beach town with "farm" buildings that you can't even open the door on. That lovely useless red barn.... :rolleyesnew:

I also noticed the 9R doesn't have a 3-point. That gives me hope for actual vehicle customization options. Hopefully, we'll finally see some US versions of stuff. *thumbsup*

Seasons in the base game will be awesome if implemented correctly AND we still have the option to change geos separate from the map. What if I like a map based in Oregon but I want to farm in a climate of western Kentucky? I can currently do that with FS19.

Obviously we haven't seen any actual gameplay but I'm hoping they've toned-down the sparkly graphics. Something in between FS17 and 19 would do. (perhaps this could help with slot limits on current-gen consoles?)

Hopefully, the sound is better. FS19 has the same sounds as FS17 (ex: gravel crunching under the tires) but you can't hear them unless you uncomfortably zoom in to the sound's source. That HAS to change. FS19 would sound incredible if the zoom effect was gone.
EDIT: acually, no. FS19 does sound terrible once you hire a worker or two and you get the auto-tuned stepped-pitch effect. You know what I'm talking about. FS19 sounds terrible.

I'm not holding my breath for gearboxes. They may have added shifting sounds but I highly doubt (and hopefully will be proven wrong) that they've actually included gear shifting.

The AI will still be horrible. Prove me wrong, Giants!

I want to see how they've incorporated soil management, GPS (I am tired of relying on the helper to drive in a straight line), crop rotation, etc...

I remain axiously pessimistic as I always have with the release of a new FS title. It's blatantly obvious that FS19's only marketable component was the addition of John Deere. What's it going to take for the masses to get excited about FS19.5... I mean 22? :lol: I am legitimately anxious to see what the "big secret" of 22 is going to be. :hmm: It's going to take something pretty significant since (in my opinion) they're holding back by keeping this on current-gen consoles. What's it going to take to get anyone playing on PC to get the new game?

@fenixguy I figure that PC and New Gen Consoles will get the full game vs a toned down version for current gen.

The teaser let us know that they realize they need seasons in some from from the get go.
I don't think there's going to be any other big secrets.
Considering they are still holding on to the old consoles, I don't think they have much work ahead. As somebody else said, this may be no more than 19.5.
I look forward to see a list of new features. Hopefully it's short enough to allow them time to complete the existing ones.

The release of 19 was aweful. The game was incomplete, and the release was nothing like what was sold to us from the hype. Also, we seen that going from a plethora of mods to none shows how much the modders actually make the game good. The game won't get good ( for console players ) until at least a year after release and some of those fantastic mods and maps are in place. PC players should be happy somewhat soon after release. Console players, might be better off holding on to 19 for half a year.

This will depend on what will be required to bring current mods into the game and what any new ones will require regarding textures/shaders etc.

Seeing the screenshots they are equally awful in the visual department as 19.

This game is supposed to be a Farming Simulator. One expects a realistic gameplay (as much that's possible before it becomes a chore) and more importantly a realistic world, with realistic nature (foliage, water, sky, weather effects), physics and visuals/reflections etc.

I didn't expect everything to be "fixed" but I was sure some would be there. But nothing?

To me (just like 19) the screenshots, especially the one with the John Deere on looks plastic.
What I would expect Toy Story Simulator to be, not Farming.

Something that feels relaxing and natural, with sounds of birds chirping that would give me a homely feeling; not a cartoon world.

I have downloaded tens of maps, I still haven't managed to play more than 2 hours of 19 in total and if things remain as they are I see absolutely no reason to buy 22.

I am sure there are better ways to spend a few tens of euros. I can't describe how disappointed I feel right now.

The claim they’ve optimized/increased performance so that may be why the last Gen consoles can run it. If they’ve optimized it to run on last Gen and make graphics/game play improvements I think that is described as a win win. If they succeed.

My biggest "complaint" that I have is they have a Fendt Katana and a John Deere 9R that they could release for 19 going off of the screenshots. Why are they holding onto them for 22? Is it to sell the game? If they need equipment to sell the game, are the graphics and gameplay enough of a gamechanger? I get it, but if the game is getting totally revamped and made better, you won't need brands to sell the game. Just my 2 cents.

2 hours!! I have 450hrs so far on fs19.
I think they have to release on last gen just purely based on how terrible the new generation console launch was almost 6 months ago and we are still struggling to find one to buy not that there is any reason to buy one cause there is no good games out yet for next gen. then add in Covid and everything is just shot to heck so at this point I'll be happy with FS19.5 and just hope there is a decent shader mod soon after the launch so it doesn't look quite soo bright and colourfully
As far as I'm concerned Giants has somewhat of a free pass with this game as the covid card is still in hand...

Maybe the licensing agreement was only for FS22? I don't know, I just hope that we get some "older" equipment this time around. Maybe we can include water on the windows in the agreements this time around as well? It looks weird seeing the wipers working full speed and the windows being bone dry... I was my equipment to appear wet, and or to accumulate snow when it's snowing during the winter. Since that's going to be base game this time around. But, looking towards GIANTS the most... I am begging them "down on 1 knee" ready to plea. Please give us 2 THINGS with FS22. I want much more than 2 things. BUT, I NEED THESE 2 THINGS.

1. Separate the REPAIR / REPAINT - I beg of thee GIANTS - Let me please, keep my scratches...
2. Let old Copper ride in the Truck/Tractor with me this time around? You gave us a pup last game, let us have him by our sides in this game.
2 1/2. Can I have a Cat, also? Like really... Every farm I live near around here has cats... and mice, but... I'll just take the cat, please? :lol:

I have 1,227.2 Hours on FS19 - 2,329.8 Hours on FS17 - 101.6 Hours on FS2013 - FS15, FS2011 FS2009 I am not sure of because I own the CD/DVD versions of those. I don't have them on Steam to see the hours of usage. Though, FS15 is when the hours started climbing higher. FS17 is when it sky rocketed.

I think I have an addiction... :lol:
