You’d expect e-sports leagues for popular multiplayer games like Fortnite and Overwatch, not for something like Farming Simulator. That doesn’t negate the fact that this game has a sizeable following of its own as well. To that end, developer Giants Software announced today that it’s launching a new Farming Simulator League, which is indeed a competitive tournament with lucrative prizes up for grabs.
Ten tournaments will be conducted across Europe as part of this league including at big events such as the Paris Games Week and Gamescom. The league’s grand final will take place at FarmCon 2020. There’s a substantial prize pool for this league. It will move from bale stacking to a competitive 3 vs 3 mode where teams will challenge each other to determine who can be the best at virtual competitive farming.
Giants Software has set aside €250,000 or almost $280,000 as prize money. Some major brands are going to sponsor the league including Intel and Logitech. Players will compete against each other in the latest iteration of this game series, Farming Simulator 19.
The popularity of this franchise can be judged by the fact that this iteration sold more than a million copies in the first 10 days after its launch back in 2018. The developer is going to provide more information about the new Farming Simulator League in the near future.
