Created by Giants Software, Farming Simulator is the most widely played realistic farming simulator game having sold millions of copies worldwide, and is similar in concept to the "Sim" or "Tycoon" titles, except that the game interface starts in a "first-person" perspective.
There are currently five versions of Farming Simulator released, with Farming Simulator 14 being the latest. There are five expansion packs packs available for the game, though not all vehicles and farming implements are available on all platforms. Mobile versions of the game are available on Google Play store (Android), the Apple App Store (iOS) for iPhone and iPad, the Amazon Appstore (Kindle Fire), and Windows Phone. The console version of Farming Simulator 2013 was released on Playstation Vita in May 2013, on Playstation 3 & Xbox 360 in September 2013, and on Nintendo 3DS. The Farming Simulator 2013 for Windows and Mac was released in late 2012.
Farming Simulator 15 has also been announced, and is due to be released in October 2014.
