Excalibur invites you to Go Green!


Banbury, UK 27th September 2011

One of the best selling simulations of last year invites you to don your wellies and take to the fields with the latest release of Farming Simulator 2011 Platinum Edition for PC DVD-ROM!

In career mode, play the role of a young farmer and experience the varied daily life on a farm in stunning detail, with a huge array of agricultural equipment and even your own team of workers!

Choose to be a livestock or crop farmer or even a blend of both! To be successful your animals will need proper care and attention, with a full feeding regime. In return, extra revenue can be gained from selling fresh milk to the dairies and even spreading organic fertiliser over your fields! New to the platinum edition is the opportunity to become a bee keeper with your very own bees and hives!

If crop farming is more to your taste, build up your farm income by growing a wide range of crops including barley, corn, rape and wheat.

However you structure your farm you are sure to need mechanised help. As your income grows take the opportunity to invest in everything from tractors, combine harvesters, ploughs, seed drills to balers and loaders, all lavishly detailed and fully operable. With licensing from machine manufacturers such as DEUTZ-FAHR, KRONE, HORSCH, PÖTTINGER and VOGEL & NOOT, you are able to drive machines that are faithful to the originals in every respect. The much awaited Platinum addition brings all new equipment including farm machinery from AMAZONE, ploughs, seeders, forage wagons, silage tools and much more!

The green fingered planter can go greener with the inclusion of solar and wind energy units and greenhouses for your crops - exclusive to the platinum edition!

For the multitude of virtual farmers out there, Farming Simulator 2011 can be upgraded to the Platinum Edition with an add-on that offers the extra content available in the Platinum Edition for just £14.99.
