All Articles: Farming Simulator 15
Do you love the great outdoors, but also prefer to experience it through a video game console? Then today’s Xbox Games Store update is absolutely for you.
Players who love to hunt will be able to hunt the monsters that plague the Northern Kingdoms in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. The massive open-world RPG, which is now available to download on the Xbox One, marks the end of Geralt of Rivia’s adventures. But it looks like CD Projekt’s most famous character (who’s origins are actually found in a Polish novel) will ride off into the sunset in a blaze of glory.
However, if your outdoorsiness trends towards farming, you might want to look into Farming Simulator 15, which is now available to download for the Xbox One and Xbox 360. Farming Simulator 15 promises a simulation of every part of a farm including “harvesting, animal husbandry (cows, chicken, and sheep), sales of fresh products,” and more.
Stepping away from the outdoors theme is Life Is Strange: Chaos Theory, the third episode in Dontnod’s episodic adventure series. Set within the walls of the mysterious Blackwell Academy, the Xbox One/Xbox 360 game still offers plenty of opportunity to explore the strange time travel abilities of main character Max.
Finally this week, Adult Swim Games has added the competitive platformer Mega Coin Squad to the Xbox Games Store. Mega Coin Squad is available for the Xbox One and it promises “fast, frantic, and tactical” action while asking players to collect coins like they’ve never collected coins before.
More information on all of these games can be found after the break. (more…)

Nah, doesn’t have the right ring to it… Lyrical paraphrasing aside, CD Projekt finally added The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt to the PlayStation Store this week and the final adventure of Geralt of Rivia can now be explored in full. And explored, and explored some more, as The Witcher 3 is supposed to be an absolutely massive open-world RPG.
If hunting isn’t your thing, how about farming? Farming Simulator 15 is now available on the PlayStation Store for the PS3 and PS4 courtesy of publisher Focus Home Interactive. Farming Simulator 15 is said to feature a “brand new graphics and physics engine” for the most realistic farming ever and online multiplayer.
Also available this week is Life Is Strange: Chaos Theory (PS3, PS4), the third episode in Dontnod’s episodic adventure series. Max and Chloe have found even more “dark secrets” within the walls of Blackwell Academy and the pending apocalypse is closer than ever. Good thing Max can rewind time.
Finally this week, HyperDimension Neptunia U: Action Unleashed transforms the HyperDimension Neptunia franchise into a hack and slash brawler for the first time. The Vita game features “frenzies of enemies” and a “whirlwind” of special attacks.
A quartet of new games will be available on store shelves this week including one of the year’s biggest new releases.
CD Projekt’s The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is a massive, sprawling RPG that ends Geralt of Rivia’s story in the biggest way possible. If you haven’t seen of the trailers or gameplay walkthroughs (Conan O’Brien’s “Clueless Gamer” segment is particularly enlightening), you should fix that right now before The Witcher 3 launches on the PC, PS4, and Xbox One on Tuesday.
Also available on Tuesday are a pair of games that are nothing like The Witcher 3 and nothing like each other. First up is Farming Simulator 15, which is now available for the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One after a PC launch last year. Farming Simulator 15 does just what it says on the box and gives players a simulation of what it’s like to be a farmer. This Tuesday’s other new release release, HyperDimension Neptunia U: Action Unleashed for the Vita, doesn’t simulate anything approaching reality. Instead, it’s a beat ’em up that takes place within an anime-influenced recreation of the video game industry.
Finally, on Friday, Nintendo will bring the popular match-3/RPG hybridization Puzzle & Dragons to the 3DS for the first time. Puzzle & Dragons Z + Puzzle & Dragons: Super Mario Bros. Edition is actually two separate takes on the concept, one of which stars Mario, Luigi, Bowser, and the rest of the Mushroom Kingdom.
That’s it for this week’s retail release report, but check back all week for details on all the new additions to the digital storefronts.
Focus Home Interactive has announced Farming Simulator 15 will be available for current-generation (PS4 and Xbox One) and previous-generation (PS3 and Xbox 360) consoles on May 19. As part of the move, developer Giants Software plans to add online multiplayer to Farming Simulator 15, a first for the franchise on consoles. For those of you that can’t wait for Farming Simulator 15 on your PlayStation or Xbox, here’s what else you can expect to get. And don’t forget to check out the new trailer embedded above.
With a brand new graphics and physics engine, Farming Simulator 15 offers an immense open world filled with details and visual effects! In solo, but also for the first time online on consoles with the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One, manage and develop your own farm: harvesting, animal husbandry (cows, chicken and sheep), sales of fresh products, investment in new and more powerful vehicles or tools… Discover also the new activity in Farming Simulator 15: woodcutting, and its selection of entirely dedicated vehicles and tools!
