Giants Software's Farming Simulator series is making the jump to new consoles this year, with versions of Farming Simulator 15 bound for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, as well as PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The new-generation versions of the game will come with online multiplayer and a brand new graphics and physics engine.

Farming Simulator 15 will let players farm across North America on a new Nordic environment, using more than 140 farming machines, including new vehicles that are exclusive to consoles, the publisher says. This year's farming sim will include more than 40 famous farm equipment manufacturers, including some obvious favorites like New Holland, Ponsse, Deutz-Fahr, MAN and more. Also included are cows.

The Windows PC version of Farming Simulator 15 was released for Windows PC in October 2014.
