Farming equipment is genuinely bad ass, as this Farming Simulator 17 gameplay trailer should demonstrate. It shows a lady farmer tending to one of her plots, using various pieces of licensed equipment to plough, sow, fertilise, and harvest some crops. This is a simple growth cycle – but look at that New Holland self-propelled sprayer. Amazing!

The sequel's set to ripen on retail store shelves from 25th October, and in the wake of copy-cat Professional Farmer 2017, we can't wait to get our hands on the real thing. Is this series starting to grow on you? Are you desperate to get down and dirty this year? Wipe your feet in the comments section below.
