There really is a simulator game for everything, and we wouldn't have it any other way. Menial jobs make for surprisingly compelling gameplay experiences, and Lawn Mowing Simulator will put that theory to the test as it trundles onto PlayStation 5 and PS4 today. Surprise!
As the name suggests, the game tasks you with mowing virtual grass across an idyllic English countryside setting. Games of this ilk — Farming Simulator and SnowRunner to name a couple — have a uniquely relaxing, satisfying appeal, and this title aims to apply that to lawn mowing. We're here for it.
This being a simulator, it takes itself relatively seriously. Real-world brands are represented, and you'll need to adjust blade height, check the ground for obstructions, and utilise extra tools like grass collectors and stripe rollers — all in the name of achieving a perfectly trimmed lawn. There's also a business management side to it, as you gradually build up a lawn mowing company by investing in larger buildings, better equipment, and more.
Lawn Mowing Simulator has been available on other platforms for a while, but it's now out on Sony's systems for £15.99 / $19.99 / €19.99. Will you be keeping your garden in top condition with Lawn Mowing Simulator on PS5 and PS4? Take the ride-on lawnmower to the comments section below.
