Get ready for Alpine farming! 

We promised you three more DLCs for Farming Simulator 19 this year. With the Bourgault DLC and the Kverneland & Vicon Equipment Pack already released, it was now time to announce the third one: the Alpine Farming Expansion! Watch the reveal trailer to get a first glimpse of the Alpine farming life in the painting-like scenery of Erlengrat, our new map!

If you want a more extensive introduction to Erlengrat with its vast green fields of grass and curvy roads up to the hills and down to the valley, watch the presentation by our Technical Artist Horia Serban! You'll find it below to get a delicious foretaste (looking at the Chocolatier and the Cheese Factory) of the Alpine atmosphere that surrounds all of the sights of the idyllic town inspired by mountainous regions in Switzerland, Austria and Southern-Germany. 

Learn more about the Alpine Farming Expansion in our announcement. You can preorder the expansion over at our shop!
