Please Note! The patch is currently being rolled out across platforms. It can take a couple of hours until the update becomes available on your system. Crossplay services may be affected in the meantime.
We're only days away from releasing the Platinum Expansion for Farming Simulator 22. Patch 1.8.1 is now available to download and makes the game ready for all those new features, machines, and improvements.
On top of that, we included Intel XeSS support, improved the AI and added a plethora of other optimizations. Start downloading and check it out!
The Platinum Expansion and Platinum Edition (base game + expansion) release on November 15th for PC, Mac, PlayStation®5 (PS5™), Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation®4 and Xbox One. Make sure you install patch 1.8.1 to make the expansion run and be able to operate all the 40+ machines included in the expansion!
Not only is the patch preparing the game for Platinum, it brings various optimizations. Including general performance improvements as well as an improved AI behavior in certain situations. You can also enjoy new options to define variable lengths for wood harvester cutting, and more.
To make the entry into the series a bit more beginner-friendly, we also revised the entire help section in the game. Find the complete changelog below!
Intel XeSS (Xe Super Sampling) is an upscaling feature of Intel Arc Alchemist graphics cards. Similar to NVIDIAs DLSS and AMDs FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR), it renders Farming Simulator 22 at a lower resolution and then upscales it using machine learning and dedicated AI hardware of the GPU. The result: improved performance while maintaining high image quality. Find out more about Intel XeSS on Intel.com!
We're proud to welcome HELM to Farming Simulator 22 with new fertilizer and herbicide available in the "objects" category of the virtual dealership where you find big bags to fill your spreaders and sprayers.

Please Note! As with all major updates to Farming Simulator, you may experience stuttering on the first game launch after updating. Especially when using mods or custom graphics settings due to shaders being recompiled.
