Mods on consoles have been a hot topic recently, especially on the Playstation 4 where Bethesda had problems with Sony on releasing mod support. One game that won’t be having problems (at least no foreseeable issues), Farming Simulator 17 when it releases 2 days before Skyrim Enhanced.
Farming Simulator has a massive fanbase that has been using mods on the PC for years, accounting for much of the series success, with fans adding new vehicles, environments, animals, game mechanics, and more.
“The PC community has always shown a great sense of creativity, and demonstrated huge commitment by adding quality content to the Farming Simulator experience,” explains Thomas Frey from GIANTS Software. “This year, with the support of Sony and Microsoft, we will be able to provide a selection of the best mods created by the PC community, and port them to Consoles. These mods will be checked internally before being released in order to meet all of the necessary Console requirements. If PC players benefit from a larger quantity of mods, Console players will be able to continuously enjoy new mods released regularly for free. These mods will guarantee an optimal and renewed gaming experience for all Farming Simulator 17 players.”
Farming Simulator 17 is set to launch on October 25th and is expected to have free mods available at Launch.
