Farming Simulator 2013: news and videos


Farming Simulator 2013

Peripheral maker Mad Catz and Farming Simulator developer Giants Software are working on a range of Saitek-branded hardware for the PC simulation game we can't seem to stop talking about. The controller, which is planned for release this holiday season (price TBA), will work with Farming Simulator 2013, 2015, and future installments. I feel like a spy looking at this silly image.

This page breaks down the features: "...you'll be driving your vehicle with a properly tilted, center sprung steering wheel with 900 degrees of turning and a wheel turning knob—just like the real thing! On the wheel, a Mini-stick controls your movement when not in your vehicle and real buttons allow you to use your in-game PDA. Gas and brake pedals come standard with the wheel, too."

Besides the wheel, there's a Side Panel with "...a Front Loader Control Stick to give you precise control of your vehicle's front attachments and fully programmable buttons for tool attach/detach, tool switching, reverse, lights, horn, cruise control, and more!"

If it's a true simulation you're after, might as well go all in. Or use the controller to beat Dark Souls.
