The game has also featured a multiplayer feature in many of the games. But it was never a huge feature in the game because many people preferred to play alone. This is a rather interesting feature though as you are able to join a friends world and help them out with farming. This has many benefits and can help a player progress though the game at an accelerated pace. Many players consider this cheating, which is why there isn’t more multiplayer features.
Ever thought about farming in space? If your wondering what space farming may look like then why not take a look at Starbound. The game is not typical of many of the Farming Simulator 2017 features.
Starbound does feature many opportunities for players to get involved in a little gardening. When your not busy out defending the galaxy and completing missions. You can return back to your home planet where you can create a town. Here players can choose to build farms in which they can grow crops. These crops can then be sold or used in crafting or cooking. This may not be everyone’s idea of a farming simulator, but it’s worth a try if you are looking for something new.
Although Don’t Starve Together is not a farming simulator, you will find much of your time in game having to attend to farmland that you have set up. Players must find seeds, plant them, water them on a daily basis and of course harvest them. This is a core game play mechanic in the game. Because if you forget to live off the the land then you will find yourself in the danger zone pretty quick. If your a fan of Farming Simulator 2017 and you would like something a little more fantasy based.
