After organizing the “Farming Simulator Championships” events in 2017 and 2018, video game developer Giants Software announced on Wednesday, Jan. 23, that it is taking the competition to the next level with its very own “Farming Simulator League.”
The video game developer bared details of the upcoming competition on the official “Farming Simulator” website, explaining that it will come up with a “full-fledged Esports league,” kicking off with ten tournaments across Europe this summer.
“[T]he best teams will compete for the title of the Farming Simulator Champion and €100,000 (around P6 million) in prizes,” a statement from Giants Software read.
In preparation for the upcoming league, Giants Software teamed up with big names in the tech industry such as Logitech G and Intel, among others.
“[C]ompetitive farming is something people enjoy for years now, but it hasn’t been done in eSports so far,” the game developer’s CEO Christian Ammann said.
“We have lots of eSports enthusiasts in our company who can’t wait to show the world that farming can indeed be fun and competitive at the same time.”
