May is just around the corner and that’s great news for PS Plus members. A new group of games are about to be free. The list was just revealed and one of the better offerings is none other than Farming Simulator 19. It’s a relatively new game that is filled to the brim in fun farming content.

Considering this game normally retails for $39.99, it’s a steal of a deal that PS Plus members shouldn’t pass up on. Even if you’ve never experienced a Farming Simulator game before, there is a lot to mess around with. This latest installment takes things to the next level in the graphics department thanks to an all-new graphics engine. It immerses you like never before in farming vehicles, from tractors to utility vehicles.

Sitting in the captain’s chair seeing beautiful crops that you’re about to harvest is such a memorable experience that you won’t soon forget. The realism is so good — in fact — that there are moments when you feel like you’re on an actual farm completing important tasks in real life. It’s pretty amazing how many details Giants Software put into this game.

If you’ve always wondered what it’s like to be a farmer and have access to some powerful, practical vehicles, then this game shines bright. There are hundreds of different vehicles you’ll have the pleasure of operating. Their mechanics are just as realistic as the graphics, too. A lot of skill is involved, especially for vehicles that are large. You’ll have to turn the wheel just right and make sure everything is lined up perfectly.

When you’re not out driving incredible vehicles, you’ll get to maintain a bevvy of animals. These include pigs, horses, chicken, and sheep. There is a connection that you’ll have with each species. You feel like a proud parent seeing your children grow into healthy adults. You’ll have to keep up with their feeding and cleaning schedule to keep them thriving long-term.

It’s also great that there are plenty of activities to enjoy in open-world environments. The openness makes this game seem limitless and that excitement will stay with you for hours and hours. This is definitely one of the best installments in the long-running series to date. The developer really took their time taking successful elements and expanding upon them in all of the right ways. If you haven’t had the chance to play this series and are a PS Plus member, May is your time to finally shine on the farm.
