(Update July 28, 2019 – I’ve made a more updated page on the Claas DLC. Click here to open it.)
The Farming Simulator 19 Platinum DLC will be released in October, later this year. And during the 2019 version of FarmCon (held at the Claas headquarters in Harsewinkel, Germany), Claas was introduced as the big brand of the upcoming expansion pack (can’t say I’m surprised… 😉)
Claas DLC in Farming Simulator 19 (FS19)
After John Deere was introduced as the new brand for FS19, a lot of players wondered when Claas would join the party. And they didn’t have to wonder for too long.
It wasn’t long after the FS19 release that it was announced that a) this year the FarmCon would be held at the Claas headquarters in Germany, and b) that Claas had signed a licensing partner agreement with Giants Software.
Now, we know what the first results of the deal between Claas and Giants are. And boy! We are impressed. When Claas enters the FS train, they come in full force! Just take a look at the teaser trailer:
Here are some of the models we spotted in the Platinum teaser trailer:
One Claas Tucano 580 Combine Harvester
The Claas Disco Mower
A Class Baler
Probably the Claas Jaguar Forage Harvester
It’s a Claas Axion Tractor
See the Claas Cargos Trailer?
I did read somewhere that the Claas DLC contains 35 objects. In addition to the models mentioned already, I’ve also seen in-game images of the Lexion combine. So this expansion just gets better and better 🙂
If you pre-order the DLC, you’ll also get the Claas Dominator combine and the Claas Torion Wheel Loader.
New FS19 Map too?
Platinum DLCs from Giants have contained one new map since FS 2013. What about the FS19 DLC? No words on a new map, at least not yet. I guess we’ll know more when the official DLC preorder page goes live (Monday July 29, 2019 – in two days…)
