Farming Simulator 22 Supports Cross Play

I still can remember when the Farming Simulator franchise was a single player experience through and through. Fun still, yes of course, but owning a farming empire is always more fun with friends, especially since it allows you to expand at an exponential rate. So many people playing farming simulator solo miss out on so much of what the game has to offer just because of time! Then Farming Simulator got multiplayer, and this year, we are getting crossplay as well! Let's take a peak!

Covid is still biting – and game delays are the result

And with hints that more delays are on the way, it could be a difficult few months for gamers everywhere.

Sony’s Horizon Delay Doesn’t Matter this Christmas

2021 isn’t going to be a good holiday season for Sony now that Horizon 2 has been delayed. With blockbusters looking few and far between, a lot of the talk about “the power of exclusives” has aged like milk. This year the viability of the PlayStation 5 will hinge on third-party exclusives and older games, such as Spider-Man: Miles Morales. If you want to play Battlefield or Call of Duty, you can do it here. Albeit, probably at a slightly…
