Farming Simulator 17 has set a new record in the Christmas rush - one million players have already acquired the game on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. This is almost twice the sales of the previous instalment at launch, which has since sold over 3 million copies in two years.
PC remains the premier platform with half the sales - the majority of PC players bought their copy in-store, placing Farming Simulator 17 at the top of the store PC charts in many territories including France and Germany.
Farming Simulator is also a record-breaker on Steam, with over 220,000 digital copies sold on this platform. The game is one of the top-played on Steam, with a highly positive user rating (over 90% positive reviews).
Although Farming Simulator 17 released on two consoles, versus four consoles for the previous edition, the game was number one for in-store sales on all platforms on day one in Germany. It also placed at No. 3 in Scandinavia, No. 4 in France and No. 5 in England, despite the competition of blockbuster releases during the same period.
