Farming Simulator 2019: Cotton DLC

As of the morning of July 23rd 2019 Giants Software has released it’s latest DLC. Only this time, it’s all about the cotton!

As most of the die-hard Farming Simulator 2019 players are aware, in the beginning of the development stages of the game, Giants Software went above and beyond to secure new licenses for real brands to be able to have in game. One of those is John Deere.

About the New DLC…

Upon the release of this DLC, players have been able to use yet another iconic piece of American agriculture equipment on their virtual farm. This DLC features the John Deere CP 690 cotton harvester, as well as an array of cotton bale handling equipment from brands like McCormack Industries and Giants Software’s in-house brand “lizard” to go along with it. With that they are adding in a new cotton bale type, the cotton round bale!

What Are All the New Implements?

To go into detail regarding new equipment, allow me to start with the McCormack individual bale handlers. In this pack, there are three types of implements for individual bale handling, one is a bale fork, used for picking up cotton bales from the unwrapped side profiles. The next is an undercarriage style, picking up from the same side as the bale fork, while lifting the bale from underneath, reducing damage to the inside of the bale. The third is an over the top carrier, which grabs from the wrapped round part of the bale, which allows for a different loading style on other vehicles.

As well as individual bale handlers, they are also adding in bale trailers. In total they are adding in three cotton bale trailers, one from McCormack Industies and two from lizard. The McCormack trailer is designed to pick up bales from the wrapped round side and hoist them onto the trailer so they are “sideways”, meaning it has to use rollers and some tipping to offload. The other two are clones of the in-game trailers, but scripted to take round bales.

In Summary…

This DLC adds a few new items to the player’s arsenal of agricultural heavy lifting. It does appear to be a good deal as all the items that were listed above are only five dollars on the Farming Simulator website. Also If you click Here, you can swing over to the official website where you can check it out for yourself and maybe even purchase it!

Image by Victory Lap Games – Blast Zone Tournament

1 March 2019

The highly addictive (IMO), sometimes chaotic, classic bomberman-style competitive bomb-throwing arena game, Blast Zone Tournament is now available on PS 4 and Steam. The thirty-two player, competitve battle tournament game boasts 283 multiplayer maps and 10 competitive modes. Blast Zone also offers up 240 distinct challenges in a story-driven single-player campaign mode.

From the Blast Zone press release:




DETROIT – Jan. 10, 2019 – Blast Zone! Tournament, a modern take on competitive bomb-throwing arena games, explodes out of Early Access on Feb. 28 and rockets onto PlayStation 4 and Xbox One alongside the full Steam release.

Blast Zone! Tournament expands on the frantic fun of Blast Zone!, which has been enjoyed by more than 1,000,000 players, with 32-player multiplayer enhanced by PlayStation 4 to PC and Xbox One to PC cross play, 283 multiplayer maps, a story-driven single player campaign with 240 challenges, more than 10 billion cosmetic combinations and social features, all delivered in 4K HD at 60 FPS on PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X.

Hop quickly into online matchmaking for 32-player battle royale, team knockout, or free-for-all matches in a fast-paced, desperate scurry to blow each other into oblivion. Create custom games and compete solo or on teams to collect coins, protect your king, survive a zombie apocalypse or score the most kills. Work your way up the leaderboards each season in a gameplay experience that’s classic at its core but refined for a modern era.

Thrilling arena battles are fueled by thumping EDM tunes and presented in an exaggerated cartoony style developed by John Wu, a former concept artist at Sony Computer Entertainment of America who worked on Ratchet & Clank, God of War III, and PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale and Twisted Metal.

Respawn Entertainment’s Apex Legends Available Now

04. Feb, 2019


Earlier this week, rumor spread of a new Battle Royale game would be coming from Respawn Entertainment. Now it seems those rumors were accurate; a Battle Royale shooter set in the Titanfall universe was released for free today. Titled “Apex Legends”, this new shooter features eight “Legends” for players to choose from, each with their own unique abilities and style of play. Some legends include an interdimensional teleportation specialist calling herself Wraith, a technological tracker who goes by Bloodhound, and a scout droid with a zip line and grappling hook, all of which look like they may were pulled straight from Titanfall 2‘s multiplayer offerings.

As previously stated, Apex Legends is a new team-based shooter in the burgeoning Battle Royale genre, meaning the last team standing wins. When the game starts, teams choose where they want to drop onto the map using the “Jumpmaster” system. Teams also have access to a ping system, a dedicated button that marks anything on the map; enemies, weapons, ammo, and anything else on the map. This system should allow teams without voice chat to still be able communicate quickly. Lastly, Respawn Beacons are single use locations marked on the map that show where downed allies can be revived. Tread carefully, as players are vulnerable while reviving teammates.

Being a free-to-play game, Apex Legends also includes some microtransactions. These include purchasable cosmetic items and premium currency. The premium currency, Called Apex Coins, can be used to purchase weapons and character skins, Legends (6 are free from the start, two are unlockable), and Apex Packs: loot packs containing any number of cosmetic items, crafting material, or character quips. It should be noted that Respawn saw fit to show the Probability rates of the rarity of items Apex Packs contain.

Respawn seem fully committed to making this a “proper live service game,” and so I think we can expect them to push updates for this regularly. Apex Legends is available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Origin store.
