Giants Software have announced a "full-fledged eSports league" for Farming Simulator in Europe with a total prize pool of 250.000€.
The new league will be held in the new Farming Simulator 19 and will feature 10 tournaments across Europe. The events have progressed from bale stacking we saw in last year's Farming Simulator Championship to a competitive 3 vs 3 mode.
The 250.000€ prize pool will be made up of "big prizes" for each of the 10 tournaments, and 100.000€ in prizes at the finals.
"Competitive farming is something people enjoy for years now, but it hasn’t been done in eSports so far," said Christian Ammann, Giants Software CEO and eSports division manager, via Gamasutra.
