Farming Simulator 22 Launching New Multiplayer Modes for Esports Events and More

As the professional Farming Simulator League (FSL) prepares for Season Five, Farming Simulator 22 has upgraded its multiplayer component with new and free competitive modes for everyone: Both the Bale Stacking Mode and Arena Mode are now available on PC and consoles. Publisher and developer GIANTS Software released the new multiplayer modes as part of patch 1.10 as well as this launch trailer.

Stacking Bales for the Highscore

What started out as a joyful highlight at international gaming events, is now playable at home with up to six players competing: stacking square bales of straw on a trailer while a timer applies the same pressure as a high-performance bale press that plays a major role in the Arena Mode. Both are now accessible through the esports entry in the main menu of Farming Simulator 22.

Team-Based Arena Mode Requires Strategy

Known from the FSL, the Arena Mode opens up to everyone, without the requirement of registering for the international esports league. Two teams, consisting of up to three players each, compete for the highscore by harvesting wheat, pressing bales and delivering them to their barn. Additional layers of tactical gameplay are ensured through a pick and ban phase, randomized power-ups and multiple strategic approaches possible. There’s also a training mode to make it easy for everyone to check it out – even on their own.

FSL: Season 5 Starting Soon

With the competitive multiplayer modes officially available, the esports league transitions onto Farming Simulator 22. Season 5 resumes live on stage at FarmCon 23, taking place on July 1st and 2nd in Lauingen, Germany.

With HELM AG, a new main sponsor powers the FSL, and participating teams look forward to a prize pool worth 200,000 Euros. Anyone interested in joining the league after testing their skills in Farming Simulator 22, can register a team at

Farming Simulator 22 is available for PC, Mac, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
