For a short time, the popular Farming Simulator 19 can be downloaded completely free of charge. Better still, it can be kept forever. With over 300 true-to-life vehicles, you can try out one of Germany's most popular PC games as a modern farmer.
Alex Alderson,

According to Wikipedia, the agricultural simulator from Astragon Entertainment is the most successful computer game from Switzerland and is one of the most popular titles in countries like Germany. While Farming Simulator 19 only averaged 73 out of 100 possible points on Metacritic, a "mixed or average" score by the website's standards, you can now take a look at the game without having to spend US$30 or so.

Because from now until February 6, Epic Games is giving away the game in its store. All you need to download and keep the game is an Epic Games account, which you can create with an email, Facebook, Google, PlayStation, Xbox or Nintendo Switch account, along with the Epic Games Launcher. The offer only applies to the standard edition of the game and is free until 16:00 GMT. Astragon describes Farming Simulator 19, which only came out in November 2018, as follows:

The ultimate farming simulation returns with a complete graphics overhaul and the most complete farming experience ever! Become a modern farmer and develop your farm on two huge American and European environments, filled with exciting new farming activities, crops to harvest and animals to tend to.

Drive over 300 authentic vehicles and machines now including John Deere - but also Case IH, New Holland, Challenger, Fendt, Massey Ferguson, Valtra, Krone, Deutz-Fahr, and many more. Grow your farm online with other players, and download community created mods for an ever-expanding Farming Simulator experience!
