cattle and crops xbox

We’ve seen Toplitz Productions get busy in recent times, delivering a huge range of gaming types to PC and console. After the recent launch of Farmer’s Dynasty though, it’s obvious that is where the interest is, and that means a combination of TopLitz with the development team at Masterbrain Bytes should be one to excite – particularly now that the farming title Cattle & Crops has been confirmed for PC and console.

The farming sim created by Masterbrain Bytes is currently in early access form on PC (Steam), but the big news is that a console launch is planned too – and we’d expect that to see Xbox One and PS4 launches at the very minimum. Whilst a full release date is unknown, anyone interested in the farming landscape should be wanting to keep an eye on this one, as it aims to provide a realistic agricultural simulation, including features such as dynamic weather (which influences growing cycles), soil conditions, real-world farming equipment, and much more.

The overall goal of the game is not only to provide a fun simulation of life on the farm, but also teach the player about agriculture, and that is what we should expect from Cattle & Crops.

“Cattle and Crops will deliver a veritable cornucopia of farming features that should please fans of simulations and especially agricultural simulations,” said Stefan Berger, Head of Business Development & Sales, Toplitz Productions. “We are very excited to add the game to our portfolio and are pleased to partner with Masterbrain Bytes to help them finish it.”

“Our goal was to find a publisher that would understand and share our vision of a farming simulation and can support us in the development process,” said Lars Beinsen, Managing Director of Masterbrain Bytes. “With Toplitz, we have found this partner at every level. We are very much looking forward to the cooperation and the new possibilities that this partnership will bring to the project in the future.”

German agricultural publishing house, Landwirtschaftsverlag, has also entered into the publishing partnership for Cattle and Crops, providing consulting services for the game and allowing Masterbyte Brains an inner knowledge in order to bring an authentic realism to the game, while also assisting in marketing Cattle and Crops.

“Working together with developer Masterbrain Bytes and publisher Toplitz Productions, we believe our expertise will ensure Cattle and Crops is an incredibly realistic farming simulation,” said Malte Schwerdtfeger, Managing Director of the Landwirtschaftsverlag.

In Cattle and Crops, players will get to experience how exciting life in the country can be, especially when working the land with heavy-duty farming equipment. But it’s not all fun and games as farming is a serious business, so aspiring agri-giants will need to maximize their farm’s output by balancing growing cycles with marketplace needs, all while handling day to day tasks like caring for livestock and maintaining equipment! In the game, a wide variety of aspects of agricultural life are portrayed, including detailed machinery, authentic sowing, fertilizing and harvesting, complex livestock farming, and even realistic weather and natural conditions. Cattle and Crops will not only appeal to casual gamers but will also delight simulator enthusiasts.

  1. As a farm sim player since FS 15 (XBOX 360 & now Xbox 1), with Pure Farming, Real Farm, FS 17, FS 18 (android), FS 19, and Farmers Dynasty in the collection. Impaicently await the arrival of Cattle & Crops, as well as FS 21(or 22?). Would just like to see an update to Farmers Dynasty that would resolve the save game issues that are being experienced. As Farmers Dynasty seems to be a good amount of “work” to progress (most certainly not a complaint) it is disheartening to lose that progress. High hopes Cattle & Crops well be farther developed upon release ( even if it takes longer). I thank you for passing along great news to the future of farm Sims.
