It’s one thing to make a game about farming, but it’s another to put your money where your mouth is and actually help out those in the real industry who are doing it tough.

As many Aussie farmers try to deal with one of the worst droughts that they’ve ever encountered, any aid is good aid.

As such, those involved with the Australian release of the upcoming Farming Simulator 19 – Five Star Games, Focus Home Interactive and Giants Software – have contributed a total of $50,000 to Drought Angels. They’re a small charity who provide personalised, heartfelt and discreet assistance to drought-affected families.

“Drought Angels is incredibly grateful to the teams behind the Farming Simulator franchise, who are so generously supporting Australian farmers in their time of need,” said Tash Johnston, co-founder and director of Drought Angels. “This donation allows us to provide much needed practical assistance to front-line farming families and the communities in which they live.”

Farm like never before when Farming Simulator 19 releases for PS4, Xbox One and PC on November 20.
