Real Life NZ Tractor Converted to Farming Simulator 22 Game Controller
In a world first, New Zealand game streamer Dylan “Rudeism” Beck created the “Tractroller”, transforming the ingenuity of Kiwi at eleven. Christchurch-based Rudeism is famous for converting all kinds of items for use as controllers in popular video games, including a wand, grenade, and even a microwave.
Australian video game distributor Five Star Games has teamed up with New Zealand’s Rudeism to create what could be the best agricultural partnership in the A / NZ region since the 1990s Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement. Rudeism wired a Fully functional Case IH Magnum 310 tractor, weighing almost ten tons, to be used as a controller to play the new Farming Simulator 22 video game from GIANTS Software.
The Case IH tractor that Beck uses to play the game is a new addition to Farming Simulator 22’s list of over 100 genuine brands and over 400 genuine agricultural machines. By tying a few wires here, a few buttons there, the Case IH Magnum 310 is now a fully functional game controller.
Speaking on the Trans-Tasman Tractroller partnership, Beck says: “Working on building a tractroller has been an absolute dream of mine since I turned my old Honda into a controller to play a racing game ago. years. My versions of controllers have gotten bigger and bigger and crazier over the years, and for more and more intense games, so I’m thankful that a relaxing game like Farming Simulator exists to help balance things out.
Five Star Games Managing Director Darren MacBeth said, “Rudeism has created some of the most original controllers since time immemorial, and asking them to work on the world’s best farming game has been an honor. We hope this will inspire people to give farming a try, whether it’s picking up a copy of the game or getting their hands dirty. Or both!”
Farming Simulator 22 players will enjoy a wide variety of farming operations focused on farming, ranching and forestry. Real machines from Case IH, CLAAS, DEUTZ-FAHR, Fendt, John Deere, Massey Ferguson, New Holland, Valtra and many more are playable in the game in three different American and European environments.
The exciting addition of seasonal cycles and production chains in Farming Simulator 22 combine to deliver the most realistic farming experience that players can enjoy from their own living room.
