Spring has sprung and the sun is finally out, which means it’s time to grab our tools and tend to our crops. Whether you like to explore space, protect your crops from zombies and alien species, or just relax and become the ultimate farmer, we have put together a list of some of the best farming sims from independent developers and discounted them up to 70% off from March 23 to 29 as part of the ID@Xbox Farming Sale on the Xbox Store. Here’s a few seeds to get you started:
Slime Rancher (70% off) Explore a vast alien frontier, build and customize your space ranch. Slime Rancher is the tale of Beatrix LeBeau, a plucky, young rancher who sets out for a life a thousand light years away from Earth on the ‘Far, Far Range’ where she tries her hand at making a living wrangling slimes. With a can-do attitude, plenty of grit, and her trusty vacpack, Beatrix attempts to stake a claim, amass a fortune, and avoid the continual peril that looms from the rolling, jiggling avalanche of slimes around every corner!
Stardew Valley (40% off) You’re moving to the valley! Armed with hand-me-down tools and a few coins, you set out to begin your new life after you inherited your grandfather’s old farm plot in Stardew Valley. Ever since Joja Corporation came to town, the old ways of life have all but disappeared. The community center, once the town’s most vibrant hub of activity, now lies in shambles. But the valley seems full of opportunity. With a little dedication, you might just be the one to restore Stardew Valley to greatness!
Astroneer (50% off) Astroneer is set during the 25th century Intergalactic Age of Discovery, where Astroneers explore the frontiers of outer space, risking their lives in harsh environments to unearth rare discoveries and unlock the mysteries of the universe. Work together to build custom bases above or below ground, create vehicles to explore a vast solar system, and use the terrain to create anything you can imagine.
Farm Together (35% off) Start from scratch, with a small plot, and end with a huge farm that extends further than the eye can see. Grow crops, plant trees, take care of the animals, and much more! Spend your hard-earned money in new buildings and facilities for your farm, earn experience to unlock hundreds of new items, hop onto your tractor and speed up the tasks, but watch out or you’ll run out of gas.
Farming Simulator 19 (33% off) 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. With over 300 authentic vehicles and machines from all the leading brands, including the prestigious 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!
