Thus, there is a French map not yet named, a little-known US map called "Elmcreek" and the map "Erlengrat" known from Alpine DLC.
In the new LS 22, the seasons now change completely automatically, which was not the case until now. In addition, there will now also be productions for the first time. Then, for example, the corn can be driven to the mill after the harvest has been brought in, in order to then produce flour here. Then it goes on to the bakery for the production of baked goods. These can then be sold or delivered to a supermarket. Whether you take care of the transport of the goods yourself or have this done for a small fee is entirely up to you. Apart from the possibility of productions also new fruit sorts come with the LS 22. Here there are then for example grapes and also olives, with it then also wine and olive oil can be manufactured.
An absolute highlight are the vehicles. The vehicles have a gear shift, completely after the actual reality by hand shift and also the license plates are customizable. The combine harvesters have also received a new feed animation. In this, they have a tilt adjustment, which allows the cutterbar to adapt to the soil at hand. Apart from that, there are now stones on the fields, how these will affect the game is not out yet. In addition, the game characters can be equipped with different clothing.
