FarmVille hooked Facebook users on virtual farm management, but a new farming simulator introduces Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 gamers to crop and livestock responsibilities.

Farming Simulator is a game that has already gained notoriety in Europe and Asia and is set for U.S. released on November 19. The game landed on the Top 20 list in Japan.

According to a release, the game recreates the subtleties of modern agriculture and offers up an open world where players have the opportunity to take on the challenges of a modern day farmer.

The game doesn’t match the real world, dirt under your fingernails experience, but users will face real life challenges and opportunities to grow their agricultural industry. From planting and harvesting crops to purchasing animals and selling byproducts from the livestock, the game shows users some of the management skills necessary to operate a farm and feed the world.

The game grants players access to a large fleet of authentic agricultural vehicles, faithfully reproduced from the biggest manufacturers in the industry, and includes large machinery capable of laboring the vast fields of the new American environment.
