Lawn Mowing Simulator, if the title doesn’t quite narrow it down for you, is a simulation about lawn mowing. And not just any old side yard, no: we’re talking about the green grass of the Great British Countryside, trimmed and tamed by “an authentic and expansive roster of real-world licensed lawn mowers from reputable manufacturers” Including Skag Power. Tool, STIGA, and Toro.
New ancient britain The DLC that went live on Steam today enables you to step up your lawn care game even further, by giving you access to four brand new locations drawn from deep (and fictional) British history: Royal Stones, Druids Tor, Ancient Auroch, and Auroch Hill.
I expected the DLC to turn your mower into a sort of weed-eating hot tub time machine, which would throw me back into the distant past to take me through the yards of mighty druids and forgotten kings. Alas, it doesn’t: instead, players become virtual bases of these historic sites, discovering “quintessentially British ruins” while mowing their historically significant lawns.
Each location in the DLC is charming and cool, but not without challenge: The mower can easily roll down steep slopes, and if you do any damage by running over plants or hitting a rock or tree, it’s worth your pay. Will come out ,
Ancient Britain DLC for Lawn Mower Simulator goes for $9/£7/€9, and possibly comes with an even more exciting game update, free for all players, that adds string trimmers to the game . These essential tools allow you to get off your mower and mow more easily in awkward, tight spaces, “ensuring you stay away from damages fines and do the best job yet.”
The whole thing might sound a little silly, but we tried it out last year and found there was a certain zen quality to the experience—not unlike mowing actual lawns, which are for that kind of people. “I found the experience oddly soothing,” Andy Kelly wrote in his preview. “There’s something deeply satisfying about being buzzed around these idyllic English gardens, giving lifeless lawns a trim. You can almost smell the freshly cut grass while you play.”
And now you can smell the history too.
