Agriculture could not be further from playing computer games if it tried, but a man’s mission to turn a real tractor into a gaming controller has come true.

New Zealand’s content creator Rudeism, aka Dylan Beck, was commissioned to convert a huge 10-ton tractor into a working video game controller.

After completing the task on Thursday, Rudeism will stream the results and play Farming Simulator 22 live on Twitch this weekend.

The Case IH Magnum 310 tractor is in the new game one of 400 playable agricultural machines and has been nicknamed "Tractor".

The company has been put together as a promotional piece to celebrate the launch of Farming Simulator 22 in Australia and New Zealand.

This is not the first time Mr Beck has been put to the test and he has previously created video game controllers of a banana, a microwave and even jellybeans.

“My controller buildings have gotten bigger and crazier over the years and for increasingly intense games, so I’m grateful that a relaxing game like Farming Simulator exists to help balance things out,” Beck said.

Farming Simulator 22 is considered the most realistic agricultural game ever, with over 100 authentic agricultural brands and 400 different agricultural machines.

The game is, as you would expect, players are able to grow crops, raise livestock and sell products to create a virtual life.

The first Farming Simulator game was released almost 15 years ago and has since gathered a huge cult following and produced a global convention and an e-sports league dedicated exclusively to the game.
