Goat Simulator 3 is coming on November 17, 2022.
The upcoming sequel to the original Goat Simulator (no, there is no Goat Simulator 2) will arrive on PC via the Epic Games Store, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S.
“People told us not to beat a dead horse but no one ever said anything about goats, so we’re thrilled to announce Goat Simulator 3’s release date,” said Santiago Ferrero, creative director at Coffee Stain North.
“I wouldn’t exactly say we’re ‘proud’ to be bringing Pilgor’s antics back to players in November, but that’s definitely what we’re doing,” he added. “And at that time of year you won’t have much reason to leave the house anyway – you might as well be playing a new Goat Sim game.”
Goat Simulator 3 was announced just last month with a first-look trailer that spoofs the eight-year-old trailer for Dead Island 2. The game will see players take control of Pilgor the Goat once more, wreaking havoc upon the beautiful, sprawling island of San Angora the only way a goat knows how – with jetpacks, of course.
Goat Simulator 3 digital and physical pre-orders are available now. Goat fans can currently choose between the Goat Simulator 3 Pre-Udder Edition, which comes with additional in-game gear, or the Goat Simulator 3 Digital Downgrade Edition which also includes some remastered content from the original game.
Additionally, the Goat in a Box Edition includes a physical copy of the game as well as a ton of cute merch, such as a Goat plushie, custom Goat box, steelbook, 3 postcards, and a double-sided poster, not to mention a bunch of digital content. You’ll find a copy of the soundtrack, all the standard Pre-Udder Gear, some Remastered Skins and Gear, and even some 3D printing files just in case you fancy 3D printing your own goat, I guess?
Goat Simulator 3 promises to be just as ridiculous as the original game, if not more so – raising the baa (*facepalm*) with 4-Player multiplayer for true goat-based mayhem.
