If you've pre-ordered Farming Simulator 19 from Gamesplanet you'll have also received the additional bonus vehicle, the Mahindra Retriever 1000. In this guide we'll show you how to activate the DLC with the Steam and Giants versions of the game, and where to find it in the game.

For each of these steps you will find a corresponding picture in the gallery under the text sections.
First activate the Steam key for the main game on your Steam client. In your Gamesplanet library, pre-orderers who bought Farming Simulator 19 at Gamesplanet prior to November 20th will find an additional key for the pre-order bonus under "Activation Steam - Preorder Bonus:". You can use this key on Steam after activating the base game."
After activating the Preorder bonus key on Steam, the Mahindra DLC should be visible on the Downlaodable Content for Farming Simulator 19, which you can check via the Steam Library, or by right clicking "Farming Simulator 19" -> Properties and then clicking on the DLC tab.
Activation of the GIANTS keys bypasses the Steam client completely. For help downloading and activating the base game you can take a look at our guide here. In this step, we activate the pre-order bonus. The key can be found in the Gamesplanet library under the main key.
Copy the Preorder Key to the clipboard by highlighting the key and using CTRL + C to copy the code. Then visit the GIANTS site and use CTRL + V to paste the key in the box. Choose either the Windows or MAC version depending on which DLC you want to get from the GIANTS website - https://www.farming-simulator.com/extraContent.php

After successful installation of the DLC (which is handled in-game as a "Mod") you will receive the message "Farming Simulator 19 Mod is successfully installed". Then click "OK" and start the game normally.
