Outdoor battery-powered equipment specialist, EGO Power Plus has partnered with game developers Skyhook Games to become the first battery-powered specialist featured in the latest genre of simulation games, Lawn Mowing Simulator.

Rated PEGI 3, Lawn Mowing Simulator allows players to ride authentic, real-world licensed lawn mowers from prestigious manufacturers and enables users to build their very own lawn care business from the ground up, learning the trade as they progress.

Set in the British countryside, players begin with a handful of tools and small contract jobs, gradually working their way up to unlocking the expansive roster of real-world licensed mowers as well as much larger projects such as beautiful gardens and vast castle grounds. Players can choose from an extensive range of mowers, each with their own challenges and upgrades to unlock, all recreated from real-life outdoor equipment brands. Several attachments are also available from stripe rollers, mulching kits, grass collectors, recyclers, flail decks and more. Mowing skills can also be improved in Free Roam Mode and tested out on a variety of lawn mowing machines in Challenge mode.

EGO is the first battery-powered specialist to join Lawn Mowing Simulator, enabling Skyhook games to introduce sustainability-led contracts to the game, meaning users must use battery-powered equipment to work in environments where fumes and excessive noise are to be kept to a minimum.

Rick Payne, Lead Designer at Skyhook Games comments, "Skyhook Games is thrilled to be partnered with EGO Power Plus and bring their amazing products to Lawn Mowing Simulator. Working with the team at EGO has been a pleasure, giving us incredible access to their Z6 and ST1400E-ST string trimmer to bring the most accurate representation we can to the game."

Emma Gayler, Marketing Manager for EGO (EMEA) says, "We are thrilled to be the first battery-powered specialist to join Lawn Mowing Simulator and are especially excited to see our brand new Z6, the world's first battery-platform compatible zero-turn ride-on mower, join the gaming world. Having seen first-hand the delicate process involved to transition our battery-powered outdoor equipment products into in-game simulators, I have no doubt that players will be impressed with the authentic reality of introducing battery-power into their lawncare business.

"As part of our Challenge 2025 mission to educate on the benefits of battery power compared to petrol, both for the environment and the health of outdoor equipment users, it was important to us that this be represented in the game. Players can therefore expect eco-friendly contracts, quiet aspects, and customers who only want eco-friendly tools used on their gardens. Elements that not only represent Challenge 2025, but also the growing number of people who are becoming more and more conscious of their environmental impact."

EGO on Lawn Mowing Simulator is now available on Windows PC, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S and will be available on PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®5 at a later date.
