STOCKHOLM, Sweden. 17th November 2022 — Coffee Stain Publishing, Coffee Stain North and PLAION are excited to announce that Goat Simulator 3 has been released into the world. It’s too late now; the pen is open, the goats are free.
Goat Simulator 3 is available right now exclusively via the Epic Games Store on PC, as well as PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S.
Watch the launch trailer here
Today, players are invited to crash, grind, drive, wallrun and headbutt their way through the picturesque island of San Angora, a brand new giant sandbox playground covering an area of 1,141,822 Square Goats* (compared to the original Goat Simulator’s mere 60,900 Square Goats - that’s over 18 times bigger in boring language).
Players can either roam solo or herd together for up to four-person multiplayer, competing in minigames, completing quests, and uncovering the mysteries of a secret goat society - just normal goat things.
- GOATS: You play as a goat! Pilgor, to be exact. However, you’ll also have the chance to wear the skins of many other ‘goats’. Tall goats, tasty goats, angry goats - all the goats you expect and more.
- MULTIPLAYER: Your friends play as goats too! Goat Simulator 3 has 4 player co-op, locally or online. You’ll be able to travel through the world together, cause cooperative mischief aplenty, and compete in 7 fun multiplayer mini-games, and then not be friends anymore.
- EXPLORATION: Goat Simulator 3’s giant new sandbox has plenty to discover - hidden secrets, quests, collectables and the devs actually bothered to make an ending this time! Use your own four hooves to get around, grind on your butt or buckle up for the ride of your life as all goats can drive cars*.
- CHAOS AND REACTIVITY: Cause all manner of mayhem as you lick, headbutt, crash and explode your way across the map, leaving no NPC unannoyed. Toy with the universally recognised four elements (Fire, Electricity, Oil and Alien Goo), test the limits of the world’s physics and interact with suspicious objects for… surprising results.
- CUSTOMISATION: Players can fully customise their goat’s Head, Back, Feet, Body, Horns and Furs with over 300 different gear parts to choose from - from toilet rolls to tea trays… and other actual clothing items, if you want to be like that. Some gear parts will mutate your playstyle by giving you new abilities, all will alter your perceived sense of style.
Santiago Ferrero, Creative Director at Coffee Stain North said: “The time has come for us to ask people nicely to buy our stupid game. I can’t tell you if Goat Simulator 3 is worth the money, but I can tell you we sure spent a lot making it, so toss a coin to a developer and help us out because we have so many more silly ideas we want to unleash onto the world!. On behalf of everyone at Coffee Stain North, we’re sorry or you’re welcome depending on what you think!”

Goat Simulator 3 is available right now on PC via the Epic Games Store, as well as PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S.
Notes to Editors
* Yes the devs really measured the map in Square Goats. This technical measurement was achieved by placing repeating character models of the goat protagonist Pilgor nose to tail around the perimeter of the map and then doing some primary school level maths. No they don’t have anything better to do with their time.
About Goat Simulator
Goat Simulator 3 is a direct sequel to Goat Simulator, a silly game that started life as an April Fool’s joke born out of a game jam. In 2014, Goat Simulator became a true goat simulation sensation, selling millions of units across consoles and PC, as well as ‘earning’ ports to Nintendo Switch, iOS, Android, and most-recently Apple Arcade.
Goat Simulator 3 builds on everything fans of the first game loved, raising the baa to brand new heights (sometimes literally). Goat Simulator 3 is coming to PC exclusively on the Epic Games Store, as well as Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 5 on 17th November 2022.
