Microsoft is working on a new flight sim and this ones ... INSANE.

2 terabytes of map data for the whole game will mean that its streamed as you fly with satellite maps and geography.

The weather system is hugely impressive with a massive focus on cloud formations providing realistic views from below above or inside clouds.

Im not hugely into flight simulators but the way this one looks i think i might have to make some room!

2 terabytes


A ton of room by the sounds of it

Not holding my breath...
Where do people get time to play flight sim these days?

The sim will let you control everything unlike a game that will throw randomly generated instances at you etc.

You want a fast plane with all the controls on auto on the nicest day, No problem! Sit back with your 4k+ wide screen display and enjoy flying around any city, world wonder or even your own house in crystal clear HDR goodness!

Come on, whos ever dreamed about being superman and just flying around for the sheer thrill? I havnt even thought about how this might look on HD VR

I've been keeping an eye on Microsoft flight simulator 2020 since the impressive E3 reveal last year , since they've now said VR is a priority rather than an aspiration the sim has more interest to me and I suspect many others.

I just hope they don't go for a subscription model as the terrain detail is being streamed.
Looking forward to more details as launch time approaches.

I've been watching the recent uploads on YouTube concerning this, and while I'm not a gamer per se', it's definitely got my attention,

Every time I pop to the loo for some peace and quiet, lol

X-Plane 10 Mobile App

Just don't pay for the 747 or the F22, they're impossible to fly without knowing all of the buttons and gizmos


I enjoy it, anyway

How does it handle crashes? Is there terrain damage?

Can I fly a 747 Max into the NY Freedom Tower?

2 TeraBytes ?
Rather than stream , I had rather just download the whole thing.
Streaming is depending too much on server bandwidth.

No , but once upon a time you could fly a B-52 into the Empire State building...
MS Flight Simulator from days of yore.

My first thought is how perfect this would be for a VR setup.

I played the previous installment a bit , just to mess around with a flightstick.

I couldnt land anything bigger then a cesna , with anything bigger i keep missing the poper landing pattern and overshoot

Back in the day i played a few flight games like G-Lock on the game gear, F-16 falcon on the 486x and a few on early consoles. Nothing comes close to the real-ness of this flight simulator. What might they be able to do once this has been out a while, throwing in some combat missions and what-not!

I've been keeping an eye on this too since E3 and have been very impressed so far but I've heard that it is going to follow a subscription service/pay as you play.

Wow amazing. I wonder if you can count this towards your flight time
