Microsoft Flight Simulator is an incredible looking new instalment of the Microsoft Flight Simulator franchise, which will allow players to climb into the cockpit of a wide variety of planes and fly them anywhere on the planet.
The Microsoft Flight Simulator series has been around in some form or another for 36 years now, with the most recent iteration being 2014’s Microsoft Flight Simulator X. This latest instalment of the franchise looks set to blow the others out of the water though, using satellite data and Azure AI to allow players to pilot their planes to any location in the world, with landmarks, cities and landscapes recreated with an incredible amount of detail. The planes on offer vary from agile light planes to massive wide-bodied passenger jets. You’ll be able to create your own flight plans and pilot your planes anywhere in the world, whilst also dealing with realistic weather conditions and day/night cycles.
It looks amazing and the ability to fly anywhere in the world is an enticing prospect. For a glimpse of how breathtaking vistas are going to be you just need to check out the E3 trailer, which is created from gameplay footage captured in real-time.
