Almost two months after the release of World Update I: Japan, Microsoft Flight Simulator gets a new free update, namely World Update II: USA. This update features an improved elevation model, new aerial textures, four new US airports (Atlanta, Dallas/Fort Worth, Friday Harbor, New York Stewart), new activities, and more.

On September 29, Microsoft released the first free update for the new Flight Simulator, which focused on improving the game experience of those who like to fly over Japan. Now, the time has come for World Update II: USA and this name alone should be enough to make it pretty clear.

According to the Head of Microsoft Flight Simulator Jorg Neumann, "World Update II: USA features an improved digital elevation model with resolution up to one meter, new aerial textures that significantly improve the appearance in several states across the country, and four new hand-crafted airports (Atlanta, Dallas/Fort Worth, Friday Harbor, and New York Stewart)."

In addition to the above, the update also features visual improvements to 48 other airports, 50 new high-fidelity points of interest (all located in the US, of course), new activities on each cost (a Discovery Flight on the eastern side and a Bush Trip across the Alaskan wilderness).

Just like World Update I: Japan, Microsoft Flight Simulator World Update II: USA is free for all players on Xbox Game Pass for Windows 10 PC and Steam. The game should hit Xbox consoles next year, but the launch date is still unknown.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
