Flight Simulator fans will be excited to learn that Microsoft’s all-new Flight Simulator will officially launch on PC on August 18. Microsoft first revealed it was well into the development of the game back in June last year and has since been ironing out the kinks through lengthy public alpha and beta testing. Work is near wrapped for the launch date and is likely to trigger sales of joysticks and flight yokes as one of the most comprehensive flight simulators ever made.

The aircraft are highly detailed with everything from light planes to commercial jetliners thoroughly modeled on the original cockpits with realistic instrumentation The game scales across the entire planet with over 37,000 airports, 1.5 buildings and over 2 trillion trees and other landscape features all captured and brought to life. It also features dynamic weather that reflects real-world atmospherics in real-time.

Flight Simulator will be available in three editions including the standard edition (US$60 – 20 planes and 30 detailed airports), deluxe edition (US$90 – 25 planes and 35 detailed airports) and the premium deluxe edition (US$120 – 30 planes and 40 detailed airports). Microsoft is also promising ongoing content updates that will continually evolve and expand the platform.

I have been writing about consumer technology over the past ten years, previously with the former MacNN and Electronista, and now Notebookcheck since 2017. My first computer was an Apple ][c and this sparked a passion for Apple, but also technology in general. In the past decade, I’ve become increasingly platform agnostic and love to get my hands on and explore as much technology as I can get my hand on. Whether it is Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, Nintendo, Xbox, or PlayStation, each has plenty to offer and has given me great joy exploring them all. I was drawn to writing about tech because I love learning about the latest devices and also sharing whatever insights my experience can bring to the site and its readership.
