PostMicrosoft Flight Simulator (PC) - Powered by satellite data and Azure AI - 2020

It was cool to see this making a return, and it certainly looks pretty. I'm not bothered about the flight simulation part, but if you can also just turn on easy mode and simply explore the world, this could be a pretty way of doing it

Witty biological-political hybrid jokes are the reason this place fails to cater to a wide audience

It's going to be really interesting to see just how detailed cities and terrain can become on a next gen version.
It could become quite a graphical showcase.

Quite like the look of this, just even for exploring the world.

Have to say I was a bit disappointed when they revealed this was “just” a new Flight Simulator.

The graphics are incredible.

Oh, nice. I didn’t pay attention to that bit last night as I assumed it was PC-only.

I never thought I'd see the day when a new MS Flight Simulator was announced. I'm incredibly happy at this.

I'm already day one, but VR support on PC would make this essential I think.

Check out some of our stuff!

oh man, the amount of money I spent on FSX :slol:

Might pick this up, if there was one thing about FSX was that it was incredibly pretty ( especially with scenery and weather addons)and this looks to be the same.

I want to know which dev is making it because a lot of the devs for MS flight sim ended up going to Lockheed Martin.

A decade ago was 2009 friend.

:cry:

This looks really amazing, I wonder if they'll come out with a combat version as well.

About two to three years ago I was looking to see if Microsoft had updated this - and now they have. My understanding was that this is a proper realistic sim where you have to learn to fly so I hope there will be a more accessible mode. All I want to do is have some great relaxing flights past real world locations, land a bit, fly up again and maybe crash into things if that is still allowed.
