Prepar3D v4 Logos and Assets Found On Official Website

Prepar3D V4 Logo

For months, we’ve been giving the community the scoop on the latest rumours and information regarding the long-awaited announcement of Prepar3D v4 in official capacity. We know that the team will be attending Flight Sim Con 2017 in June, and we fully expect them to bring more information about their sim then. With the conference less than a month away, it’s inevitable that things will slip out. One of our readers uncovered that Lockheed Martin have began uploading assets for Prepar3D v4 to their website.

What’s interesting is some of the file names. Some are generic such as “header” and “background”, but you can also see “Prepar3d v4 Large” and more interestingly, “Buy-Now”. Does this mean we could see a release sooner than later?
