Gamescom 2021: Discover Microsoft Flight Simulator in a Volocopter

Whilst helicopters are not formally coming to Microsoft Flight Simulator yet, you’ll be able to experience something similar with the upcoming Volocopter coming soon to the simulator.

Announced as part of the Gamescom 2021 Xbox presentation, the Volocopter has been developed in conjunction with the aircraft manufacturer. As a result, the Volocopter will come with accurate modelling and data so you can get a realistic flight as you soar over the world.

The Volocopter is a unique aircraft in that it is powered by 12 rotors and will act as an air taxi around major cities to ‘Voloports.’ The aircraft type can take off and land vertically and is powered electrically, making it a great way to transport people around cities in an environmentally friendly manner.

When we spoke to Jorg Neumann, Head of Microsoft Flight Simulator, he said that the team has had to consider what these ports will be like in the future since they don’t exist in today’s world. When the Volocopter releases, a number of Voloports will be included in Paris giving you the chance to be a virtual Volocopter pilot transporting people around the busy French city.

Expect the Volocopter to land on Microsoft Flight Simulator this coming November.
