Gamescom 2021: Microsoft Flight Simulator World Update 6 Previews and Info

Coming straight from the Microsoft Gamescom 2021 Xbox presentation, a brand new selection of screenshots and info for World Update 6 has been released. World Update 6 will bring huge improvements to the imagery around Austria, Germany and Switzerland.

The new world update will bring with it numerous new photogrammetry cities such as Frankfurt, Basel, and Vienna along with plenty of new points of interest. Points of interest include Heligoland (Germany), Melk Abbey (Austria) and Chillon Castle (Switzerland). In addition to the updated cities, the resolution for the mesh in the area has been increased to up to 7cm, meaning the Alps will look sharper than ever.
