It would appear that our stockings could contain FSLabs’ A320X for Prepar3d.
With FSLabs having a successful launch of their fantastic A320 for FSX back in August, Prepar3d users have been left wondering when their Sim would see the addon. It was confirmed that it would be a few weeks / months after the FSX release, but we’re not biting at the bit to get our hands on the desktop aircraft sim.
Since then, the P3D version has officially been shown off publicly. You can see the only P3D screenshot we could find above. When asked about the status of the product, Andrew Wilson stated it was their “intention to get the A320 for P3D out before the holiday season.”
It is certainly our intention to get the A320 out for P3D before the holiday season.
Whether “holiday” means Thanks Giving or Christmas is unknown. Either way, to know it’s still on track for 2016 is great news.
The focus is on performance for FSLabs’ A320
Andrew then went on to talk about that the main items are complete, and that the “focus” is on performance.
At this stage, most of the items we had wanted to focus on for the P3D build are completed and we’re now focusing on making additional optimisations, in an effort to squeeze a little more performance out of the aircraft for you.
With many users of the FSX version experiencing a few issues with performance, it was also confirmed that any updates and performance optimisations that were found would then be made available for Flight Simulator X users via an update.
We are super excited to finally have this in-depth A320 in Prepar3d. In the mean time, however, you can purchase the FSX version and then ‘upgrade’ to help spread the cost. It’s expected that the Prepar3d version will cost around $30-$40 more.
Will you be purchasing the FSLabs A320 on launch or is it too expensive?
