Microsoft Flight Simulator Update – Multiplayer, Development Roadmap, and more

Microsoft Flight Sim Update 3 26 (3)

Watch our breakdown video now:

== Original Article ==

Microsoft has updated their regular blog website, and this update includes the Feature Discovery Series on Multiplayer, a new development roadmap, an update on the alpha, and more.

Feature Discovery Series

Starting with the feature discovery series episode, this episode covered multiplayer and how it would be implemented into the simulator. There are two main variants of multiplayer. One is Live Players. This is for the pilots that was a more realistic experience where everyone follows the rules and regulations. All Players is where people dont need to follow the rules of flying and can be more flexible if you want to try a new plane or explore somewhere. You can also create your own group and can add players, and you can do whatever you want. Watch the full video for more information.

Episode 8, IFR, is scheduled for release in mid April.

Development Roadmap

The latest version of the development roadmap for April and May has been released, and here it is.


Feedback Screenshot

The feedback screenshot is the same as 2 weeks ago, but here it is again in case you missed it.



The next alpha build is currently in preparation for release, and is expected to be released early next week.

The team is currently discussing the current participation strategy for alpha invitations, and are focusing on these top 3 things.

  • Ensure that everyone that received an acceptance email has access to the Alpha.
  • Ensure that those that registered early for pre-release build testing, have access to the Alpha.
  • Assess Alpha participation options for adding more people as quickly as possible.


Lastly, Microsoft has once again shared plenty of new screenshots of the simulator.

Be sure to check back with Microsoft’s feeds for more info, and be sure to check back here for more updates when they become available as well.

I’ve been a very passionate flight simmers for over 12 years now and am one of the biggest AvGeeks you will meet. I make cinematic flight sim videos, and I also do a lot of real-world plane spotting in my free time. My favourite aircraft is the Boeing 747, and I always enjoy learning more and more about aviation and flight simming.
