Orbx Previews Products Coming to Microsoft Flight Simulator and Pricing Strategy


In a huge post over on the Orbx forums, the scenery development studio has given us a huge look into what products they are currently working on  for the new Microsoft Flight Simulator. Alongside airports, Orbx has announced a new series called Landmarks which will start covering cities in even more detail than what the base simulator will provide. Alongside the previews, a new pricing strategy has been announced during the launch window with products now costing less than $20.00 USD.

Orbx announced that at launch, or shortly after, there will be several products from the Orbx team which will be ready to buy through OrbxDirect and the upcoming Microsoft FlighSim Marketplace. As mentioned before, the pricing for these products will range from $7.99 USD to $19.99 USD. If you are a previous owner of the product for either Prepar3D, X-Plane or Aerofly FS 2, you will get a 40% saving on those products. It’s worth noting that the products need validating in order to get the discount and thus will only be available via OrbxDirect.

As for the products, in total eight were shown off including classics such as Innsbruck (LOWI), London City (EGLC) and a new product called Landmarks London. Let’s dive into each of them now.
