This week has been a big week for Microsoft Flight Simulator with the release of the new United Kingdom and Ireland world update. That update, released on Tuesday, added plenty of new points of interest, new hand-crafted airports and updated 5 primary cities with new photogrammetry technology. To celebrate the big release, a new Spotlight Series has been released focusing on content creators from the UK and Ireland.
In the video, Chewwy94, TwoToneMurphy, ObsidianAnt, and LondonController took to the screen to tell simmers why flight simulation is important to them and why they got involved in the community. It’s inspiring to hear their stories and also to get an insight into how flight simulation is also helping their real-world flying aspirations. We hope to see more of these in the future to get even more insight from various members of the community. You can watch the video now above.
In addition to the spotlight series, Microsoft shared updated versions of the development snapshots and also the feature wishlist. The new development roadmap includes information on a new trailer dropping on March 4th (details TBA), along with a new partnership series release in mid-March. Following on from that, it’s been reconfirmed that World Update IV: Frane and Benelux will release on March 30th.
The next blog update for Microsoft Flight Simulator will be out next week and we should be getting a new partnership series and also an idea on the development roadmap up until May 2021. In the meantime, you can find out more about the UK and Ireland update here.
