PMDG Hoping to Release 777 Update Mid-February

PMDG 777 PBR (1)

A new post from PMDG put the long-awaited 777 updates with an estimated release date of mid-February. PMDG isn’t typically known for announcing a release schedule, but the team continue to push ahead with the update to get it into the hands of simmers as soon as possible. In the latest post from Robert on the PMDG forums, he also details how significant the sounds of the aircraft will change with the free update.

In his post, Robert said that one of the biggest changes was the new customised sound engine. The sound engine was first introduced with the 747 Queen of the Skies II and then further improved with the 737NGXu. He said that the team has gone to the “ends of the Earth to get accurate sound packages for each of the 200ER variants. Furthermore, the original LR variants have also got an improved sound package that will “knock your socks off.” Seeing as how each of the 200ER variants come with distinctly different engines, you will be able to hear each of them sound radically different. The new sound engine also means you will experience the right ambience throughout all phases of flight.

As mentioned, Robert said that team is looking at a mid-February release for the update. There’s no guarantee, of course, but the closest we’ve got for a release date at this point for the update.

The changelog and feature list for the new update is in the “hundreds” for the number of entries, and we should get a forum thread detailing those changes in the future. As for previews images, Robert said that he may allow the beta team to give a look later this week, but there’s a few items being worked on before that can happen.

He concludes the forum post by saying there are a few other items that will “surprise” but will give them a dedicated thread at a point in time in the future.

If you’re looking for more PMDG goodness, check out the previews of the 200ER in action or if you’re looking to fly something a bit more private, then check out the release of the 737NGXu BBJ. Hopefully, we’ll also hear more about PMDG Global Flight Ops in the near future.
