With Microsoft preparing to reboot the storied Microsoft Flight Simulator franchise in 2020, Asobo Studio is showing off its work on the game.
A rather long new video has been published on the official site, but you’ll need a Windows Insider account in order to access it.
Luckily, YouTube user Aquila Simulations uploaded the whole thing for everyone to enjoy.
You can watch it below.
The video is presented by Asobo Studio lead engine programmer Lionel Fuentes, and it focuses on the world of the game. It looks really, really impressive.
Yes. I know. Purists will say it’s not a game, as it’s a simulator, but having played this kind of title since Flight Simulation on the ZX Spectrum, I can tell you that this is what you make of it, and that’s what made the Microsoft Flight Simulator series so good to begin with.
Personal thoughts aside, we hear that recruitment for the first tech alpha will will end on October 15.
Those who are accepted as testers will start receiving the build on October 24
The studio is targeting the second half of November for another tech alpha test, and recruitment for that one will start at the end of October.
The second episode of this video series will be released on October 17, so we won’t have to wait very long to see more.
Microsoft Flight Simulator is slated for a 2020 release for PC and Xbox One.
