Today third-party add-on developer Orbx announced its initial lineup for Microsoft Flight Simulator, and it’s a very rich one.
Interestingly, the add-ons listed below will be available at or soon after Microsoft Flight Simulator’s launch, and they’ll be priced between $7.99 to $19.99.
As an added bonus, simmers who already own the same scenery for other sims will get a 40% discount. That applies only to Orbx’s own shop as the previous purchase needs to be verified-. That being said, the same add-ons will also be available at full price on the Microsoft FlightSim Marketplace.
Here’s a list of the scenery announced for the moment.
