During the Xbox Tokyo Game Show livestream, Microsoft and Asobo announced the first world update for Microsoft Flight Simulator.
The update will feature Japan and will come on September 29. As promised earlier this year, it will be distributed for free.
It will include six new hand-crafted airports, six Japanese cities upgraded with photogrammetry, new digital elevation data, new landing challenges and discovery flights, and plenty of landmarks.
This is pretty big news considering that this kind of content coming for free would cost at the very least $100-150 in third-party add-ons in previous flight simulators.
Microsoft Flight Simulator is certainly gorgeous, as you can see in the thousands of images I shared from my recent flight around the world, but it’s awesome to hear that Japan will soon look even better.
Below you can check out the video that was revealed during the show.
