UPDATE: Unfortunately, we have to temporarily suspend the giveaway. Our official Twitter account has been suspended due to a copyright issue. Our boss posted videos of herself singing Ariana Grande at E3 about three years ago and that finally did them in, that was the last straw.
While it sounds like a joke, it, unfortunately, isn’t, so we have to wait and see if we can recover the account. As soon as we know what’s up, we’ll restart the giveaway.
Microsoft Flight Simulator has been out for six months, but the third-party industry is just getting started.
Orbx is a major player in the industry providing a Steam-like client with Orbx Central, creating great scenery, and playing hosts to the add-ons from many relevant developers including airports, scenery, aircraft, and utilities.
Today we team up with Orbx to share some of that love with a brand new giveaway.
By participating, you can win one of ten Microsoft Flight Simulator add-ons from Orbx’s growing catalog including airports, scenery, aircraft, and utilities from Orbx itself and from all of its partners like Gaya, Drzewiecki Design, and many more.
Each winner will be able to pick one Microsoft Flight Simulator add-on of their choice. You can find a full list on Orbx’ own website, and there is a lot to choose from.
The way to get involved is really, really easy. Actually, there are two ways.
Five (5) prizes will be randomly drawn among comments made starting today and until March 7 at 11:59 pm EST on all of our articles on Microsoft Flight Simulator. Reviews, news posts, interviews, and anything else related to the sim is fine. Basically, if “Microsoft Flight Simulator” is in the headline, comments on that article are eligible.
The more you comment, the better your chances. We want to hear your opinions and insight, and there is no better way for that to happen than sharing your comments with us.
An important caveat is that comments on this post are not eligible for the giveaway. Of course, you’re welcome to comment here, but in order to participate, you need to comment at least on one other article.
Of course, spam comments and throwaway one-liners will be disqualified, as we’d like to promote interesting commentary and conversations among our readers.
Five (5) prizes will be randomly drawn among those who follow @Twinfinite on Twitter and retweet the following tweet (both conditions are required) before March 7 at 11:59 pm EST.
On March 7 at 11:59 pm EST, all the prizes will be drawn. For those on Twitter, we will send you a private message and we’ll go from there.
For the comments, I will respond to the winning comment, and we’ll also publish a link to it in an update to this post. At that point, you should respond to my comment, and at the same time, send me a mail at [email protected] indicating your Orbx account email and the add-on of your choice. The timing is important, as it’ll prove that you are indeed the winner.
An Orbx account is required to receive the prizes and it can be created for free here. The data you provide will be shared exclusively with Orbx to enable them to deliver the prizes.
If a prize isn’t claimed within three days of the announcement, we will proceed to draw another winner.
Once more, do keep in mind that comments on all Microsoft Flight Simuarticles on Twinfinite (excluding this one) are valid to enter this giveaway. The more you comment, the more chances you have to win.
A few days ago, we published our massive interview with head of Microsoft Flight Simulator Jorg Neumann, who provided a lot of new info about the present and future of the sim.
