Today Microsoft and Asobo released a new development update for Microsoft Flight Simulator.
We hear a firm release date for the upcoming free World Update focusing on the UK alongside a few screenshots.
The update is going to go live on February 11.
The images focus on England and Scotland, but we know Wales is also included and Ireland should get some content as well.
London, Birmingham Oxford, Cambridge, and Bristol will get new photogrammetry alongside 70 points of interest, a brand new digital elevation map, and five airports (Manchester Barton (EGCB), Liverpool John Lennon (EGGP), Land’s End (EGHC), Barra (EGPR), and Out Skerries (EG78).
“World Update 3 content is complete and is in the final test phase. The photogrammetry cities are in place and look great. We anticipate that the update will be ready for you on February 11th and the team appreciates your continued patience and understanding. We are looking forward to releasing this content to you! Below you’ll find a few images of the upcoming update.”
