Today Microsoft Flight Simulator developers shared new reveals today about add-ons for Microsoft Flight Simulator, on top of an airport release.
We learn that beta stage 1 is completed and the developer expects to launch beta stage 2 in a couple of weeks. It won’t be released sooner than the end of August.
It won’t come to Xbox initially, mostly due to complex avionics and two sets of 8K textures for the external model. That being said, the developers will try to bring it to consoles at a later time.
Regarding the level of fidelity, they expect users to be able to follow 95% of the real-world checklist even of some systems will not be simulated in detail.
At the moment, 10 liveries have been made, but more could be added before launch.
- Italian Air Force
- Italian Air Force special color
