The video was released as part of an account-protected Insider update, and it focuses on a crucial part of any proper flight simulator, the cockpit.

While this time around the footage isn’t focusing on the game’s incredible vistas, it’s no less impressive if you’re passionate about flight simulation because the folks at Asobo seem to be really going all-out with their cockpits.

We get to see advanced lighting and materials, super-detailed analog gauges, glass cockpit tech that simulates touch screens, a dynamic camera system, and even simulated checklists. 

The checklist simulation is likely the most impressive part, letting players start from “cold and dark” and start-up their aircraft in a realistic fashion, letting the immersion flow even before the propeller starts spinning. Of course, if you’d rather just fly, the game can handle this part for you.

You can watch it below.

If you’d like to see more, you can enjoy the trailer released at X019, alongside a gallery of screenshotsa video from a few weeks ago showing the work that has been done to reproduce the world in fine detail, and one showcasing the advanced aerodynamics simulation.

You can also take a look at the original announcement from E3 2019.

Microsoft Flight Simulator is slated for a 2020 release for PC and Xbox One.

Proud weeb hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long-standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality), MMORPGs, and visual novels are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans on Earth of the flight simulator genre.
