Microsoft Introduces Flight Simulator for 40th Anniversary

To celebrate forty years of their famous Flight Simulator game, Microsoft is offering a rather nice extension. This game is older than Redmond’s Super Mario Bros in 1982 and is still a hit today. We’ll take this opportunity to remind you that the Apple II also rebuilt its FS1 flight simulator in 1979, designed by Bruce Artwick (concept creator) and subLOGIC.

Terrible 40th Anniversary Update!

This special edition will feature: four classic commercial airports, ten glider airports, twelve new aircraft (including seven historic ones), fourteen helipads, twenty classic missions from the franchise’s past. It will be possible to use aircraft from previous iterations. Please note that most of these were developed by third parties such as IniBuilds (for the Airbus 310), MilViz, Bluemesh or even Airplane Heave.

In terms of novelties, note in the Historic Aircraft category: Wright Flyer, Curtiss JN-4 Jenny, Ryan NYP (Spirit of St. Louis), Douglas DC-3, Grumman G-21 Goose, Havilland DHC-2 1947. Beaver, Hughes H-4 Hercules. As for helicopters, these are Bell-407 and Guimbal Cabri G2. And for seeders DG Flugzeugbau LG8-18 and DG Flugzeugbau DG1001E neo. And for Airbus A310 airliners!

Spread through thirteen variations Since its inception, graphics have of course evolved with time and technology. The title is now available on Xbox One, Xbox series, PC and even in cloud games on any possible medium (smartphone, tablet or connected TV). Thus, the latest version has a total of thousands of airports, thirty aircraft, real-time weather, day and night flights, and an extremely realistic world model.
