Microsoft Flight Simulator: Premium Deluxe Game of the Year Edition
Xbox Game Studios
Microsoft Flight Simulator Game of the Year (GOTY) Premium Deluxe Edition celebrates all of the positive feedback, ratings, and awards, but it’s also a “thank you” to our fans, new and old, who have made Microsoft Flight Simulator such a phenomenon. The Microsoft Flight Simulator Premium Deluxe Game of the Year Edition contains 35 highly detailed airplanes with unique flight models and 48 handcrafted airports. This expanded edition introduces Simmers to five brand new aircraft, eight new handcrafted airports, six new discovery flights, new tutorials and updates to the weather system. The five new handcrafted airplanes in Microsoft Flight Simulator include: • Boeing F / A-18 Super Hornet: Our first military jet and a popular feature in the community. The Top Gun: Maverick expansion will release with the movie next spring, but we wanted Simmers to have the chance to test their need for speed this vacation. • VoloCity: We have teamed up with the well-known German company Volocopter, which is working on an eVTOL called “VoloCity”, a vision for an urban air taxi. We worked closely with the Volocopter engineering team to develop an authentic version of the aircraft prototype for the simulator. This is our first aircraft that can make pinpoint landings and is a foretaste of what you can look forward to in 2022 when we want to launch helicopters in the simulation. • Pilatus PC-6 Porter: This legendary short take-off and landing aircraft (STOL) is a very versatile aircraft from Switzerland and has several cockpits, cabins and landing gear variants. It is the result of our close collaboration with the maker and developer of the flight simulation audience to further improve our bush fly and off-airport options. • Aviat Pitts Special S1S: One of our most popular aircraft is getting a single seat option with the release of this aircraft. New airports – We are adding eight handcrafted airports in Central Europe and the USA: • Germany o Leipzig / Halle Airport (EDDP) o Allgäu Memmingen Airport (EDJA) o Kassel Airport (EDVK) • Switzerland o Lugano Airport (LSZA) o Zurich Airport ( LSZH) o Lucerne-Beromunster Airport (LSZO) • United States o Patrick Space Force Base (KCOF) o Marine Corps Air Station Miramar (KNKX) The Game of the Year contains information on 545 previously missing airports in the USA. New Missions – Due to the popularity of the recently launched Discovery Flights, we’re adding six additional locations (Helsinki, Freiburg im Breisgau, Mekka, Monument Valley, Singapore and Mount Cook) to this popular series. New Tutorials – To further expand the onboarding experience, we’re adding 14 new tutorials introducing Simmers to Bush Flying (in an Icon A5) and IFR (in a Cessna 172). New Features – We’re also excited to introduce some features that have been in high demand from the community: an updated weather system, early access to DX12, and a playback system in development mode. New Photogrammetry Cities – As part of our ongoing collaboration with Bing Maps, we’re excited to add a number of new photogrammetry cities: Helsinki (Finland), Freiburg im Breisgau (Germany), Brighton, Derby, Eastbourne, Newcastle and Nottingham (UK). ) and Utrecht (Netherlands). Microsoft Flight Simulator Premium Deluxe Game of the Year Edition will be available as a free update for PC and Xbox Series X | S owners. For new users, the GOTY Edition is the perfect entry point into flight simulation as it offers an even richer experience and will be the item they buy as we move in the original.
