Microsoft Flight Simulator’s Newest Update to Celebrate 1-Year Anniv is Delayed
Microsoft Flight Simulator will have a series of special events as part of the game’s first year anniversary. Unfortunately, it would seem that its virtual aviators will have to wait a little bit longer for the opportunity to participate at these unspecified events.
Microsoft Flight Simulator actually celebrated its first anniversary on August 18th, but Asobo Studio explained that the celebration cannot be completely started since they are too preoccupied with the game’s next big update—which they have scheduled for a September 7th launch. Since the game is being developed to feature “a ton of content,” the studio simply wants “to make sure that it will be great.”
“We are very excited about this update as it features many enhancements to the region, including new aerials and elevation maps, new photogrammetry cities, four hand-crafted airports, nearly 100 POIs and new discovery flights, landing challenges, and bush trips,” read a statement in the studio’s recently released Microsoft Flight Simulator development update.
“It is the one year anniversary of Microsoft Flight Simulator launching on PC!” the studio wrote on social media. “The team is hard at work on the next update, but we will be celebrating properly with multiple events from September 6 to 10.”
This much-awaited update, dubbed the Microsoft Flight Simulator World Update 6, has been reported to focus on Austria, Germany, and Switzerland. Fans of the game are already well aware that St. Gallen-Altenrhein Airport (LSZR), Lubeck Airport (EDHL), and Klagenfurt Airport (LOWK) are three of the four airports that will be featured. Moreover, Vienna is also reportedly going to be one fo the new photogrammetry cities. In a recent Q&A, fans were also given previews of Castle Katz, Holstentor, and other points of interest. In addition to new content, Microsoft Flight Simulator World Update 6 will also be featuring a multitude of improvements and bug fixes.
