On August 24, local time, Microsoft released information on future updates of the flight simulator “Microsoft Flight Simulator” on “gamescom 2021 Xbox Stream”. It was revealed that air racing will be implemented as a new element.
Air racing is scheduled to be implemented in the fall of 2021. It supports multiplayer, and you can compete with your friends for flying skills.
Air racing to be implemented in “Microsoft Flight Simulator”
Air Racing will implement “Reno Air Racing: STIHL National Championship AirRaces” as it is by partnering with the Reno Air Racing Association. This race is an air race held every September in Reno, northwestern Nevada, USA.
The “World Update VI”, which was originally scheduled to be delivered on August 24, is scheduled to be delivered on September 7. In this update, the landscapes of Germany, Austria and Switzerland, and over 100 landmarks are precisely reproduced. In addition to refining the four airports of Lübeck, Stuttgart, Klagenfurt and St. Gallen, we will also make corrections such as stabilizing operations.
In addition, Microsoft Flight Simulator announces an initiative called Local Legends to store historically valuable aircraft as digital data. As the first step, the German transport aircraft “Junkers JU-52” and the eVTOL air taxi “VoloCity” are scheduled to be released.
