    It will be published at the and of the year. Probably the only game I am interested in.
    But then it is also the reveal of the next Xbox and next Playstation.
    The more you live, less you die. More you play, more you die. Isn't it great.

    Re: Microsoft Flight Simulator boasts "all the airports in the world"

    Been following the updates from Asobo Studio for a few months now. I agree it's shaping up to be one hell of a game (or sim, I should say). The sheer scope of it all is mightily impressive.

    I don't think it's shipping with VR support from day one - that's due later down the line.

    Re: Microsoft Flight Simulator boasts "all the airports in the world"

    Interested to know how deeply simulated the non-flying stuff is. Whole city traffic flows, trains & buses arriving and departing on their real-life schedules etc? Sim-citizens going about their day all over the world ;-)

    Flight Simulator was featured in the Xbox games-reel in 2019 - so may well be coming to the next-gen Xbox X-Series... also likely to be included in the Gamespass subscription model, like all other first-party Microsoft games for Xbox and PC.

    Should be some happy times (and virtual airmiles) ahead :-D

    It doesn't have to, wmr can work as a 3d display, It's good because it's cheap compared to getting a proper VR headset. I nearly bought one for GTA 5 First person XD

    Ok, so you can use it just have the 3D view, without the head/motion tracking?

    Assuming FS2020 has support for it, I wonder if it'd be possible to combine TrackIR with WMR, so you get the 3D view and some degree of head tracking when you pan your head around?

    I hope it's got that airport on the side of a mountain that was in a Bond film then.

    I keep hearing that, yet only see them for the same sort of money as a Rift.
