As we wait for Microsoft Flight Simulator to bring us helicopters, some developers are already thinking ahead and getting their scenery packs ready for the rotor-wings to be supported by the sim.
In today’s update, Microsoft has added a few dates to their wishlist where helicopters have been present since the start. But they are even further away than we thought they would be.
Helicopters support will be added free of charge, but Microsoft mentions a paid DLC that may be bringing several helicopters and other type of content for the rotorheads.
The sim offers a terrific base and ORBX is now doing something that was pretty obvious it could happen: they are filling the gaps.
Among other pieces of information that came out, there are a few that I thought are especially mentioning. In particular helicopters, obviously, and something that seems to not be getting enough attention: updates.
Microsoft Flight Simulator is almost out and, while most of the community is thrilled about it, some voices still raise against it. And I just don’t get it. Or perhaps they don’t get it.
The new version of Microsoft Flight Simulator will be released this Summer.
We already know Microsoft is planning on adding helicopters to the new Microsoft Flight Simulator but it's absolutely fantastic to see the community asking for it as well.
In order to provide a much realistic and high-quality world, Microsoft will start streaming data to our computers. This has been confusing some simmers.
Earlier this month, Microsoft did a Global Preview Event for media and flight simulation influencers where we could get our hands on a build.
