Today third-party developers had a few reveals to make about Microsoft Flight Simulator add-ons, including both aircraft and scenery.
We start with Aerosoft, which showcased a few new screenshots of the upcoming Airbus A330. These show the Cathay Pacific and Lufthansa liveries, on top of the opening doors.
Next, we get another screenshot from MK Studios of Philadelphia International Airport (KPHL) in Pennsylvania, United States. If I interpreted the countdown correctly, it should release tomorrow (or today, if you're in Europe).
Update: The airport has been released and it's available on Orbx Direct for $18.46. Below you can find a list of official features and a gallery of screenshots:
- High-fidelity rendition of Philadelphia Airport built from the ground up
- Optimized yet crisp texturing throughout all buildings and structures
- Main terminal interiors modeled
- Custom GSE vehicles
- Landside buildings and significant POIs near the airport
- Compatible with most aircraft AI plug-ins
- Optimized to MSFS performance guidelines for PC and Xbox
Last, but not least, Aerosoft and its partner developer FlightSim Studio revealed a new small airport in Germany, Bad Endorf/Jolling Airport (EDPC). This is a small general aviation airfield located in Bavaria, and you can see what it looks like below.
Microsoft Flight Simulator is currently available for PC, Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox Cloud Gaming, including Game Pass.
