New MS Flight Simulator (2020)
 


A very brief report . . .

Sabadin Jun 9, 2019 08:07 PM

And the official site, which right now is just the teaser and registering for email updates.

Very nice! I enjoyed playing all the Microsoft Flight Simulator Series.

I remember being 8 years old and my mom got me Flight Simulator 3.0 for my birthday. I was thinking "what the **** is this? I wanted Microprose Gunship! not Microsoft Flight Simulator."

Played it, and got hooked ever since.

Progression Jun 9, 2019 11:07 PM

Give it a VR option, pleaaaaaaaase.:drool:

OverclockN' Jun 9, 2019 11:13 PM

That looks absolutely phenomenal. If that supports VR...oh man. :drool:

Exposed Jun 10, 2019 12:11 AM

So....why is this in the Off topic lounge and not PC gaming?

Vanz_007 Jun 10, 2019 12:37 AM

damn, total hard drive space required must be massive...

Now give me that world GTA style... :drool: ... with VR... :drool: :drool:

nutcrackr Jun 10, 2019 01:12 AM

Damn that looks hot. Is this going to be a regular buy and play game or is it buy and pay for 1000s of different DLC packs?

A buy and play flight sim would mean a casual game not a sim.

Thr0tt Jun 10, 2019 04:14 AM

It will be a subscription model after paying for the base game my bet £££

Mangler Jun 10, 2019 10:11 AM

Y'all could just gamepass it.

Flight Simulator on XBox?
Arcade Garbage Expected. Would like to be proven wrong, but expectations set somewhere between Garbage Dump and earths mantle

UFO Jun 10, 2019 10:37 AM

Visuals looks great but what's the plot?

Destroy Jun 10, 2019 11:11 AM

I hope MS has their sh*t together this time. Do not want flop like FLIGHT.

If they didn't listen to the flight sim'er crowd, this game will fail harder than Derek Smart on Cialis piloting Battlecruiser 3000AD.

xCLAVEx Jun 10, 2019 11:24 AM

I didn't see anything stating it was coming to PC. Is this Xbox only?

EDIT: I think I read elsewhere that it is PC. I REALLY hope MS doesn't **** this up.

It's on PC, the Xbox logo is because it will also be available through the Xbox Game Pass on PC as well. And based on some FSX 3rd party devs having been talking about secret projects wrapping up recently there's a good chance they've already got access to the engine and/ or have contributed to the base product. I think it's safe to move expectations up a few pegs but still keep them tempered.

John C Flett Jun 10, 2019 03:21 PM

Looks pretty but I'll hold off until we know more about content and business model.


FSX still has enough content for me despite it's age. Add XP11, DCSW and IL2 and I'm not sure how much room I have for another flight sim, especially given how fast Flight was abandoned by MS.

Athena Jun 10, 2019 03:52 PM

Powered by Xbox and Azure, so they will stream it from the Xbox cloud. Wondering what kind of connection will be needed or will they buffer regions to make sure the performance is good in 4k.

Mangler Jun 10, 2019 04:21 PM

Doesn't that just mean that they're using azure servers for the online portion just like they do for all other xbox titles that requires dedicated servers?

Exposed Jun 10, 2019 04:27 PM

I'm already looking forward to ground vehicle mods and those awesome days of "drive anywhere, fly anywhere" scenarios I used to do with FSX and prior, especially since all the main roads were dead on accurate.



SubCog Jun 10, 2019 04:33 PM

Wow, that's a great idea. Also, add in some Kerbal space program stuff!

Napoleonic Aug 17, 2019 02:42 AM



looks good but I'm very cautious about this, there can be some nasty surprise at the end, from extremely limited scope, always online, dlc and microtransaction galore, to the nonexistence of modding, lack of 3rd party supports and the likes.

Lurk Aug 17, 2019 07:28 AM

MS flight sims have a nasty tradition of promising the world and then sistematically cutting down most mouth-watering features on release.
Will wait.

Well at least I can gear up mentally for more revealing game play videos before I buy.

John C Flett Aug 18, 2019 01:18 AM

Does it make sense that I have high hopes but low expectations?


MS have a bad habit of walking away from PC gaming and a title like this really needs a long term commitment.


I find the lack of detail concerning; a few seconds of video showing a few very specific locations and a few static shots don't really convince.


I'd need to see a lot more info though I'd be willing to take a risk if they have a low early access price.

andino Aug 18, 2019 02:23 AM

I really think that Steam picking up FSX and running with it spurred this on. That community is doing very well and is still strong.

I hope that this is a decent release. I hope there is a VR option for it as well.

Their roadmap looks a lot like FS2024. Can't get excited until actual gameplay is shown.

Wonder if it will have the 737 Max :bleh:

Wonder if it will simulate how the anti-stall feature works :bleh:

xCLAVEx Aug 21, 2019 04:00 PM

Man I am looking forward to this game more than most others. If they do it right this could be epic...

They could use it for crash scenarios. :bleh:
