Microsoft Flight Simulator: Australia gets a makeover in the new update

Microsoft Flight Simulator

The wait for the return of Microsoft Flight Simulator was largely fulfilled by how the flight simulator presented itself on the market. Almost two years have passed since the launch of the title, and today the guys at Asobo Studio are still expanding and improving a simulation experience that is already of the highest level. Just in these hours a new video has been published on the net that shows the new World Update 7 dedicated to Australia in action.

As we can see in the video lasting about three minutes, Microsoft Flight Simulator further improves a series of technical and graphic features with the new seventh World Update. With this update, it will now be even more enthralling to be able to fly over the Great Barrier Reef, visit the vast regions of Western Australia and admire the natural beauty of Mount Wellington in flight.

As the development team states: l 'Australia is a country known for being as diverse as it is magnificent. This great land features a list of stunning natural formations and modern man-made wonders. Thanks to the new World Update 7, Microsoft Flight Simulator is now enriched with exceptional graphical improvements, new discovery flights, landing challenges and many trips that show this region in all its beauty.

There are eleven Australian cities to which photogrammetry has been added, including: Adelaide, Perth, Hobart, Cairns, Darwin, Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Townsville, Bunbury and Mackay.

The newest version of Microsoft Flight Simulator has released its World Update VII, adding Australia to the game. The new update will allow players to “soar over the renowned Great Barrier Reef, visit the vast regions of Western Australia, and marvel at the natural beauty of Mount Wellington. From the dusty red outback to shimmering coastlines and sugar-white sand beaches, explore the country’s most spectacular sights.”

Microsoft Flight Simulator has a long history with the original version launching almost 40 years ago in 1982. The current version of the game was released in 2020 for PC and last year for the Xbox Series X/S.
