This is Microsoft Flight Simulator, the game with the most realistic recreation of the Earth

Technology News

Microsoft Flight Simulator , the new video game from Xbox Game Studios , is now available for computers . This title developed by Asobo Studio , as the name suggests, is an extremely complete, realistic and immense aviation simulator . You can take off from virtually any airport, with an extensive list of aircraft, to travel anywhere.

But this flying is not an easy task . The new Microsoft Flight Simulator tries to imitate reality in all its aspects and, as in real life, before embarking on a commercial transoceanic flight it is advisable to go through the school and do some tutorials .

In their quest for realism, the developers have recreated almost every airport in the world and implemented a photorealistic graphics system based on satellite images . The best way to play is connected to the Internet because the game downloads weather information, air traffic and landscape information in real time .

Flight Simulator allows you to recreate any flight that can be done in real life. It is possible to travel to Barcelona airport , for example, check the expected departures and arrivals in real time and make exactly the same route by copying the flight plan, the route and the plane model.

This new simulator harnesses the famous power of the cloud to recreate the world. The graphics engine is based on the information from Bing maps and captures reality through photogrammetry and 3D modeling. The level of graphic fidelity is impressive and, if you fly low, it is possible to recognize buildings such as your own home , the place where you work or emblematic monuments.

Free mode is perhaps the most interesting, but Microsoft Flight Simulator also offers the ability to overcome challenges that change periodically or to take paths determined by the developers.

Most players will have a difficult start in Flight Simulator if they are not used to this type of game or flying airplanes. It is a slow title and the trips can last quite a few hours depending on the distance. At all times, the player must be aware of the electronic systems of the plane, the levers, buttons and indicators. Meanwhile, from the control towers, the pilots are informed about the flight plan and air traffic .

To play you can use typical control systems such as the keyboard and mouse or a controller , but the developers recommend the use of joysticks or steering wheels that replicate the controls of an airplane. There are dozens of devices compatible with Flight Simulator and the player can customize all the controls to get the ideal experience.
