Before trying to showcase some of the most famous European cities in a future video, we dared to take a small jet plane to cross a small part of the Mediterranean sea and reach Italy. We took off in the south of Corsica, flew over Italy for a while until we reached the eastern seaboard and then went back to the west to arrive in Rome, just ion time for the sunset.

The Flight Simulator series has always benefited from the work of third party developers willing to update certain areas because they didn't have the proper amount of details. It is obviously no different for Microsoft Flight Simulator and the first interesting thing which popped out in the in-game shop comes from Orbx. For €7.99/$7.99, you can get a complete overhaul of London which adds quite de goog number of buildings and monuments, such as Buckingham Palace or Westminster Abbey to name but two. The result is very impressive, as shown in our images and videos. By the way, we must apologize for the rough landing at the end of the second video, we're new to this.

As promised, we're back with some Microsoft Flight Simulator beauty for a first long visit of France, starting with Nantes and finishing in Paris. Despite the new drivers released by NVIDIA, our RTX 2080 Ti and our i9 9900K struggled to maintain a framerate above 30 fps in 4K with ultra settings which, as most simers will confirm, is not an issue to enjoy the game. In the first part of our little stroll above Nantes and the French countryside, we even tried to push some of the graphics options that could beyond the ultra preset, just to see. This new episode of the Flight Simulator series, which started back in 1982, is undeniably impressive from a visual standpoint, with never before seeen details on the ground, mind-blowing weather effects and hyper realistic lighting. We can't wait to see more, we can't wait to show you more, but until then buckle up and get ready for a first glimpse of France!
Update 2: One last video in France added, next we'll be touring around Europe a bit.

We finally have some Microsoft Flight Simulator to show you in extra super high quality since Microsoft sent us an early copy of the game at the end of last week. I only got home yesterday so I haven't really had time to become a pilot just yet and since I'm a real newbie in the franchise, well, I did what I could to stay up in the air. Pretty much like everyone, the first thing I did was to go home, back to where I grew up in Brittany, in the west of France. Obviously, the scenery is not as detailed as in the most famous places like NYC, but it remains an amazing feat nonetheless as I did recognize my hometown (yeah!). The second part of August is going to be filled with videos of Flight Simulator on the website so expect to see as many different countries as possible in the weeks to come. If you have places you'd like to see, let us know! As the first true next gen title to be released, we intend to pay tribute to Asobo's achievement in the best possible way so hopefully, you'll enjoy our coverage.

Among the rare titles to be shown in real time during the Xbox conference yesterday, Microsoft Flight Simulator undoubtedly impressed us. That being said, it won't be a game for everyone. Still, it's nice to see the iconic franchise is back, especially with such incredible visuals. Sadly, all we have to share for now is the YouTube version of last night's trailer.

What's up?
  • MrWhite

    MrWhite At least for most gamers. Similar to when everything went to pci-e (10 Hours ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite I think we could be seeing a dramatic shift in PC hardware where it'll be essential to own both an SSD and a next gen card with the api's to use them. That also would probably require new motherboards (10 Hours ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite If a game is built from the ground up to take advantage of that, though... (10 Hours ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite I think it'll be down to next gen engines making use of it where applicable. So, basically, if a game allows it, hardware permitting, it'll be used. (10 Hours ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite @toelessfoot: Yeah, that's the thing, isn't it? PC's are a bit too much of an open platform hardware wise for it to be standard implementation. (10 Hours ago)

  • toelessfoot

    toelessfoot @MrWhite: How long until we see that kind of thing in PCs do you think? I guess consoles are more future proof than a current PC in that regard. (10 Hours ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite new api's that talk to gpu and ssd's are the exciting thing there. That'll be present in both console and PC, eventually. (12 Hours ago)
