Yesterday, we informed you about the launch of the closed beta phase for Microsoft Flight Simulator. And today, Microsoft revealed that the game will be also coming to Steam. Not only that, but Microsoft Flight Simulator will support TrackIR at launch day.
TrackIR is the premier head tracking solution delivering full six degree of freedom (6DOF) camera control. TrackIR will allow simmers to enjoy a low latency mouse free look around with Microsoft Flight Simulator in full 4K/HDR. Furthermore, it will also allow easy interaction with a suite of hardware peripherals.
Microsoft has also announced that the game will receive VR support via a post-launch update. This is something that a lot of simmers have been asking for, so this is definitely great news. According to the team, the VR update will be available for free to all Microsoft Flight Simulator gamers. It will also support the HP Reverb G2 which will be available later this Fall.
Lastly, you can find below two videos from the game’s Closed Beta phase.
