Microsoft has released a TGS 2020 gameplay trailer for Microsoft Flight Simulator. This trailer showcases the new Japanese areas that will be overhauled via a free update.
Going into more details, the Japan world update features an upgraded digital elevation map across the entire country, high-resolution 3D photogrammetry for six prominent Japanese cities. These cities are Sendai, Takamatsu, Tokushima, Tokyo, Utsunomiya and Yokohama. Furthermore, it will pack six handcrafted local airports (Hachijojima, Kerama, Kushiro, Nagasaki, Shimojishima, and Suwanosejima). Players will also be able to try their hand at executing a trio of exciting new Landing Challenges set at Japanese airports.
This new world update for Microsoft Flight Simulator will release on September 29th. Naturally, the update will be available for free to all owners of the game.
Lastly, Microsoft has not revealed any additional details about the game’s DX12 API. However, Asobo has recently released a new patch that brought noticeable CPU improvements.
