New official Microsoft Flight Simulator trailer showcases some planes and airports

Microsoft has released a new official trailer for Microsoft Flight Simulator. This new in-game trailer showcases some of the planes that players can pilot. Additionally, it shows off some of the airports that will be available in it.

Microsoft Flight Simulator will have highly detailed aircrafts, from light planes to commercial jets. Players will also be able to explore a dynamic living world in amazing detail with over 37 thousand airports, 2 million cities, and live weather.

Microsoft has already revealed the official PC system requirements for Microsoft Flight Simulator. PC gamers will at least need an AMD Ryzen 3 1200 or an Intel i5 4460 CPU. Moreover, they’ll need at least 8GB of RAM, 150GB of free hard-disk space and a 5Mbps Internet Connection. Microsoft has also listed the AMD Radeon RX 570 and the NVIDIA GeForce GTX770 as the minimum required graphics cards.

As we’ve reported, Microsoft Flight Simulator Closed Beta runs with 30-40fps in 4K/Ultra on NVIDIA RTX2080Ti. Thus, it will be interesting to see whether the final version will provide additional optimization and performance improvements over it.

Microsoft Flight Simulator releases on August 18th.

Enjoy and stay tuned for more!
