Microsoft has released a new version of Flight Simulator, a video game in which players take the role of a pilot and fly around the world. The video game is the tech company’s oldest franchise and was first launched in 1982. After a 14-year hiatus, it was recently relaunched with new features like live weather and a huge world map. This latest version also includes a new day and night engine option, which allows users to fly at any time of the day. Users' wanderlust can also be satisfied, as the game enables them to fly around different parts of the world. Flight Simulator’s latest version came out in August for both Windows and Xbox. The game’s live weather feature creates new challenges like navigating through stormy skies, and its lifelike scenery makes flights engaging. This version also features 37,000 airports, over a billion buildings, and two trillion trees. Just like its old version, the new Flight Simulator comes in different editions—standard, deluxe, and premium deluxe. The standard edition is priced at $59.99. The deluxe edition for $30 more features Chicago O'hare International Airport, while the premium deluxe edition for an additional $60 includes San Francisco International Airport and London's Heathrow Airport. Flight Simulator head Jorg Neumann said that the recent lockdowns posed a lot of limitations. However, thanks to Flight Simulator, he had the opportunity to travel to Texas, Nepal, and some parts of Africa without ever leaving his home.
