It will be there along with thousands of other airports, but it just won't be as detailed as the featured airports.

Man, I have sooooo many hours logged on various Microsoft flight Sims. My computer would never run this one though. Looks insane.

Too bad they didn't include Singapore's Changi (SIN/WSSS). It's the coolest airport I've ever been to.

I am very surprised that this is being released as early as it is but I fully expect that they are working on adding more airports and aircraft.

I bet it will, my RTX 2080 will run X-plane 11 at high settings. I guess depeneds on what processor you are currently using. Ryz 7 3700x here..

re: Microsoft Flight Sim Release Date Aug. 18
I'm running a rtx 2080 ryz 7 3700x and can run medium/lo-hi graphics on VR for xplane-11. sometimes I put settings on the higher-end-medium to have good FPS. Remember that VR runs two displays and almost doubles rendering load.

the new FSX didn't mention anything about VR I dont think. Should be interesting.

I have an i7-8700k with 16gb RAM which should be ideal. I’m a pleb since I only have a 1080p monitor but it should be able to run 4K.

Bump because this thing is getting close. I dug my old joystick out of the attic this weekend. I spend way too much time exploring in Google Earth. I have a feeling this game is going to be a major time suck for me. All the videos I've seen have been amazing. I run the recommended specs, so I'm not expecting what I'm seeing from other people, but I still expect to get some good exploring in.

I'm excited too, all of the YouTube videos aren't helping.

The game is now live. I had to change my PC region to Kiribati, but it got the game downloading so I can play after work today.

What are you using? Steam, MS Store, or the Xbox/Gamepass app? I used the Xbox app and it worked with no problem, at least as far as I know. It was at 30 gb downloaded when I left for work this morning.

Did you just change your timezone and not the PC's region maybe? Reddit is saying it's working for some and not for others.

Reviews are coming in...

It's crushing high-end PCs

In sleepy rural landscapes I can get frame rates approaching 60 at ultra settings with my RTX 2080 Ti, I7 9700K and 16GB RAM, but once the buildings enter the screen I’m often down below 20. In fact there are certain places in the world I simply can’t fly—New York is off limits

I hope you kicked off the download within the download since it is another 90gb after the download within the Xbox PC app.

re: Microsoft Flight Sim Release Date Aug. 18
I finally got it going. Flew to my house first, I guess bing data is a little behind, my house wasn't built yet. Went to the gulf coast, seen the casinos,and my daughter wanted to see the Eiffel Tower. Pretty damn cool so far. It recommended high settings for my 3700x & 2070 Super.
