Microsoft Flight Simulator: UK Update On The Way!

Microsoft Flight Simulator is getting an update centred around the UK, Developer Asobo has confirmed. This comes not-long after Microsoft Flight Simulator got a World Updated focused on the USA.

Due in January, Microsoft Flight Simulator is getting a UK-based World Update. The development team, Asobo, plan to use a detailed set of aerial images and “awesome new data” to bring a new level of detail and accuracy to the location.

This update is scheduled to bring between 50 and 60 new Points of Interest to the UK in-game. Northern Island should be included, although Asobo have said that these portions of the update might not be ready in time for their scheduled release window.

Microsoft Flight Simulator UK Update Should Follow Same Line As USA Update

If you’re interested in the full slate of improvements that should be coming the Microsoft Flight Simulator in the UK Update, you can look to the previously-released USA Update for information.

In their previous update, Asobo didn’t just add new landmarks and Points of Interest to the location… They enhanced the exisiting landmarks and updated a LOT of airports. You figure they’re a big deal in a Flight Simualtor, right?

An example of this is Dallas Fort Worth, a major airport with the code KDFW, being made now-available in Microsoft Flight Simulator.

The White House, Washington’s Capitol Building, and Mount Rushmore all now feature in pretty-decent detail considering.

From the UK Update, expect to see things like Buckingham Palace, Stonehenge, the Northern Angel, and more to be added to the game’s developing landscape.

Personally, I would like to see Corfe Castle added but I’m not holding out too much hope.
