Earlier this year, Asobo Studio announced that it would be bringing VR headset support to Microsoft Flight Simulator. Beta testing began back in October and the developers have had a quick turnaround, with the game’s big VR update now officially rolling out to all owners of the game today.
We might be living under travel restrictions here in the UK, but we can still take a virtual trip around the world. Microsoft Flight Simulator is getting its VR update today, with support for Oculus headsets, the Valve Index, HTC VIVE and Windows 10 Mixed Reality headsets.
Virtual Reality support isn’t the only thing coming in today’s Flight Simulator update. The game is also getting updated for the Winter season, with realistic weather conditions, such as snow and ice. Thanks to the game’s real-time weather simulation technology, this is all down in real-time, so snow and ice coverage will be true to life, based on real-world coverage across the entire planet.
This all comes ahead of the game’s next major expansion, which will see more realistic locations added to the UK part of the map in early 2021.
