Microsoft Flight Simulator’s newest update takes players to Canada

Ever since Microsoft Flight Simulator first launched back in 2020, the game has seen a string of continuous updates with the team at Asobo Studio going over the game with multiple coats of gloss. After updating regions such as the UK, Europe, Australia and more, Microsoft Flight Simulator has now gotten its 11th world update: Canada.

Making the announcement on the Xbox blog, Jorg Neumann, the Head of Microsoft Flight Simulator said “Canada is filled with a plethora of sights to explore from the air: magnificent urban architecture, wave-battered northern coastlines, and vast sweeps of tundra, glaciers and towering peaks. Microsoft Flight Simulator’s World Update XI invites simmers to explore this massive, diverse country, presented in the highest resolution and fidelity yet!”

As with previous world updates, the devs have gone in with a fine-toothed comb, building many of the country’s most iconic landmarks and places – enhancing 12 different regions with 87 handcrafted points of interest. The full list of improvements added with World Update XI is as follows:

  • 5 handcrafted five airports including:
    • British Columbia’s Castlegar / West Kootenay Regional Airport (CYCG)
    • Victoria International Airport
    • Vancouver Island
  • 9 exciting missions:
  • Three bush trips (Vancouver Island, Newfoundland, and the Canadian Rockies)
  • Three landing challenges (Castlegar, Barkerville, and Calgary)
  • Three discovery flights (Vancouver, Montreal, and Toronto).

Like with previous World Updates, all players will benefit from this free update, continuing to make Microsoft Flight Simulator not only one of the most impressive flight sims, but one of the most impressive models of the Earth which we can freely explore. Hopefully the team continues to keep up the good work.
