Flight Simulator X is the culmination of nearly 25 years of the landmark
Flight Simulator franchise and its most significant addition to date. The 10th
addition to the highly successful “Flight Simulator” franchise, Flight
Simulator X will immerse players in a beautifully rich and realistic world,
offering a completely new and innovative gaming experience with dozens of new
aircraft to choose from, including the AirCreation 582SL Ultralight and Maule
M7-260C Orion with wheels and skis. Gamers of all ages, types and skill levels
will experience firsthand what it is like to be an aviator traveling the globe
either alone or online with others.
Immersive world. Flight Simulator X offers players a rich
and innovative gaming experience with new technological advancements,
incredible graphics and added realism including weather, time of day and
seasons. Pilots can watch moving cars and detailed buildings in cities
below; traffic on highways; indigenous houses, farmland and livestock; and
wildlife in its natural habitats.
Mission-based gameplay. With the addition of new
mission-based gameplay, players will have a specific purpose as their world
comes alive for the first time with automobile traffic, moving boats and
ships, and animal life. With more than 50 new missions to choose from,
aviators can build their skill levels and engage in even more stimulating
gameplay than before. Players can choose to compete in the Red Bull Air Race
or bring relief materiel to the Congo, keeping track of their progress on
New aircraft. Flight Simulator X will enable pilots to
fly the aircraft of their dreams, from the DeHavilland DHC-2 Beaver
floatplane and Grumman G-21A Goose to the AirCreation 582SL Ultralight and
Maule M7-260C Orion with wheels and skis. Players will be amazed at the
details — such as shaded rivets, reflective paint, and glint from glass
and chrome — as they view the world from 100 feet to 1 million feet.
Connected world. Through increased online gameplay
capabilities, Flight Simulator X offers players a connected world where they
can choose whom they want to be, from air-traffic controller to pilot or
co-pilot, as they interact with other aviators from around the globe by
chatting in real time via headset and keyboard.
Interactive airports. More than 24,000 airports feature
AI-controlled jetways, fuel trucks and moving baggage carts, allowing
players to explore their hometown or venture to a favorite far-off city.
