Microsoft Flight Simulator’s Next Update Overhauls Japan
Almost two months after it was released, Microsoft Flight Simulator will receive its first substantial update next week. World Update 1 will be a free upgrade that focuses on Japan, using an improved digital elevation map of the entire country and high-resolution 3D photogrammetry that adds six Japanese cities to the game: Sendai, Takamatsu, Tokushima, Tokyo, Utsunomiya, and Yokohama.
There will also be six new airports to visit, such as the Hachijojima, Kerama, Kushiro, Nagasaki, Shimojishima, and Suwanosejima complexes. Three new Landing Challenges completes the free package, which will be available for download on Xbox Game Pass for PC, Windows 10, and Steam on September 29. You can check out a trailer and some screenshots below.
Once the free content has been released, the next update will provide more fine-tuning for aircraft. This will also be free but the content update following after this will be paid DLC.
