The new generation of consoles is conspicuous by its absence. While many users refresh the web page of the store on duty to see if units have been replaced, both PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X / S are gradually increasing their catalogs with new experiences.
In the case of Microsoft systems, it is expected that the big launches will arrive from 2022 , and that, in addition, they will do so at a reduced price for Game Pass users, the online gaming platform that has become the pretty girl of the signature. Precisely, this site has been hosting for a few days one of the most anticipated works of the (still) pandemic 2021: ‘ Microsoft Flight Simulator ‘.
The videogame, which is a flight simulator , it was launched about a year ago on the computer. However, it was not until this summer that technology has seen fit to make it available to desktop console users. Although, yes, it is only available to those who have a new generation system. And, for the moment, the title has not received a version for Xbox One , so users who do not have the new console or a competent computer will not be able to enjoy it.
Microsoft Flight Simulator
The title, in effect, allows the user to fly -literally- around the entire world and to do so in an incredibly realistic way. Both in the control and in the graphic. The computer version also makes it possible to make the experience compatible with Virtual Reality; something that is not possible on the console, since Xbox Series X, like the rest of the desktops developed by Microsoft to date, is not compatible with this technology.
Even with everything, the version for the new systems continues to be perfectly achieved. It delivers what it promises, which is to offer a flight experience close to reality and already, incidentally , amaze the player with the power offered by the brand -new next-generation console .
Fly where you want
For those who do not have much experience with simulation titles of this type, know that you will not find many problems in this case. The proposal is not demanding once the basic controls are learned. The title also has tutorials – highly recommended for newbies – that help to soak up what is necessary to get the most out of the proposal. And this, as we say, consists of flying. Anywhere in the world that the user wants .
The enormous realism offered by the title, added to the restrictions imposed by Covid 19 and the user’s curiosity to explore any unknown corner, help make the proposal interesting from the beginning. In this way, you can turn on the machine, select a plane, and head to the city of Cairo, with the pyramids of Giza and the sphinx perfectly recreated. Equally, you can bet not to go so far from home and fly over the Black Forest in Germany, or decide on a more exotic destination and head to Madagascar. Everything is possible; even see animals.
Beyond that, as we said, the title does not have great difficulty. Perhaps the main challenge is the landing and the game modes in which we must fly from A to B with the conditions against us. The title is also capable of recreating the real time that it does in the place where we are driving at the moment in which we put ourselves at the controls of the machine.
Taking all these details into account, and even recognizing that the experience is relaxing and (very) attractive to the eye, it is easy for a user who does not feel a great interest in this type of title to end up bored after a handful of hours. . Be that as it may, Xbox policies allow that it is not necessary for the player to make a payment to play, specifically, this title. As we said, Microsoft is interested in maximizing its Game Pass platform, so from launch day it can be enjoyed through this space without additional costs.
