'Flight Simulator: GOTY Edition' adds new aircraft and locations on
November 18th | Engadget
Microsoft is spicing up Flight Simulator with an expanded re-release,
although this one may be more ambitious than some. It's releasing Flight
Simulator: Game of the Year Edition on November 18th with both a heaping
of new content as well as some meaningful feature upgrades. To start,
there are five new stand-out aircraft, including the F/A-18 Super Hornet
— you won't have to wait until the Top Gun expansion to buzz the tower
in a fighter jet. You'll also get to fly the VoloCity air taxi, PC-6
Porter short-takeoff aircraft, the bush flying-oriented NX Cub and the
single-seat Aviat Pitts Special S1S.
The GOTY upgrade adds eight airports, including Marine Corps Air Station
Miramar and Patrick Space Force Base. Eight cities will get
photogrammetry detail upgrades, such as Helsinki, Nottinghm and Utrecht.
There are accordingly new tutorials (such as bush flying and IFR) and
The update adds useful features, too. You'll have early access to
DirectX 12 features, an improved weather system and a developer mode
replay system, among other improvements.
