With an amazing amount of graphical detail and real-world map data, Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 is closer than ever to recreating the experience of flight. Digital pilot TheNinjaCowboy shared this video footage of some of their favorite locations from the game, looking out from the pilot’s window and above their single-engine plane.
THE BEST Simulators
New Zealand tech startup Eight360 has created a motion simulator that looks like something out of Jurassic World or Oblivion. The sphere can rotate untethered in any direction, meaning its occupant can tumble, roll, and spin. Its movements are synced with a VR headset, so motion sickness isn’t as likely as stationary VR.
Completely revamped from top to bottom, Microsoft Flight Simulator aims to be the most realistic aviation sim ever. The game includes data from over 2 million cities around the globe, rendered in incredible detail, with 4K and HDR support, along with real-time atmospheric and weather conditions. Coming to Windows 10, 8.18.20.
This physics-based moving sim game asks players to move furniture around the town of Packmore, as you live your life as a newly-certified Furniture Arrangement & Relocation Technician. It’s packed with hilarious and tricky levels, and looks even more fun in co-op mode. Drops 4/28/2020 on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Switch.
Whenever we fly, we just assume that the runway is long enough for our airplane to safely take off and land. But what would happen if you tried to use the world’s shortest airstrip with the world’s largest commercial jets? Aviation hobbyist Swiss001 decided to try just that using a flight simulator.
No, you’re not looking at actual 4K aerial footage here – this is in-engine imagery from the next-generation version of Microsoft’s famed Flight Simulator. The game uses satellite data, along with Azure AI tech to power its incredibly realistic flying. Coming to Xbox in 2020.
The latest game from Deadly Premonition creator SWERY, and developer Yukio Futatsugi of Phantom Dust fame looks like a trip. It’s a daily life sim RPG in which you play a journalist who must pay off a massive debt, and along the way uncover the secrets of a small UK town.
We’re dying to take a ride on this platform, which can be used to simulate a wide variety of movements by tugging at its eight steel cables, taking its carbon fiber frame and rider on trips in six different directions. We can only imagine how cool this is with the VR headset on.
