Flight Simulator X - INFORMATION

GENERAL INFORMATION
Microsoft® Flight Simulator X is the culmination of nearly 25 years of the landmark Flight Simulator franchise—the most significant addition to date. Flight Simulator X immerses you in a beautifully rich and realistic world with dozens of aircraft and interactive Missions for a completely new and innovative gaming experience. Free Flight lets you fly anywhere in the world, from your hometown airport to the most exotic places you've ever dreamed of. Gamers and simmers of all ages and skill levels feel firsthand what it's like to be an aviator traveling the globe solo or online with others.

NEW FEATURES
Many of the new features in Flight Simulator X are based on requests from the loyal community who have provided creative input into the decision process. Therefore, Microsoft is excited to bring its fans the most revolutionary addition to the Flight Simulator franchise yet. Full advantage is taken of Windows Vista and the latest Windows gaming hardware to create a beautifully rich and immersive 3D world for aviation fans, young and old, to explore and experience. The new enhancements extend beyond the look and feel of the planet—the advances in graphics will benefit the aircraft as well, and fans will be amazed at the new level of detail in the models and the realistic effects like sun glint off the glass and chrome, reflective paint, and even shaded rivets on the fuselage. For the more gameplay minded, a new mission-based element was added to give fans a more objective driven experience with a sense of progression and skill development. The multiplayer technology was also improved to allow the community to connect in new ways.

AIRCRAFT
Microsoft offers a range of aircraft to support a wide variety of flying experiences and many of the aircraft will be tied to specific mission-based experiences.
