Microsoft’s Flight Simulator is loved by many in the gaming industry and has amazing mechanisms, and the developer has released many updates and features for the game.

But it seems the rate of new content and updates is only picking up as during Microsoft’s pre-Gamescom Xbox showcase, Microsoft revealed a wide range of upcoming content, including World Update 6, which focuses on Germany, Austria, and Switzerland, the new “Local Legends” series that recreates various regionally-famous aircraft, the Reno Air Races, and much more.

And the promised Top Gun DLC is still coming however, due to the movie embargoes Microsoft is yet to announce many details about the game. Here’s a look at the Germany, Austria, and Switzerland update.

Our latest World Update celebrates the region of Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. New aerial imagery, high-resolution elevation maps, and several brand-new 3D cities in Germany, Basel in Switzerland, Graz, and Vienna in Austria are drastically enhancing the visuals of these three countries and the beautiful mountain ranges of the Alps. The team has also hand-crafted about 100 famous locations (points of interest, or POIs) and several airports like Lübeck, Stuttgart, Klagenfurt, and St. Gallen. The update also includes discovery flights, landing challenges and bush trips that take simmers across this beautiful region of our planet.
