The Microsoft Flight Simulator 40th Anniversary Edition has been released. It added much more to the flight simulator than just new content. This major update has improved the game’s performance in several ways, making better use of your PC’s hardware.
With changes to how DirectX 12 is implemented, the game should use less VRAM to run. The developers also fixed some graphics glitches that occurred when you switched to cockpit view. With the Microsoft Flight Simulator 40th Anniversary Edition, AMD FSR 2 technology was also made available, making images look better. The game now has official support for DLSS 3, which will also make it run faster on computers with a new RTX 40 series graphics card.
This is a major update to the game as it allows you to use props made specifically for flight sims. Products such as Turtlebeach’s VelocityOne Flight Stick, Honeycomb’s Alpha Flight Controls, Honeycomb’s Charlie Pedals, and Thrustmaster’s TCA Sidestick X are now certified for use with Flight Simulator. Changes were also made to the game’s virtual reality system. The navigation interface in VR mode has been changed in a number of ways, including fixing toolbars and panels that could display incorrectly.
Microsoft Flight Simulator 40th Anniversary Edition is now available for Xbox Series X/S and PC. It adds many new features to the game. In addition to better maps and aircraft models, the update added helicopters, four classic commercial airports, and a number of aircraft from previous games in the series.
