Fly with me, let us fly, let us fly in VR.
The team behind Microsoft Flight Simulator Added support for virtual reality headsets.
In a post on Xbox Wire, Jorg Neumann, the head of Microsoft Flight Simulator, wrote that the title now supports a variety of VR hardware, including Windows Mixed Reality headsets and technologies from Oculus, Valve and HTC.
Neumann wrote: “The flight simulation community has always been a very active and insightful partner in shaping how the team approaches VR, and continues to be a key partner in our continued development as we make further improvements and add new features to the simulation.”
“The addition of VR to Microsoft Flight Simulator is a direct result of community feedback, and we hope to continue participating in the future of franchising with us.”
Prior to this, Microsoft Flight Simulator was launched in August this year. In our review, we said that this game is “very suitable for experienced pilots and beginners alike.”
By September, the game had attracted more than 1 million players, and then the company revealed that this number had doubled to 2 million in mid-December. So far, Microsoft Flight Simulator is still the biggest title of Xbox Game Pass on PC.
Prior to its release, analyst firm Jon Peddie Research said that this game will help transfer $2.6 billion in PC hardware and peripherals. There is no doubt that some of these revenues come from virtual reality headsets.
Currently, Microsoft Flight Simulator is only available on PC, but the company revealed that it will introduce the game to Xbox Series X and SeriesS in the summer of 2021.
