It does look amazing. 8-)   I just want to see some Xbox footage now as opposed to PC to see what that looks like and if it is limited in anyway compared to the PC version.  Either way, Day 1 (whenever that will be).

If only there was a Black Shark 3 and it looked like that.

Not entirely sure how I’m going to get on without choppers or weapon systems but God that looks good.

I want to fly to North Korea and those little islands you can see on google earth where hardly anyone lives.

And do it on a small plane to get a sense of the scale. Its looking like the best thing M$ have ever done.

 

I mean this tech destroys everything doesn't it? I mean fucking hell - it was made by a driving dev ffs. Imagine Forza Unlimited.

Good news is it also appears to be.a Series X title as Phil Spencer picked this game when asked (Gamelab interview) to select one he was most looking forward to in terms of technical capabilities. He said the work the team were doing on this with Series X was stunning. Hopefully we see more during the July event.

 

Just look at this, utterly stupendous looking game:

Some of these shots taken as spectacular. On that last one, it really does make you do a double-take. I know it's the usual "it will be done when it's done", but give us a release date already! :(

Date at the end of this - 18 August - must admit it surprised me.

 

I'm hoping it comes out for console with an auto-pilot option although that might be seen as  missing the point completely....

"Rllmukers will never believe this one date!" 

 

Any chance of a clue?

They just need to bundle the chatpad with the Xbox version so that you can play it just like the PC one without needing a flightstick and keyboard

Various airports and aircraft confined to pricey 'Deluxe' and  very pricey 'Premium' editions. O Hare and Heathrow would have been nice for the Standard, as would the Dreamliner, but I'll only be sightseeing across the world anyway so won't feel like I'm missing out too much...

Ooof... £110 for Premium Ultra Deluxe version. I remember spending £60-70 for FSX Deluxe back in the day but I guess that was ever so long ago. I do have GamePass but I did promise myself I'd buy this regardless. I guess I need to talk myself into spending that much on a game / simulation.

 

[EDIT] I think I'll play it first on GamePass then if it really blows me away will pay for the Premium version. Makes sense to try before you buy etc. It's not like an introductory price or something.

That premium edition is almost the price of TWO years of pc game pass (at its currant price)!?!?!

what does it mean if you only have the 'standard' version, regarding the other airports? Presumably there's still something in Heathrow, right?
