Microsoft Flight Simulator World Update X: USA

Asobo revisits the US of A

The second update that Asobo released for Microsoft Flight Simulator covered the whole of the US, which was a mammoth task considering the distances and diverse nature of the landscape. It prompted mixed opinions from the users, who said frame rates in heavily populated areas tumbled; however, in fairness to Asobo, its regular updates have gone some way to mitigate these issues.

With this latest world update, we go back to the USA, revisiting some areas and adding more depth to others. As usual, it comes with more cities to explore, more high-quality airports to fly from and more Points of Interest (POIs) to marvel at.
