There’s no doubt that one of the most impressive looking games (or digital things) for 2020 is the latest Microsoft Flight Simulator. Developed by Asobo Studio this Xbox Game Studios production sees the long-running simulator return in style. From its groundbreaking use of live satellite and cloud-based data through to its use of AI to correctly render buildings and other structures based on high definition images, trust us, you haven’t seen anything quite like this before.

The fact that you can hop in a cockpit and fly over any place on the planet… is to quote one of our favourite after-school programs from back in the day - Amazing. And thanks to the dual combo of an AMR Ryzen 3800X CPU and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti GPU we were able to capture and put together the following 4K 60fps Microsoft Flight Simulator videos.

Microsoft Flight Simulator - Around the World in a Day




As per the whole you can go anywhere on the planet hook that’s exactly what we did - visiting places from all over on July 26 - using live satellite info for things like weather and other conditions. It’s the sort of thing that not only appeals to the pilot in all of us but our appreciation for the planet too. Not to get all hippy but Microsoft Flight Simulator soothes the soul and presents a one world vision in a way that an all-star pop song never could.

Microsoft Flight Simulator - New York Landing at 0400




Another awesome thing about Flight Simulator is that with real-time weather and data (and you can turn this off to bring the pain, storm-wise, to any place you want) is it gives the chance to be in two places at once. This video was inspired by the simple rhetorical idea, ‘Hey, wouldn’t it be cool to land a plane in New York?’. The answer was a resounding yes, and with 6pm in Melbourne (the time of the flight) that meant a 4am New York skyline had a truly stunning orange glow.

For more on Flight Simulator, be sure to check out our in-depth preview.

Both videos were edited from footage captured thanks to access to a special Microsoft Flight Simulator preview. Music and direction by Kbit - aka Kosta Andreadis (me) - from an unreleased 2020 album currently in the works. For more Kbit jams, head here: https://kbit.bandcamp.com/.
