Head of Flight Simulator Jorg Neumann revealed what’s in store for the game over the coming months in a recent Twitch Q&A.
Launching in late January, the UK world update will feature roughly 50-60 new points of interest and new handcrafted airports including Manchester Barton, Liverpool John Lennon and Land’s End.
Developer Asobo also hopes to include new procedural buildings including churches and cathedrals.
Neumann said last month that Microsoft is planning to deliver world updates “every two to three months on a rolling basis”.
The game’s first world update launched in late September. Focused on Japan, it featured an upgraded digital elevation map, high-resolution 3D photogrammetry for six Japanese cities, and six handcrafted local airports.
Its second world update focused on the United States. Released this week, it includes four new handcrafted airports (Atlanta, Dallas/Fort Worth, Friday Harbor and New York Stewart), improvements to 48 more airports, plus 50 new points of interest.
