Microsoft Flight Simulator Lets Players Play Its Old Versions in Virtual Plane Cockpits
An interesting new feature included as part of Microsoft’s 40th anniversary overhaul of Flight Simulator is the option to play older Flight Simulator games from inside the cockpit of a particular virtual aircraft. The long-running brand has a fascinating history that has only deepened over the years, and it seems that the creator, Asobo Studio, is aware of what would please the franchise’s longtime fans.
New, long-awaited features have been added to Microsoft’s flight simulator. The most noticeable additions to the game in the anniversary update are the helicopters and gliders, but the game has been updated in a number of ways that make the experience more appealing overall. Easter eggs play a significant role, with one being especially intriguing and complex.
Tom Warren, a YouTuber, found out that the latest Microsoft Flight Simulator can be used as a cockpit for older Flight Sim games. To achieve this, users need launch the game and enter the cockpit of the Diamond DA62 aircraft. When this is complete, turning on the ELT will activate the minigame. Players will be able to choose between FS1, FS2, FS3, and FS4 on the main cockpit screen, all of which use the original MFS interface.
A major upgrade was released for Microsoft Flight Simulator on its 40th anniversary. The game has a wide variety of new historical planes for players to fly, from the fabled Wright Flyer of 1903 to a faithful recreation of the Airbus A310. Obviously, though, the inclusion of helicopters and gliders is just as thrilling as the game’s main attraction, since it gives gamers a whole new way to enjoy Flight Sim.
Meanwhile, development on Flight Simulator’s world upgrades is moving forward, enhancing the already rich variety of openly explorable environments. The game’s attraction is apparent at first look, and Asobo Studio has made great strides in capitalising on this exceptional feature. The game has a planet’s worth of explorable places that players may explore in whatever order they want.
It’s easy to see why Microsoft Flight Simulator is one of the greatest games to play while tuning into a podcast, what with the availability of older versions of Flight Sim and the plethora of new post-launch content coming to the game in the future. To wrap things off, it’s worth noting that Microsoft and Asobo may have buried even more fascinating Easter eggs in the 40th anniversary update, but it may be some time before they’re all found.
