Microsoft has announced a new installment of its long-running Microsoft Flight Simulator series. The new Flight Simulator, which was teased briefly at Microsoft’s E3 keynote, is powered by Microsoft’s Azure cloud artificial intelligence. A new Microsoft Flight Simulator was revealed with a teaser trailer at the company’s E3 press conference Sunday, and it’s coming out in 2020.
The wildly impressive visuals are a result of Microsoft’s Azure artificial intelligence and satellite imagery. The cities and rural environments are beautiful and check out those blue seas. The planes don’t look half-bad either.
“From light planes to wide-body jets, fly highly detailed and stunning aircraft in an incredibly realistic world,” Microsoft wrote in its teaser description.
“Create your flight plan and fly anywhere on the planet. Enjoy flying day or night and face realistic, challenging weather conditions.”
The Sims turns 20 this year, and while The Sims 4 came out in 2014, it remains a resilient game. In May while reporting earnings, EA said The Sims 4 audience grew 35% year-over-year.
Like its predecessors, the game has you flying airplanes of different types, simulating the experience of actually flying as you soar over beautiful, realistic.
Electronic Arts showed off the next big expansion for The Sims 4 at its EA Play event today as part of the buildup to E3 (Electronic Entertainment Expo) next week. The Sims 4: Island Living gives players a ton of new content to keep cool under the scorching sun. It launches June 21 for PC and Mac. Console players can pick it up July 16.
The developers also teased the Realm of Magic game pack coming this fall.
This add-on pack naturally introduces beachy looks and water-based activities. But to enable that, the developer also added the ability for Sims to enter open water. This means they can go from standing on land to playing in the ocean. So now your Sims can swim, float, or even snorkel. But beyond the water is the island itself. You can build a home on its coastline or hidden away up in the mountains near the active volcano.
