The upcoming flight sim is shaping up to take what might just be the biggest leap of all time in the simulation genre.
This game is going to be massive. I played the original FS as a kid and really enjoyed learning how to navigate from one airport to another. But I guarantee you this game will have better scenery than this: https://oldgamesdownload.co...
I appreciate your guarantee, it was hard to tell if it would have better graphics.
lol.....I feel strongly that I am right.....this time.
I truly hope they release a killer flight stick for it
I played that one, too. Back then the graphics were top-notch.
I can see it doing quite well, it has a decent following on Windows, and will be available on Xbox gamepass as well so i get to try it for free !!
Exactly. PC Game Pass for me, day one. I'm stoked for the game.
LOL. I remember playing Flight Sim as a kid as well. It was so amazing at the time. I don't see this being game of the year or anything like that, but I do believe it is a diversity game, and it looks like it will have a cult following.
It adds depth to a library. I think sometimes that is overlooked
I wouldn't put Flight Simulator in the same conversation as The Last of Us Part 2, Ghost of Tsushima or Halo Infinite. I'm sure it will be a great game, but very, very niche.
oh god no, not in that league, it's not that type of game. I do think that it's going to be huge though. I never cared about a flight sim game in my life but I am waaaay to excited for this game. No idea why. I just want to fly over my house. Maybe check out some of the destinations that I've traveled to in the past. Probably won't put more than 30 hours into it unless there's a campaign of some kind.
microsoft propaganda always works ehe, evey version they hype you up clouding gaming my a...
Disagrees don't lie: Flight simulator will be bigger than TLOU 2 and halo. You heard It here first. Forget cyberpunk, Elden ring, FF 7, nioh 2, TLOU 2, Ghosts, hellblade 2, Resi 3, etc. it's actually flight simulator that has everyone frothing at the mouth
I find these flight sims very boring and monotonous but I understand that some people love these types of games to death and I respect that but these games will never be huge in the general scheme of things, but rather being huge within the flight sim community. So putting this type of game against generally popular games like tlou, GTA and Halo is rather pointless.
"I wouldn't put Flight Simulator in the same conversation as The Last of Us Part 2, Ghost of Tsushima or Halo Infinite." Yet that's exactly what you did. I wouldn't even call FS a game, but an application for flight enthusiasts and the like.
I didn't do it, the article did. "When you think of big upcoming games for 2020, odds are, you think of The Last of Us Part 2, Ghost of Tsushima, Halo Infinite, and the like- and you wouldn’t be wrong to do so, as those studios are surely working on some outstanding experiences. That being said, if you only play those games next year, you’ll be missing out on a massive, planet-sized game from Microsoft." "this could potentially be the biggest game of the year, if not of the entire next generation"
@2pac Yeah, I tend to avoid actually reading gamingbolt articles; I'm sure you can understand.
There are flight simulators that are still being updated by fans over a decade after the development stopped. Ps5 didn't even have backwards compatibility because people aren't replaying last of us again and again. Flying is something you can get better and better at so the challenge is new with every plane. You can't say that with single player games.
It's really popular, or at least was(haven't seen much about it for a while before the new version). Iits been around for a long time on PC and is a very accurate simulator. I think the new one will do well, particularly on PC. I think people expecting it to be a game, like a forgiving ace combat or something, may be disappointed, or at least frustrated. It's not forgiving, and if you turn your plane upside down, it's probably going to crash
But, niche games add to diversity on the platform. Truly there is nothing like MS Flight Sim out there today.
What are you even talking about? Ur making trouble for no reason comparing games that no one even mentioned.
The article mentioned them. If you bothered to read the article you would know that.
It absolutely does not mention them
No one cares. Now give me the most unrealistic taxi sim with a bunch of Offspring music, that will be BIG
We'll have to wait for the dream cast 2 for that.
Can we do something like this but in outerspace or in the ocean... actually, do outerspace 1st with the ability to go warp speed 😎 Sony Space Simulator 😂
Elite Dangerous says hello.
Wow that game looks amazing. But that was 6 years ago... imagine what next gen consoles can do with something like that
ArmyVetGamer38m ago(Edited 27m ago) Can we do something like this but in outerspace or in the ocean... actually, do outerspace 1st with the ability to go warp speed 😎 Sony Space Simulator 😂*** I'd certainly be up for some Scavengers Oddyssey https://www.youtube.com/wat...
For a sealife sim, look out for Beyond Blue: https://www.youtube.com/wat... Coming soon on all platforms. It's developed closely with the BBC and their Blue Planet 2 show, so full of realistic and accurate sealife to find and look at.
Star Citizen is what you are looking for. It is currently in development and it will be exactly that when it is released. It is PC only though.
Yeah, I doubt it.
Only gamingbolt would make an article detailing the reason Flight Simulator is a big deal.
Of course gamingbolt of course... As long as the checks clear all is well at gamingbolt.
They forgot to add "Says Microsoft"
"this could potentially be the biggest game of the year, if not of the entire next generation" lol, oh gamingbolt your nonsense knows no bounds.
This Simulator destroy everthing in the graphics department its not even fair
Doesn't matter. Crysis did the same thing and didn't sell like crazy.
Is not going to be and you will see.
Can't wait for computers or consoles to be powerful enough to play this in VR with Ultra settings.
Article full of "could this" and could that" - basically a lot of speculation about what we 'could' expect, such as weather matching real life (which probably won't happen). If it's like the previous games, didn't they just use Google Maps and apply an algorithm which detected what was supposed to be mountains and crevices, then the AI simply formed the land based on that - like Google Earth? I mean, the game is certainly ambitious if it's really going for a 1:1 world with fully rendered realistic buildings, but I'd imagine it'll be generic buildings placed over the satellite scans and only the popular landmarks being made in high detail. Size-wise, if they keep the rendering low by reusing models, I can't see why it can't be as big, technically. Look at Train Sim World, a real 2-hour train journey in real life actually takes 2-hours in-game with various landmarks and stations modelled on the real thing. Te game is niche though so a lot of people won't bother with it but, simulators usually do alright if they have the quality to keep people invested.
With VR and HOTAS support it will be a day one but for me
