Microsoft Flight Simulator now supports most virtual reality headsets. If you have a SteamVR or OpenXR compatible headset, like HTC Vive, Oculus or Windows Mixed Reality, you can explore the world in VR by following the latest update. Headphones owners of Windows Mixed Reality were able to experience the feature first as part of a closed beta, but it is now open to everyone.
Along with virtual reality support, Asobo added real-time snow and ice coverage with Sim Update 2. One of the most attractive features of Microsoft Flight Simulator is its weather function, which aims to replicate real-world conditions in a given time. Updating the live time should help to deepen the immersion.
Also in the latest patch are two new training missions for the Airbus A320neo and a holiday treasure hunt with festive lights adorning 12 landmarks. In addition, the update includes a number of adjustments, optimizations and corrections, along with free paintings.
