Apparently uses azure cloud to stream game data because it would otherwise take up multiple TB's on your hard drive.

I've never played any games in this series before, but I think I'll give this a whirl just for the graphics (that is if my PC can manage a decent performance). Looks like a really chill game.

I have a flight stick from 2001 that came with Combat Flight Simulator for Win Me. It had legit next-gen features like Universal Serial Bus connector that didn't require PC restart every time you connect and disconnect it. And drivers that came on CD instead of floppy disks. I hope it works in 2020 for this game :lol:

Its contracted out to Asobo, people who made Plague Tale. That's why it looks so good. I'm sure the Frenchies will also ultimately drop the base Xbone version. I dunno how this will run on Jaguar cores but I'd love to see it lol.

I was very much into the Flight Sim till few years back. I even got the Logitech X52 Hotas and Flight Yoke system to take the experience to the next level. However, the older version (FSX) was a chore to install and manage. Being an old sim, there were a lot of bugs and crashes. Most of the important features, such as planes, scenery and tool kits were offered by 3P companies and they were quote expensive if you take into the USD conversion rates. I invested into this hobby for 2 years and learned to fly B777 and B747. Then I got married and forgot about it. I think, now is the time to clean the dust of my hotas and yoke.

 

This new one looks amazing in terms of graphics. Moreover, some of the 3P party features such as Weather engine and AI Traffic are inbuilt. However, there will be a 3P marketplace where you could purchase additional aircraft, scenery and flight planner. I will be waiting for PMDG to deliver their B777 and B747 to the marketplace. It would be amazing as their aircrafts are very realistic in terms of performance and attention to detail.

Not investigation but if you like plane videos and related topics, check out Wendover Productions on Youtube. One of my favorite channel.

They apparently did spend $ 500 million on Halo Infinite. God knows where that money went.
