Microsoft Flight Simulator's World Update IX sees the impressive and visually stunning flight sim spruce up the beautiful countrysides, cities, and landmarks of Italy and Malta. And with a new 4K trailer giving us a look at the highlights (with music that is very reminiscent of The Godfather) it's an impressive Mediterranean fly-over.
"Fly throughout the historic cities of Rome and Venice, soar above Mediterranean coastlines, and navigate sheer-faced peaks, all rendered in lifelike realism with World Update IX: Italy & Malta," writes Jorg Neumann, Head of Microsoft Flight Simulator. "The Microsoft Flight Simulator team has refined this area with the latest geospatial data available, including digital elevation modeling, aerial and satellite imagery, and triangulated irregular network (TIN) modeling of 20 cities, including Rome, Naples, Venice, and Milan."
World Update IX includes:
Four handcrafted airports:
Palermo Airport (LICJ) in Sicily
Sondrio Airport (LILO) in the southern Tyrol
Marina di Campo Airport (LIRJ) on Elba Island
Bolanzo Airport (LIPB) in the southern Tyrol
Enhanced detail of 100 other airports
94 points of interest in Italy
11 points of interest in Malta
Three bush trips
Three discovery flights
Three new landing challenges.
And it's available now for free for all Microsoft Flight Simulator players on PC and Console.
