Hmm, wasn't quite sure where to post this but. Well this will have to do.

I just hope my PC can handle it. And that its not pay to play.

On my radar too. I'm on a couple of Facebook groups that the testers are on. some of the footage looks amazing. Especially as as my 1st flight sim was on the Spectrum almost 40 years ago
I think it will need a beast of a machine to play at it best settings
An excuse for a new pc methinks :)

It will be a cash cow i think
Only so many airports to choose, whilst most will be there, i think the optimised ones will be at a cost. same with planes, terrains.

The standard version is to be included on Gamepass so i'll be able to try it and then decide what to do from there.In the meantime i have IL2 Sturvovik and DCS, and to a lesser degree World of Warplanes for my aerial enjoyment.

Well I'll be interested to see what you think.. I just think there maybe a catch round the corner. A pay to play subscription. Saying that the full version is well over £100 so maybe not. Ive watched all the Youtube stuff on it and I don't think Ive ever looked more forward to a game. My son who is in IT has told me I do need to get a more powerful PC. So thats a bit of a blow. But hey ho....

A change from work or talking about scollfire anyway :D

Will do mate.

If you like planes, try the IL2 series or DCS

The early IL2 is dirt cheap. DCS is very good, and you get free aircraft too, although should it get the bug, its potentially expensive to add some new ones (Harrier comes to mind, and very lifelike on my very limited time at controls of a one in mid 70's)
