Flight Simulator gives Italy and Malta a bit of a change

Developer Asobo’s slow and continuous improvement of Microsoft Flight Simulator’s stunning flight simulation continues today with the arrival of its latest global update, this time giving Italy and Malta a stunning change.

Today’s update in Italy and Malta marks the ninth global update for Flight Simulator since its launch in 2020, and follows similar improvements for Andorra, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France , Germany, Gibraltar, Iceland, Ireland, Japan, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and United Kingdom.

As always, Asobo is doing a lot with its latest global update, and is launching four handcrafted airports across Italy and Malta – Palermo Airport (LICJ), Sondrio Airport (LILO), Marina di Campo Airport (LIRJ) and Bolanzo Airport (LIPB). ) – includes upgrades for 100 current airports.

This is in addition to 94 new points of interest for Italy and 11 more for Malta (detailed below), new elevation data, new aerial imagery, as well as photogrammetry overhaul for 12 cities: Ancona, Bari, Cittadella, Milan, Naples, Padua, Paestum, Parma, Pavia, Perugia, Rome, Turin and Venice. Unfortunately, there doesn’t seem to be a trailer yet to accompany the release today.

Wait, though, because it’s not over yet; fans of the beautiful experiences curated by Flight Simulator are getting nine more in today’s global update: three bush trips (The Apennines, Tour of Sardinia, Trip to Sicily), three new exploration flights around Venice, Rome and Florence, along with three new landing challenges – Reggio Calabria (Epic), Palermo Falcone Borsellino (Strong Winds) and Genova Setri (Epic).

Flight Simulator World Update 9 is now free to download on Xbox and PC (and also available through Xbox Cloud Gaming), but players will need to update their game first and then head to the in-game market to get new content.

The Italy and Malta makeover of Flight Simulator marked Asobo’s third global update in 2022. Based on previous developer feedback, we can expect at least three more before the end of the year. , as well as various new Sim updates, DLSS support And of course, helicopters. And before all that, there’s the less important issue of Flight Simulator’s free Top Gun expansion, which Asobo said recently confirmed that it will come on May 25.
