The Aerosoft team presented the physical version of the Microsoft Flight Simulator. A total of ten discs will be included in the box. Even if you save yourself a large part of the download, an internet connection is still required for the flight simulation.
A few weeks before the release of the Microsoft Flight Simulator, the makers of Aerosoft announced further details on the publication of the flight simulation. Accordingly, the game will also be available as a physical version in Europe. Both the Standard and Premium Editions will be available here with a total of ten enclosed discs. Almost 90GB of data is stored on the DVDs – including packaging and printed instructions.
However, there are no differences between the digital and physical versions. Especially players with a slower internet connection can save themselves the download of at least around 90GB of data by purchasing the box. But already during installation the game will download the current simulation code and update your game data. According to Aerosoft, however, a permanent connection to the cloud is needed to exploit the full potential of the Microsoft Flight Simulator. After installation, the discs are no longer needed.
Only this week, those responsible have the release and content of the three different editions of the Microsoft Flight Simulator (buy now for 69.99 €) announced. The game will be available for PC from August 18, 2020. In the standard version of the simulation, players can look forward to 20 airplane models and 30 handmade airport replicas. In the most expensive Premium Deluxe Edition there are even 30 planes and 40 airports. The Xbox Game Pass is also equipped with a version. This is the Standard Edition.
