Microsoft has this week confirmed the PC system requirements you will need to enjoy their new Microsoft Flight Simulator, which will soon be launching on Windows PCs and Xbox One offering both single player and multiplayer modes.
Developed by Asobo Studio and published by Xbox Game Studios exclusively for Microsoft platforms, will enable pilots to fly the full circumference of a virtual earth and uses textures from topographical data from Bing Maps, providing three-dimensional representations of the world features, while Microsoft Azure technology will be used to create terrain, trees, grass, buildings, and water accessing over two petabytes of data from the cloud on demand.
“Azure AI analyzes map data and photogrammetry to generate photorealistic 3D models of buildings, trees, terrain, and so on. This allows the simulator to depict most parts of the world in 3D photo-realism, and other parts in high definition.”
