Yesterday, we were pleased to host another Developer Livestream. Our panel of Jorg, Seb, Martial, and special guest Dominik Gallus from Working Title answered many questions from the community and discussed upcoming new features and improvements coming soon to Microsoft Flight Simualtor
, including some details about Sim Update 15
which is currently targeted for release in March.
If you missed watching the session live, you can catch the VOD below. We will also have a written transcript posted on our forums
next week for those of you who prefer text to video.
Finally, we'd like to announce a special collaborative Twitch stream
with our friends at Next Level Racing
scheduled for next week. Everyone is welcome to join a group flight in Australia from Gold Coast to Sydney. During the broadcast, we'll be giving away several prizes, including the Grand Prize of a Next Level Racing Flight Simulator
home cockpit (USD $799 value!). The event starts at 6pm PST on Wednesday, February 7 (0200 UTC on Thursday, February 8) on the Official MSFS Twitch channel
