Today Asobo, developer of Microsoft Flight Simulator, announced that the upcoming world update focusing on the United Kingdom will be delayed.
Luckily, it’s not a large delay, and the developer expects to release it only one week after its original target date on January 26.
We also learn that it’ll include 70 points of interest on top of the previously announced digital elevation map and five airports (Manchester Barton (EGCB), Liverpool John Lennon (EGGP), Land’s End (EGHC), Barra (EGPR), and Out Skerries (EG78). We’ll also get five new cities enhanced by photogrammetry including London, and those are the cause of the delay.
Below you can see the first three screenshots from England, Scotland, and Ireland, alongside a video featuring the aerodynamic improvements made since launch.
