Microsoft Flight Simulator Pre-Alpha Gameplay (game's map is basically the earth)

When Microsoft Flight Simulator launches some time in 2020, it will give its users access to the entire planet. Just spin the globe on an X-COM-style world map, zoom into the airport that you’d like to start at, and you’re ready to go.

Assets will not only include all of our planet’s 197 million square miles of land and water, but more than 2 million cities and over 40,000 individual airports. To achieve this, developers at Asobo Studio are tapping directly into Microsoft’s Bing Maps dataset. Flight Simulator will draw from two of the service’s three available petabytes of geographical information. That includes satellite imagery and 3D photogrammetry data, with some resolutions down to just three centimeters.

The results are stunning. New York City looks nearly indistinguishable from the real place. Flying into Chicago’s O’Hare Airport, passing the skyline and making the big, left-hand turn on final approach is a trip I’ve made dozens of times over the years. It looks incredible, especially at night with thousands of lights — each with a different and accurate color temperature — winking down below. But those kinds of high-quality a*sets come at a cost.

Last week, we learned that The Last of Us Part 2 would ship on two Blu-ray discs. A single copy of Microsoft Flight Simulator would need 20,000 of them. So, instead of installing the game off disc, or even downloading a large portion of it as part of the initial installation, consumers will stream in a*sets while they play.

can't wait for this. 1 review said they flew over their suburb house in arizona, and the balcony was exactly right.. crazy how much detail they put into this. i feel like this game is bigger than itself - the technology completely expands what video games can do

It ain't a real train simulator without homeless people pissing and sleeping in the train and unauthorized people jumping on the train tracks forcing ya'll to stop until the police come and remove 'em
