25 Pictures That Show the Insane Realism of Microsoft’s New Flight Simulator 2020

In June of last year, Microsoft announced a brand new 2020 edition of its famous Microsoft Flight Simulator series.

Some cool new features that were announced include satellite data for terrain and scenery textures, Azure AI (Artificial Intelligence) integration, brand new flight models like the DA62 & TBM930, and definitely many other awesome new features.

The most impressive part of the new Flight Simulator 2020 will be the ultra-realistic scenery, environment and aircraft models.

We went searching online and found 25¬†amazing pictures that prove the insane realism that’s coming to Microsoft Flight Simulator. From cloud formations to gorgeous scenery, stunningly realistic cockpits and beautiful airport environments, these pictures will make you long to trying out the new flight simulator software.

(Initially, I wanted to create a story with just 10-15 pictures, but as there are so many awesome shots published already, I didn’t want to keep them from you!)

I don’t know about you, but most of these pictures actually make you wonder if they’re not just real-life pictures. The realism is quite literally insane!

All this will probably require a crazy PC-setup, but I’m still very much looking forward to trying it out after its launch, foreseen later this year.
