Microsoft Flight Simulator updates the Iberian Peninsula

Microsoft Flight Simulator updates the Iberian Peninsula

Any seasoned pilot knows that Microsoft Flight Simulator uses satellite data to offer a realistic representation of the different locations in the game. The game features amazing graphics that make you feel as if you were in the cockpit of a real plane, and a big part of that comes from offering detailed views of the terrain you can see from the sky. 

Although the launch version of Microsoft Flight Simulator already featured an impressive level of detail, developer Asobo Studio has been releasing a series of patches that enhanced specific countries. In the past, we have seen updates for Ireland, the UK, and the Nordic countries, among some others, but the latest update adds more details to the Iberian Peninsula: Spain, Portugal, Gibraltar, and Andorra.

World Update 8

World Update 8 is already available to all Microsoft Flight Simulator players on PC and Xbox consoles. It's a free update, and you don't have to pay extra if you already own the game. The update enhances the region with new high-resolution graphics by using photogrammetry data and aerial images. The countries in the Iberian Peninsula are rich in monuments and points of interest already, but this update adds about a hundred more, which you can now watch with all detail from the sky. 

Also, World Update 8 includes four new airports and discovery flights, as well as five new landing challenges that will take you around the region.
