Microsoft Flight Simulator F35 Release Date and What We Know So Far
Since its launch over a year ago, Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 is not short on add-ons. Even though it recently received its first paid DLC, the Reno Air Races, we’ve been lacking in toys for military aircraft.
This is changing in January, as developers IndiaFoxtEcho have confirmed that it is ready for takeoff in a Facebook postost.
Microsoft Flight Simulator F-35 Release Date
IndiaFoxtEcho plans to release F-35s to various markets in the “first day of January”, but it is likely that it will take between a few days to three to four weeks for the F-35s to be assessed and finally appear.
After a Facebook panic on 21 December, where devs confirmed that they had put the release on hold to address a few issues, this is now. We were able to quickly resolve this issue and are now ready to sign off the aircraft. If we get fair winds, we should be able to take it into the sky before February.
Devs confirmed that more testing had been done. “In the last few days, we have continued testing F-35 and have also received support by the Microsoft testing team.” The F-35 appears to work well, and occasional CTDs (crash-to-desktop) have been confirmed once more not to be related to the aircraft.
What is the cost of F-35?
The devs have not yet revealed the final price, as they wait for currency exchange to confirm the release time. Yes, it does sound a bit odd. However, we would love to see a figure that is close to launch.
The manual has been released in draft form. This is a great way to get started on learning about the new systems before you buy the actual aircraft.
We look forward to getting our hands onto the F-35 Lightning II over the next few weeks.
