Take flight with Microsoft FS2020

The new FS2020 leaves its predecessor, FSX, in the dust, offering improved aerodynamics, and real-time weather and air traffic.

Take to the skies and explore the world

You can fly over the pyramids before landing at a replica of Cairo International Airport – that’s the breath-taking experience promised by Microsoft FS2020.

FS2020 price-tag fits the market average, but if you shop smart you can get it cheaper than almost every other simulator.

You can choose one of 30 different aircraft to explore detailed landscapes, with familiar models like the Airbus, Boeing, and Cessna available. However, you can also try out a few amphibious craft, private jets, and passenger planes.

There are over 37,000 airports to visit, or you can also stop at one of the 40 hand-crafted airports that are almost exact replicas of their real-world counterparts. If that’s not exciting enough, you can also visit your own house to do a fly-by.

FS2020 comes with more base features than any other simulator, including competitors X Plane and Prepar3D. While they also offer a wide variety of airplanes and expansive worlds, these are add-ons created by 3rd parties, and it could cost a pretty penny to get them up to the same standard as Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020.

Although it doesn’t include VR in the initial release like the VR-ready DCS, FS2020 has the option of adding it later.

Where can you run this program?

FS2020 works on Xbox One and Windows 10. You’ll need at least 8GB RAM, 2GB VRAM, and an NVIDIA GTX 770 or Radeon RX 570. Much of the environment will be streamed, so you also need a fast connection.

Is there a better alternative?

No. None of FS2020’s competitors include the same number of features, quality, and accuracy in one affordable package.

Our take

Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 combines an expansive world with great design, various aircraft, and destinations, and a shared-world multiplayer option to create an excitingly realistic experience.

Should you download it?

Yes. With excellent graphics, gameplay, and realism, FS2020 promises a memorable experience for any fan of flight simulators.
