Microsoft Flight Simulator expands Spain, Portugal and more in new update

Microsoft Flight Simulator has received a number of updates since its launch in 2020, and the latest ones flesh out the details from four different nations. Spain, Portugal, Gibraltar and Andorra, all of which call the Iberian Peninsula their home, are the latest regions to receive special treatment.

Flight Sim’s latest world update trailer shows some of the landmarks featured in the new content. Including castles, monasteries, cities, mountain ranges and of course airports. In total there are four new airports, 99 points of interest, four bush strips, four discovery flights and five new landing challenges. According to the trailer’s description, the peninsula has been “enhanced with a host of new, high-resolution geographic enhancements, including elevation data, photogrammetry, and aerial imagery.” If you look at the trailer, it’s all true.

This is the eighth global update for Microsoft Flight Simulator. One of the first to give Japan the same treatment, with more cities, airports and the like. Since then, developer Asobo has added virtual reality support and even released the Game of the Year Edition as a free update to the base game.

Flight Sim was first launched on PC before coming to Xbox Series X/S, but it’s also playable on Xbox One thanks to Xbox Cloud Gaming. The streaming service doesn’t currently support keyboard and mouse controls, but that will be added in the future. Flight Sim will be one of the first games to use it.
