The addition of VR could be one of the biggest upgrades to the game. While aircraft cockpits are frequently very realistic in Flight Simulator, staring at a monitor doesn’t match the situational awareness you’d have as a real pilot. Even as limited as VR will be (you can’t grab controls like you would in real life), it should feel more natural than using a mouse and keyboard to look around.
Asobo will soon act on its promises of an ever-evolving title, too. A Sim Update 1 arriving in November will tackle community feature requests, while an update after that will improve the world itself. If you’ve spotted a technical inaccuracy or towering monolith, there’s a real chance it’ll be fixed before too long.
