14 Years of Graphic Evolution - FSX vs Flight Simulator 2020

Videos that appeared on the Flight Sim channel compare the graphics in the latest installment of Microsoft Flight Simulator with older games - Microsoft Flight Simulator X (2006) and X-Plane 11 (2017). One of the materials also compares in-game locations with real world counterparts side by side.

MS Flight Simulator can take your breath away.

On the Flight Sim channel on YouTube, a video appeared, which summarizes the last several years of progress in the field of graphics in flight simulators. On the video we can see a comparison of locations from Microsoft Flight Simulator X released in 2006 and the latest installment, titled simply Microsoft Flight Simulator.

As we can see, the difference is truly colossal - virtually all aspects of visuals have improved enormously, from 3D model details, through textures to lighting. Microsoft Flight Simulator also emerges victorious from the clash with the competing X-Plane 11 (released in 2017).

Anyway, Microsoft's new simulator looks good enough to withstand even comparison with the real world - which is depicted on another movie on the same channel.

Microsoft Flight Simulator will debut on PCs in a few days, on August 18. It will also be released later on Xbox One.
