Microsoft Flight Simulator to Get DLSS Support This Year

Microsoft Flight Simulator only recently acquired support of DirectX 12, and the developers have already announced support for DLSS technology for this particular version of the game.

Microsoft's Flight Simulator just recently received a free update that introduced DirectX 12 support, and now, during a Q&A session hosted by Studio Asobo, we've learned that the DX12 version of the game will also have DLSS support. The developers did not give an exact date, although they assure that the improvement will appear this year.

What will DLSS change?

It is a functionality that allows for the generation of image at higher or lower resolution while maintaining image clarity. By incorporating this technology into MFS, players will be able to better tailor the game to their hardware, making gameplay smoother and more optimized.

Players who prefer the version of Microsoft's Flight Simulator with DirectX 11 may be disappointed - DLSS will not be introduced in that version.

The reason for such a decision may be the fact that the game works stable enough and does not need more corrections. The same cannot be said about the DX12 version, which the developers are still working on, as we can hear in the interview.

The developers' plans

Also worth mentioning is the upcoming World Update 7: Australia, which will hit the game on January 31. The update will improve the appearance of this continent and introduce several new missions for virtual pilots. More information detailing the content of the update is expected to appear on the day of its release.

The creators have also released a schedule which gives players a closer look at the studio's plans for MFS development. So if you want to know exactly what is coming to the game in the coming months, you can find this list here. Currently, Microsoft's Flight Simulator is available on PC, Xbox Series X/S.
