This is all by examining data from Bing that than by using Azure to stream the data in real-time into Microsoft Flight Simulator to make what you’re seeing and flying over as accurate as possible. What it means is that while you’re flying, data will stream to your PC from the cloud to help fill in all the ground, sky, and weather details. This means that it will adapt to your available bandwidth. If you have a fast internet connection, the data will stream and update much faster and closer to real-time.

But if your bandwidth is low, it automatically adjusts the amount of data downloaded to your machine. What’s more is the attention to detail that is in this game like the way clouds move and react to mountains, valleys, and hills. Or how the fog generates to create thick, dense layers for you to navigate through. Moreover, there is a day and night cycle in the game. The cockpit is made up of high-fidelity, 4K materials. The game will be releasing next year for the Microsoft Store and with Xbox Game Pass for PC.
