This weekend we tell you the news that Asobo Studio, the developers of Microsoft Flight Simulator, prepared for the aeronautical simulator. In a broadcast on Twitch they said that the next world update would focus on the UK, which they will add soon DirectX 12 support (which is linked to the version for Xbox consoles), and also that the virtual reality compatibility will arrive in December. However, it was not clear if it will be compatible with all VR helmets, something that we now confirm, nor the release date: December 22, 2020.

“Be open to all devices,” she said. Martial Bossard, Executive Producer Microsoft Flight Simulator, in the aforementioned broadcast. “The Oculus family, the Valve family; all helmet families will be compatible“. Again, there is another question to mention the Oculus helmets: get to the digital store of these glasses, operated by Facebook? At the moment we have no details about it.
