A NEW Microsoft Flight Simulator update lets you play old flight simulator games in the cockpit of an airplane.
Flight Simulator has been updated to celebrate the series’ 40th anniversary and the old games have been added as a hidden Easter egg.
Four games from the series are playable in the latest game by boarding an airplane and switching to the cockpit view.
To play these games, board the Diamond DA62 airplane and then into the cockpit view.
Once you’ve done that, toggle on the ELT switch and the in-game console will display some classic games from the series.
You can play the entire game from the cockpit if you wish, or just get a taste of how far the series has come.
The games are all from the 1980s, from Microsoft’s original release in 1982 to Flight Simulator 4 in 1989.
They can be controlled using the in-game keyboard, which you need to click with the mouse.
This makes the game quite difficult to control, but it’s a fun take on the series for dedicated fans.
If you play the older games, you can look back at how the series has evolved over the last 40 years.
To experience the games for yourself, all you have to do is make sure your game is fully updated.
This often happens automatically, but you can update it manually if it doesn’t.
In addition to the Easter Egg, a number of bug fixes and features have been included in the update.
New helicopters, planes and gliders have been added, including 24 classic activities from previous Flight Simulator games.
You can take part in Kitty Hawk’s maiden flight and a mission that includes the classic Spruce Goose aircraft built in the 1940’s.
The entire list of changes and additions can be found on the game’s page official site.
This latest Flight Simulator version came out in 2020 and has been very successful since its release.
It’s been well-received by fans, and this latest addition is just one of the reasons fans love it.
