Is your rig up to scratch?

Despite all of the chaos in the world at the moment Microsoft Flight Simulator appears to still be on track for a 2020 release. The game has some lofty aims and will feature all 37,000 real-world airports, real-time air traffic and will also simulate the entire world, yes the whole goddam world!

Given all the game wants to achieve it would be fair to assume that you’ll need a high-end rig to run it. Whilst that is true of the ‘ideal’ system specs, the minimum specs aren’t too eye-watering. At the higher end, you’ll be needing an RTX 2080 / Radeon VII plus 32GB of RAM so if you want to see the best the game has to offer you’d better get saving now. Whichever spec you might meet you’ll need a cool 150GB of storage free.
