Microsoft has mostly stayed silent about their upcoming game/simulator, appropriately called Microsoft Flight Simulator. The company has finally shared some news regarding their highly anticipated sim. System requirements for Microsoft Flight Simulator have now been made available, and they seem quite reasonable. How the game will actually work has yet to be seen, however, if these requirements are in fact accurate, then it only indicated that MFS is quite optimized.

Microsoft released three sets of system requirements, Minimum, Recommended, and Ideal, which you can read below. The most interesting thing to note is the size of the game, which is a whopping 150 GB. This is not that out of place as Modern Warfare alone takes 175 GB of space. Plus, given how near MFS’s graphics look to real life, the massive size makes sense. Below you can check out the official gameplay trailer of Microsoft Flight Simulator

System Requirements are mentioned below and on the official site.

  • OS: Windows 10 (Nov 2019 Update – 1909)

Just a reminder that if you haven’t been keeping track, MFS will contain the entire world for players to fly around. The massive amount of data is provided by Bing Maps. We all know that every one of us is going check out our houses. The game is supposed to launch somewhere in 2020. However, given what is going on in the world, I would expect a delay of some sort.
