With support for virtual reality goggles, Asobo Studios has made Microsoft Flight Simulator an even more interesting game. The latest free update added support for the best virtual reality glasses on the market like Valve Index, Microsoft Mixed Reality, Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and even Oculus Quest if you use a cable to connect it to your computer.

In early December, this update was in beta. The new functionality is now available to all players. But, in addition to virtual reality glasses, you must also have a powerful computer, with the following minimum requirements: an i5-8400 or Ryzen 5 1500X CPU, as well as an Nvidia GTX 1080 video card or higher.

Best experience

With the famous flight simulator, the “virtual pilots” will get a more immersive and unique experience, namely they will admire the incredible realistic scenery and observe the details of the aircraft cockpits very closely.

A version of Microsoft Flight Simulator is planned for 2021 for the new Xbox Series X / S consoles. But, there is no information, if this virtual reality functionality will be available, since these consoles do not have this type of support.
