Look up in the sky! It's a bird! It's a plane! Well...it really is a plane.
More accurately, you will be piloting the plane - Microsoft has announced that the Flight Simulator 2020 beta will begin on 30 July. Touted as the most realistic aerial simulator/game in the market, Microsoft will be granting beta access to alpha testers and invite-only access to players from the general public.
Along with the announcement comes the final build for the alpha test, where Microsoft focused on fixing bugs, adding content and giving the game an extra zing as they prepare for a polished release. Planes, airports and scenic views alike have been refurbished and cleaned-up. You can check out the full patch notes here.
Despite all of us being grounded due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Flight Simulator 2020 is a good way for us to take to the skies once again.
