Flight Simulator celebrates arrival of UK and Ireland makeover with stunning new trailer
Flight Simulator's third World Update - which points its wand of finessing at the UK and Ireland - is finally here after a bit of a delay, and you'll be precisely the opposite of shocked to learn it looks absolutely breathtaking in its launch trailer. World Update 3 - which follows equally stunning makeovers for the United States and Japan - introduces improved aerial and elevation data for the UK and Ireland, "over 70" new points of interest, five new hand-crafted airports - Barra, Land's End, Liverpool, Manchester-Barton, and Out Skerries - plus five brand-new photogrammetry cities. The latter bring more accurate versions of Birmingham, Bristol, Cambridge, Oxford, and London into the sim, and while that may be a disappointingly England-centric selection, developer Asobo thankfully hasn't completely forgotten about the rest of the UK and Ireland.

Flight Simulator's third World Update - which is set to give the UK and Ireland a welcome spruce-up - will once again launch a little later than anticipated, with its release now scheduled for next Tuesday, 16th February. World Update 3, which continues the impressive work seen in previous makeovers for the United States and Japan, had previously been given slightly delayed launch window of 9th-11th February by developer Asobo as it attempted to address teething troubles relating to the integration of new photogrammetry city data into the game. While the studio didn't indicate the reason for today's additional delay, it did confirm that World Update 3 is now "in its final polish phase" and that its launch has been "locked in" for 16th February.

As far as the new airports go, there's Barra, Land's End, Liverpool, Manchester-Barton, and Out Skerries, and the new photogrammetry cities were previously confirmed as Birmingham, Bristol, Cambridge, Oxford, and London.
