Microsoft announced today that it has released its second World Update for Flight Simulator, which provides an enhanced flight experience in the United States.

“World Update II: USA features an improved digital elevation model with resolution up to one meter, new aerial textures that significantly improve the appearance in several states across the country, and four new hand-crafted airports (Atlanta, Dallas/Fort Worth, Friday Harbor, and New York Stewart),” Microsoft Jorg Neumann says. “We’ve also made visual improvements to 48 other airports and added 50 new high-fidelity points of interest across the country to make your state-side journey stunning in every way.”

It also provides new activities via new Discovery Flights through some iconic locations on each coast, which might be a nice diversion during the pandemic.

World Update II: USA is free for Microsoft Flight Simulator on Xbox Game Pass for PC, Windows 10, and Steam.
