Microsoft is continuing its alpha test for the next Microsoft Flight Simulator. The dev team shared a few updates about what’s coming down the pipeline for the simulator’s alpha and shared some gorgeous screenshots from alpha testers that shows how far along the simulator is already.
In the most recent development update, the Flight Simulator team announced that Alpha Build Update 1.3.X.X. is coming next week. The new build adds several fixes for the Airbus A320, along with other additions.
The team is also looking to add more testers to the Alpha in the coming weeks. That said, testers are already getting hands-on time with Microsoft’s newest flight simulator and are sharing screenshots of their flights. Here’s a gallery of user-submitted screenshots credited to the player who submitted them.

The incredible level of detail probably explains why the Alpha has a huge 150GB install size. Developers have said previously that they want to include “all airports on Earth,” to give you a sense of the ambitious scale for the project.
