Revealed during this year's E3, Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 has largely remained under the radar until today, when a new trailer further showcasing its serene, gorgeous world popped up.
The newest Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 trailer, which you can watch for yourself just below, reveals different parts of the world that is actually intended to cover our entire planet in detail, 44,000 airports and all.

In the trailer, a few different planes can be seen calmly flying above a variety of locations, from urban centers to lush green forests.
The title's weather system was also showcased, the trailer alternating between clear skies, what looks like the beginning of a thunderstorm and even including footage of flying through a sandstorm. Ground objects have seen improvements during the series' hiatus, evolving from flat, washed-out textures.
The impressive in-game visual results were obtained using a proprietary engine and an extreme amount of geographical data which the title streams from Microsoft's own Azure Cloud, website Ars Technica reports.
Microsoft Flight Simulator head Jorg Neumann also told the website that both Xbox Games Studios and Asobo Studio are "in it for the long run", pledging 10 years of support for the upcoming title.
Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 is expected to release, as its title suggests, at some point next year on Windows PC.
