This week has been full of activity for the team here at Microsoft Flight Simulator. On March 21, we launched the latest major release, Sim Update 12. You can read the full release notes on our forums here.
Also on March 21, we released the next plane in our Famous Flyers series, the Antonov An-2. This versatile STOL biplane from 1947 has been a big hit with players so far, and we've really enjoyed reading your feedback and comments. Additionally, Xbox players now have access to the Antonov An-225, previously released on PC three weeks ago.
On March 22, we hosted our latest Developer Livestream on Twitch. Our panel of Jorg, Seb, Martial, and special guests answered many questions from the community, discussed ongoing development, and went into detail about upcoming new content such as World Update XIII and the first of our Expert Series of aircraft, the ATR 42-600 / 72-600 from developer Hans Hartmann.
We also welcomed Evan Reiter from the Flight Simulation Association to announce that the MSFS team will be attending this year's FlightSimExpo in Houston. If you missed the livestream, you can watch the replay video on our Twitch channel here. We will also publish it to our YouTube channel within the next few days.
During the livestream, Jorg announced a recent change to the pricing of some items in the Marketplace. As a way to show our gratitude to players who own the Deluxe or Premium Deluxe editions of Microsoft Flight Simulator, we are now happy to offer a 33% discount off the purchase of all first-party planes from the Marketplace to everyone who owns either of those editions. Thank you for your support!
