Just in time for the launch of Microsoft Flight Simulator on Xbox Series consoles next month, developer Asobo Studios added a few more details that gamers will appreciate. World Update V focuses on the Nordic region (especially Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden), bringing breathtaking views in a way that is already visually impressive.

A brief trailer shows the payoff of paying close attention to landscapes (so many fjords) and urban areas with detailed architecture you can walk through showing everything from ancient castles to modern stadiums, towers, and bridges. According to the team, the new zones include “100 airports and 77 carefully selected points of interest”. You can see Lego House and Frederiksborg Castle in the trailer, as well as the Arctic Cathedral and Sarek National Park.

The Xbox launch is slated for July 27, arriving after several updates to optimize the game and even reduce its staggering initial installation size. If you have a capable PC, you can install this latest update for free – it’s also localized to Swedish, Norwegian, and Finnish if you want the full Nordic experience – while Xbox One owners wait for cloud streaming to bring in premium titles later this year.
