The latest major Microsoft Flight Simulator update is all about the U.S. of A. The free World Update II patch is available now, and it should make flights over the United States look much better.

The company had released the "World Update I: Japan" in September that included graphical improvements across the volcanic island chain along with exciting landing challenges set at Japanese airports.

Asobo announced in a Twitch stream recently about their plans for the next update. Then we followed the twists and turns of the rather terrifying (but awesome) course of the Colorado River all the way to Glen Canyon Dam to land at Page Municipal Airport. Nevertheless, Jorg Neumann revealed the Ireland plans later. We are trying hard to get data for at least Northern Ireland, but we might as well do all of Ireland.

This is the second world update from Microsoft in its series of "World Updates" which are meant to highlight and enhance specific regions of the planet.

India's Annual Gross Domestic Product (GDP ) for July-September 2020 slowed down to 7.5 percent, government data showed on Friday. NSO data showed that agriculture continued to register positive growth in this quarter as well, at 3.4 per cent.

There's plenty more to find out in the clip above, and you can listen to what's in store for January's United Kingdom world update for yourself from around the 45:40 mark. In the previous two similar updates, the studio has revolutionized how US and Japan look from the aerial viewpoint.

In addition to VR support, the next major World Update for Microsoft Flight Simulator has been revealed.

The exciting news just keeps on coming for Microsoft Flight Simulator fans this week.
