  • It's going to be amazing. The entire world is going to be rendered, 1.5 trillion tress (you be able to see all the correct trees in your back yard), all 1.5 billion buildings on earth, flight support for all 48,000 of the world's airports etc. (Presumably we will be able to land at Area 51?)
  • Time to brush up on my swimming skills
  • Microsoft should buy Asobo studios. Asobo is a great studio they worked on a few Pixar titles if I'm not wrong.
  • Yes, they did.
  • Really looking forward to this. I hope there is a simulation mode for the hardcore but also a more accessible mode for those who just want fun.
  • This is by a huge margin thr most photorealistic gane I've ever seen. It's pure graphical eye candy. Nothing I've seen in development comes anywhere close to its graphics. It's not really my thing, but for the people who like this genre, your in for a massive treat.
  • That's the great thing about Game Pass, a game like this we can just boot up for a bit and enjoy the splender of the awesome graphics and technology with little investment.
