World Update 13 is now available for MSFS, focused on Oceania and Antarctica

Microsoft Flight Simulator is taking simmers on a new journey to the furthest reaches of the globe with the release of World Update 13, which brings to life the breathtaking regions of Oceania and Antarctica. This latest update enhances the already immersive experience for MSFS users by providing stunning new landscapes, points of interest, and missions to try out.

Oceania, a vast region that includes Polynesia, Melanesia, and the Galapagos Islands, is home to remote coral islands, pristine white sand beaches, towering volcanoes, and dense rainforests. World Update 13 delivers higher resolution imagery for 13 countries and 28 non-sovereign territories, as well as improved height field data for Hawaii and handcrafted buildings for the city of Honolulu.

Meanwhile, Antarctica offers a unique flying experience for aviators with its untouched coastal and inland glaciated terrain. The update brings key regions of Antarctica to life, notably the Antarctic Peninsula, and adds several Antarctic research bases as points of interest, including McMurdo Station, Scott Base, and Davis Station.

Orbx, a partner team for this update, has created 150 points of interest across Oceania and Antarctica, such as the iconic Moai monoliths on Easter Island, the Autograph Tower in Indonesia, the Point Venus Lighthouse on Tahiti, and more. Orbx has also handcrafted over a dozen airports, catering to adventurous STOL (short take-off and landing) pilots with challenging highlands dirt airstrips in Papua New Guinea, as well as more conventional airports like Kona International Airport in Hawaii and Mataveri International Airport on Easter Island.

To help pilots explore the beauty of Oceania, Perfect Flight has developed eleven missions for World Update XIII. These missions include five Discovery Flights over locations like West Maui, Tahiti, Kiribati, Mauna Kea, and Central Java. Additionally, there are three Landing Challenges at airports like Fiji’s Nadi International Airport, Palmyra Airport on Palmyra Atoll, and Busilmin Airstrip on Papua New Guinea. Finally, three Bush Trips have been designed for New Caledonia, New Guinea, and Hawaii, offering an unforgettable experience for virtual aviators.

World Update 13: Oceania and Antarctica is now available as a free download for all Microsoft Flight Simulator owners. To access the update, ensure your simulator is updated to the latest version and download the new content pack through the Marketplace.
