release date August 18

Anyone plan to get this? This is not my type of game but it looks too beautiful to pass on. I just want to be a flying tourist.

It looks promising... I might get it at some point but may need a better graphics card.

Do the planes come with droppable bombs?

You can fly a drone over Pakistan.

This does looks sweet though, just for buzzing around your home town, etc. Will buy.

I was reading up on future plans.

Microsoft plans this to be a 10 year product. It will receive regular updates for general stuff like improving the world quality. It will also have paid DLC, with the first DLC being helicopters.

My video card kinda sucks for this so I’ll probably get in a year or two. Def looks worthy though.

My card is a 980Ti and the game settings are dialed back. It isn't full on potato mode but definitely at that end of the spectrum. If I'm at ground level any city looks like it has received major bombing.

Nvidia is supposed to have a new line up of cards coming later this year. I have been holding off on upgrading until this 2nd round of RTX as I knew the 1st round of RTX cards we already got would be a waste.

In theory, yes. I'm curious how the game is going to translate severe weather like a hurricane.

I have a 1050Ti, it runs everything sweetly, is it gonna cut it?

Can't see me getting this anytime soon to be fair, I have a fuck ton of other flight/space games I wanna check out first.

Mine is a GTX 1060.

From what I've seen if you're high up in the middle of nowhere you're fine, but if you're planning on exploring New York in high detail it's gonna suck...
