Just in time for the winter season in the northern hemisphere, snow has arrived in Microsoft Flight Simulator.

The latest update has arrived in Microsoft Flight Simulator, and it brings snow to the simulation title.

Most recently, VR support was added to the game, allowing you to use a variety of VR hardware, including Windows Mixed Reality headsets, as well as headsets from Oculus, Valve, and HTC.

Microsoft Flight Simulator launched for PC in August of last year. In our review, we said it was “a remarkable release fit for seasoned pilots and beginners alike.”

It now boasts over 2 million players and is coming to Xbox Series X/S this summer. The game will also be available via Xbox Game Pass on launch day.

If you are just hopping into the game after being away for a while, you should give the December 22 patch notes for update 1.12.13 a read.
