The delayed Top Gun content for Microsoft Flight Simulator has finally found a new release date. What to take for Tom Cruise for a moment.
French development studio Asobo has finally shared a release date for the previously delayed Top Gun expansion for Microsoft Flight Simulator. Indeed, the free update must now arrive may 25.
Tom Cruise’s plane in Flight Simulator
This Top Gun content for Flight Simulator was originally supposed to be released last November with the next Top Gun: Maverick movie, but the movie itself was delayed by Paramount Pictures… So we can better understand the decision of the delay.
Note however that Asobo has not yet specified what Flight Simulator players will be able to find in terms of content stricto-sensu. We only know that we should be able to fly the F/A-18 Hornet Navy from the firm of McDonnell Douglas. The multi-role aircraft thus replaces the F-14 Tomcat of the 1986 film.
How to see the stars
1950 km/h speed, 2000 km range, 15,000 m/min climbing speed. In short, enough to bring a little punch to Microsoft’s simulation title. Note that this is not the first Flight Simulator jet, far from it, since we can already fly the Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor among other things.
Surprise (or not) the movie Top Gun: Maverick will also be released on May 25, 2022. It’s a safe bet that the film will bring a lot of people to the game to test the new content.
