X-Plane 7.0 Released
9:30 AM | Tim Morgan | Comment on this story

After a beta period spanning over a month, Laminar Research has declared version 7.0 of X-Plane, its flagship flight simulator, fit for release. Release candidate four (RC-4) has been chosen as the release version, so those who have already downloaded it will not be needing an update.

X-Plane 7 introduces a spade of new features, from volumetric clouds to enhanced flight modeling and graphics improvements. The entire list can be found on X-Plane's demo/order web page. The demo allows six minutes of flight, and those who enjoy the game can purchase the full version, as well as scenery packs covering Earth and Mars.

X-Plane is an incredibly versatile flight simulator allowing owners to fly aircraft ranging from the docile to the exotic in situations other flight simulators never touch. Laminar Research's trademark product is known for its accurate simulation of the X-15 and other experimental aircraft, as well as its unique outer-space and Mars flight modeling.
