HALO in MSFS, the surprise?

Totally not interested in that Halo plane. I’m watching because of the WU x update. Where is it…

Honestly I was always surprised there wasn’t a pelican at launch. They always add a bit of Halo to all of their games.

Now we know why we haven’t heard about the AH DC-3 or the Milviz Beaver in a while. And why Wing42 haven’t had time to fix the Boeing 247 - he probably has his hands full with the Wright flyer.

That Halo was another trailer. See the MSFS trailer below.

And yes, apparently going to be free for all.

Dear Asobo team, leave space- and dropships to the people who are familiar with them.

Even if Chris Roberts is smiled at by many people in the scene because of his endless alpha, CGI is still several light years ahead of you in these things.

That’s a pleasant surprise. They had previously talked about helicopters and gliders being a paid expansion.

Yes, everyone agrees on that, this is fantastic.

But most of us - including me - were expecting some sort of news about the upcoming World Update X which was announced as “Big Surprise”. I mean we already knew about upcoming helicopter and glider support.

And please don’t tell me that the “Halo aircraft” is related to the upcoming World Update X :wink: (or are we getting “another planet” to fly on?)

Wow, iniBuilds giving the A310 for free is really nice. I just picked it up for $10 on sale not too long ago for XP and thought that was a really, really good deal. Wonder what it will be like in MSFS?

“Nobody hates flight sims more than flight sim fans”. If we could find a way harness the sheer miserableness into clean energy we’d be set for the future. :slight_smile:

The helo’s and gliders look great - excited for November. Awesome about the free INIBuilds A310 as well. Unexpected.
