seems it’s not really free…

but the Reno Air Races: Expansion Pack at 20$ for 4 planes seems a fair bundle priced


Nah, i see now, it is in the GOTY update, not the Reno one…

Will games of the year, Reno and sim update 7 be released togather?

They will all be released on the same day, yes! GOTY = SU7.


I’m so excited thank you for the information Jayne.

So other than extra paint jobs, what does the $60 Reno option include? Seems a bit ambiguous.

I feel like the is warrants a post by itself, along with a detailed change log.

Release notes will be available as usual close or on the date of release, or during the pre-release testing for Sim Update 7.

I thought Reno Air Racing was going to be a free update :frowning:


Game of the Year is a free update, Reno is a $20 and $60 pricepoint. Though we announced them at the same time, they are two different products! GOTY and Reno are not the same thing.


I am confused. Are the liveries the only difference in the $40 price difference? So, basically if I don’t care about liveries, the $20 version is all I need? Or are there actual differences besides paint jobs?


My word - the details on each aircraft! The modelling team have outdone themselves…
