Having quickly gone about capturing the hearts of many simulation fans, Dovetail Games are producing further offers. With the release of Flight Sim World, the latest flight simulation release to be hitting the market, Dovetail have come up with a fine bargain for all who are already interested.

Of course, the latest release - Flight Sim World – is going to help modernize the flight simulation industry. With conventional gaming and media leaving behind the rather dated feeling old simulators, change has been required to help interest a new generation – at least in some quarters. Thanks to Flight Sim World, that’s going to be a possibility. It is, though, the natural heir to the latest Dovetail Games release in Flight School.

Having recently “retired” Flight School, Dovetail Games are offering anyone who invested in its progress previously the chance to get a copy of Flight Sim World for free!

A genuine and sincere offer to thank those who invested in the previous release, anyone who was disappointed at the end of Flight School will soon be able to continue the journey. Set for an Early Access release – and built on the foundation of community feedback – on the 18th May, Dovetail Games Flight Sim World is not far off. You won’t have too long to wait to feel the power of a 2017 flight simulator.

Having promised to offer more announcements about the upcoming simulator when they spoke about the end of Flight School, Dovetail has kept their promise to the community. As the new heads of the community, by and large, it’s going to be interesting to see how the controversial release is going to go down. Keeping their word on offers such as this fine freebie is going to be one way to go about making that possible.

While Flight School users were able to learn the basics to modern flight simulation, it looks like Flight Sim World will be more complex. With the potential for much more authentic and high-level aviation possible compared to the arguably simplistic Flight School, it’s going to be very intriguing to see what Flight School brings to the table.

Aiming to be the platform used for years to come, the significant graphical improvements seen in sneak previews can only help entice those who enjoyed Flight School to sign up. With the release not far away not, you should be sure to make the most of your free token to see just where Dovetail Games have taken their new series.

Forged on the feedback of the Flight School community and beyond, this could stand as a landmark moment in the medium to long-term future in the flight simulation community. Make sure that you’ll get the chance to utilize that offer if you made an investment in Flight School at the time.

Otherwise, you’ll need to pick up the latest release when it hits the Steam Early Access Library on the 18th May.  Flight Sim World has now been discontinued, you can read the announcement here. Whatever your decision, we’ll see you in the skies!

It's hardly a fine bargain. Flight school is about as unrealistic as it gets to flying and in fact is nothing more than vapor ware. I have no idea what on earth they where thinking with this title, but it was a critical disaster, and as in dovetail was a dead duck in an egg on arrival, like many of their failed promises.

The one thing people are not impressed with , is the quality of FSW, i don't know where editors are picking up on that its been picked up by the majority of users as positive. That simply isn't the truth, and how many of those editors in steam are not really from Dovetail? They've done this sort of thing before and they keep on doing it to big up their flop of a game.

While FSX as plenty of bugs...which could be fixed and which Microsoft wouldn't allow Dovetail to man handle for clearly obvious reasons...its the one simulator Microsoft should open up to open source development which then means all the bugs , issues and everything else can be fixed, and the latest dx 12 thrown in for good measure. The sad thing is, until companies who are solely in it for the money, and nothing else, will continue to dupe the paying public in rubbish they release.

Having tried this sim, it is in no way better than fsx and I am sorry I am with a lot of people here who truly hate their interface....trying to redesign something that didn't need to be changed...just to make it look like they where busy doing something to catch the naive out.

I think there is more than enough top quality flight sims out there right now including FSX, and at best *even^ if they get beyond early access *very unlikely given this dreadful company's record* basically they are nothing more than parasites...sucking money out of people and running to the next and so on. It also explains why the fsx steam addons are never updated...and lay their smoldering and in many cases simply never working...never receiving updates..but what do dovetail give a damn about, they are raking a tiny fortune in, from broken fsx: se dlc aircraft etc.

just beware this is entirely just another money grab by the same people. avoid it like the plague, unless you like burning your money on dead on arrival early access rubbish from this company

as I said in the beginning..hardly a great offer...when its nothing more than end of line vapor ware...that was discontinued in early the heck companies like this are allowed to do such things..well, its clear steam are just as unscrupulous too by allowing companies like this to sell anything , let alone letting them develop on their platform, its dispicable.
