Microsoft Flight Simulator X: Steam Edition will be getting a new DLC pack this February. Developers Dovetail Games have announced that the upcoming content will be the first of the four planned DLC’s for the game.

According to a press release, the first DLC pack, dubbed ‘Dangerous Approaches’, will contain 20 new missions which will span across a variety of locations from around the globe. These missions will include a variety of scenarios like transporting medical supplies in Greenland, to picking up mountaineers around Mt. Everest. The difficulty of these missions will also vary depending on the Aircraft the player chooses. Here is Dovetail’s description of the DLC pack:

“Can you land a Boeing 747 in a major thunderstorm over Hong Kong? Do you have the skills to collect intrepid mountaineers from the Everest base camp? Can you fly through the majestic Sierra Nevada range or transport medical supplies through a snowstorm in the icy wastes of Greenland? Can you navigate your way across the blustery Orkney Islands as rain lashes your cockpit? If that is too cold for you then turn up the heat and fly the notorious Caribbean beach approach in to St Maarten.”

Dovetail Games have revealed that the Dangerous Approaches DLC pack will be releasing sometime in mid-February, though they are yet to announce a price for the pack. Players can expect the other three DLC’s to arrive over the next few months.

Microsoft Flight Simulator X is part of the long-running Microsoft Flight Simulator series which has garnered a large loyal player base since its introduction years ago. The game released back in 2006 for the PC and was generally well received by critics. It re-released for Steam on December 18th and can now be purchased via the Steam Store.
