Top Gun Maverick DLC Releases on Microsoft Flight Simulator

For the first time ever, Microsoft has released the much-anticipated Top Gun: Maverick extension for Microsoft Flight Simulator. The Top Gun expansion was released on 25th May, after a delay due to the film’s rescheduled release date. However, to begin downloading this DLC you can install through the ‘activities’ menu when on the game. The pack is free which is fantastic, however, depending on your download speed, it may take a while for the DLC to download, however, you will not need to worry because you can occupy your time on, on this online platform, you can easily play a wide range of traditional casino games and have the possible chance to win some money, with this platform, you also have the available option to play popular themed games, like Sonic, Mario etc. However, when the download for the Top Gun DLC is complete, you will have to complete three training missions in order to know how to fly the F/A-18 Hornet.

These skills are the ability to perform a short-distance take-off using your afterburners, the ability to cross ridges without pulling negative G-forces, and the “Split-S” aerobatic manoeuvre. You will be walked through all of these, and you will be provided with a checklist that includes button prompts.

The majority of the challenges that are included in the Top Gun downloadable content are low-altitude races. In these races, you must go from a starting point to a finishing point while flying at an altitude that is as close to the ground as possible. There are 10 distinct sections that make up the course, and you are free to choose whatever direction you fly in so long as you are heading in the general direction that leads to the destination location. You earn points in each segment that are related to both the speed at which you clear the section and the average altitude that you hold throughout, and you have the option to compete against a ghost of either a default performance or your own best run. The points you earn in each segment are determined by both of these factors.

Although the underlying concept of the challenge is same throughout all of the courses, the various topography creates refreshingly distinct obstacles that seem quite different from one another. In some of them, you will spend the bulk of your run hovering just above the surface of the water, while in others, you will be soaring through valleys and just avoiding the tops of the trees that are below you. The sense of speed is very excellent indeed, and this is what makes the challenges so thrilling. As long as your personal computer (or Xbox) is adequate to the task of running Microsoft Flight Simulator at an acceptable frame rate, the sensation of speed is quite good indeed.
