Microsoft Flight Simulator Confirms Support For TrackIR and VR

Microsoft Flight Simulator (2020) is coming out soon, and has now confirmed two new hardware features flight sim goers would love.

The first is the support of TrackIR. It’s a head tracking solution that enables camera look by tracking your eye. No mouse needed. This will arrive on launch.

The other is VR support. This won’t arrive on launch, but expected to arrive later this year as a free update. Microsoft specifically mentions the support for the HP Reverb G2, HP’s new VR headset created in collaboration with Microsoft and Valve. Though it seems it should support other VR headsets as well.

Expect to see various other peripheral support coming to Microsoft Flight Simulator. Honeycomb’s Bravo Throttle Quadrant and Thrustmaster’s new TCA Sidestick and Quadrant Airbus edition peripherals have confirmed to be supported for the game.

Microsoft Flight Simulator is coming out on August 18 for PC (Steam, Microsoft Store), and will be included in Xbox Game Pass For PC.
