    X-Plane 12 Development Update

    Status Update

    Our next milestone is the Early Access release of X-Plane 12. As we get closer to this public stage, we wanted to share a quick look into where we are in the development process, what’s being worked on currently, and what else needs to be completed before we release.

    During Early Access:

    • Everyone will be able to purchase X-Plane 12.
    • X-Plane 12 will be available for purchase as a digital key for $59.99, just like always.
      • During Early Access, X-Plane 12 digital keys will include access to X-Plane 11 as well.
      • DVD copies of X-Plane 12 will be available later on, once X-Plane 12 is out of Early Access. These will be available from X-Plane.com in North America and by Aerosoft in Europe.
      • Early Access will also be available on Steam.

      The changes coming all appear amazing. Looking forward to this. And all personal ortho related sceneries will be seamlessly ported into the new sim.

      What remains is or might be ways to facilitate folks sharing ortho scenery work to avoid all users making their own with the tools available, it just had to be possible.

      As always, I shall wait about two years and get it at 50% discount, and after all the crying and wailing of the early access mob have died down.

      Unless of course they're clever like Microsoft and provide a cheap way (Xbox GamePass) to try it out and provide valuable feedback. But with Aerosoft involved, that is highly unlikely.

      Steam, frequent discounts. But you'll probably have to wait about two years for the big ones (40% - 50%), like with XP11. https://steamdb.info/app/269950/
