    Thanks Steve, I just spotted the news myself on Steam. Looks like the Premium Deluxe version is the one to go for, whenever it becomes available. I wonder if we'll be able to upgrade from Standard to Deluxe and then Premium Deluxe as they are released, and how much the upgrades will cost?

    I’ve just placed my order for the Premium Deluxe. I guess I can say that I’ve been an Alpha tester now, but like the rest of us, I wasn’t expecting this news just yet!
    Not sure about upgrading from one version to another. I suppose they may let you upgrade with it being digital content.
    They also say you can order it on a disc.. how many discs will you need? Lol

    Regards
    Steve

    That's earlier than I expected, but good to here we don't have much longer to wait.

    There's more details in the pre-order FAQ.

    The disc version likely only includes the offline scenery, so probably not too many, provided they go with Blu-ray.

    I've also pre-ordered Premium Deluxe and a new 4k monitor - I see that there are options for upgrading from Standard to Deluxe and Premium Deluxe, but I can't see any prices.

    Has anyone seen confirmation of a off-line mode?

    I have a feeling it's going to be on-line to do anything

    Is that to use with your oculus rift?

    "It’s certainly—and I quote head of Microsoft Flight Simulator Jörg Neumann—a "high priority" for the team, following fan feedback and the common assumption that there’d be full VR support based on the reveal trailer.

    VR at launch can’t be guaranteed though, says Neumann. The team is currently working on its implementation though, so it seems like a when, rather than an if."

    Yes, they have confirmed an offline mode in one of the Discovery Episodes.
