The development team behind the revived Microsoft Flight Simulator has just dropped its final free content update for 2023. This time, the update will increase the graphical detail of five cities in Europe.

Microsoft and its partners at Bing Maps and Vexcel produced five five exemplary urban regions throughout Europe for this update: The Hague (Netherlands), Brussels (Belgium), Košice (Slovakia), Zagreb (Croatia), and Cádiz (Spain). Each was produced in the highest visual fidelity using the latest geographic information and TIN (triangulated irregular network) surface modeling.

This is the fifth city update that the Microsoft Flight Simulator team has released for the game since it launched. It's now available for free for sim pilots people who have version and above.

In addition, the sim has added a new plane to the in-game Marketplace. It's the Cessna T207A Turbo Stationair single-engine plane, and it may be one of history's most recognizable small planes. Microsoft says:

It is a turbocharged variant of the model 207, a proven utility aircraft known for its exceptional short field performance and bush flying capabilities. The T207A Turbo Stationair, which seats up to eight including pilot(s), earned the status of legend due to its turbo-charged power and ability to deftly handle even the toughest unimproved airstrips.
