After many months of discussion we can now officially advise that SIM720 is coming to FSX Steam Edition


SIM720 Would like to share the following Press release from Dovetail Games.

Working with first-class third-party developers Dovetail Games is delighted to announce that it is working with a number of quality third party developers and publishers. Following a very successful launch in December 2014, the company is committed to bringing players of FSX: Steam Edition a wide variety of immersive content. This will be combination of both brand new content, as illustrated by the announcements of the mission packs created by Jane Whittaker, and also the best of the existing content which has been available for previous iterations of the game.


“We’ve been humbled and gratified to see so many of the key names in the FSX developer community embrace our entry into the market with FSX: Steam Edition, and agree to work with us in providing their catalogue of products to our shared consumers through Steam. We have plans in place to be able to really ramp the content portfolio in the coming weeks and months, which includes the release of original content as well as existing offerings. It’s an exciting time for the whole flight simulation community and we’re keen to work with both developers and consumers to ensure we bring the best possible mix of content to market.”
Nicholas Rooke
Head of Third Party, Dovetail Games


Most recently, Dovetail has cemented partnerships with Just Flight, Carenado, Alabeo, Aerosoft, Wilco Publishing, REX, IRIS Flight Simulation Software, SIM720 Limited, A2A Simulations, and FSAddOn Publishing.


The companies below were happy to share these comments, which may be published in any coverage on this subject.


‘It is fantastic news for the flight sim community, that FSX is now also available to the Steam community too. That is over 100 million potential flight simmers! Dovetail have built an excellent train sim community and as a developer and publisher of flight sim content, we look forward to working with them.’
Andy Payne
CEO, Just Flight


'The team at REX Game Studios is extremely honoured to be partnering with Dovetail Games to provide the highest quality third-party environmental content for Microsoft's Flight Simulator: Steam Edition. REX Game Studios considers it a privilege to share in this partnership with Dovetail in taking flight simulation to the next level.’
