heritage-valor-collectionMicroProse, the legendary game developer renowned for classics like Falcon and B-17 The Mighty Eighth, is thrilled to announce the development of the Heritage Valor Collection, a series of high-quality add-ons for Microsoft Flight Simulator (MSFS) 2020 and the upcoming Microsoft Flight Simulator 2024.

The Heritage Valor Collection is meticulously crafted around a WWII theme, offering virtual pilots an immersive experience with historically accurate aircraft. The inaugural product in this exciting new collection will be the B-17 Flying Fortress – The Queen.

The B-17 Flying Fortress – The Queen will feature a late-1942 B-17G model, one of the most advanced iterations of the iconic Flying Fortress, which played a crucial role in the European theater. Enthusiasts and virtual aviators alike will have the opportunity to pilot this legendary aircraft across the virtual skies.

The B-17G is being developed by a committed team, focused on bringing this venerable aircraft to Microsoft Flight Simulator with exceptional detail and historical accuracy, offering virtual pilots a fully immersive experience.

We are incredibly proud to bring the Heritage Valor Collection to the flight simulation community,” said David Lagettie, CEO of MicroProse. “Our goal is to deliver an unparalleled level of authenticity and detail, allowing users to experience the greatness and power of these historic aircraft.”

Early list of features

  • Meticulously accurate model and textures, both interior and exterior, representing a late-1942 B-17G
  • Authentic sound effects recorded from a real B-17
  • Multiple liveries available
  • Realistic flight model developed based on aircraft manuals and extensive documentation
  • The pursue for realism

    Developing these aircraft is a challenging endeavor due to the numerous variations, even within the same block or sub-version of the aircraft. Accurate references are often difficult to find, as even museum-preserved aircraft don’t fully capture their historical authenticity,” said Sérgio Costa, Project Development Manager at MicroProse and head of the Heritage Valor Collection line of products.

    Sérgio added, “We have been collaborating closely with consultants to enhance visual realism and access various resources that aid in fine-tuning the flight model and systems.”
