I'm guessing Acro FS uses the RF-X graphics engine, is that correct ? How demanding is it on your system compared to the RF-X Beta Update? And of course what will the price be?

The price is already public, though it doesn't show on the store page. If you search for it on Steam, the price will be displayed beside the results.

The RF interface will work.

The release date isn't set yet, but it will be very soon!

Yes, Acro FS is based on Unigine (game engine) and FlightAxis (flight physics), just like RF-X.

Acro FS is a little easier on your system than RF-X. My dev machine sees 60-80 fps at 1920x1200 on RF-X, and gets over 100fps with Acro FS.

Plan on a GTX1060 for a great 1080p monitor experience, and a GTX1080 (or 1080Ti) for a very good VR experience.

Acro FS is very smooth right out of the gate, thanks to a precompiled shader cache that we supply with the game.

From the early access description


Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?
“The price will be the same (free to play) after early access.

Looks like a very watered down version of rfx beta 1.5. Should be a free add-on for current rfx owners imho. Still, I’ll be interested to try it out!

It's a full scale simulator, not a RC simulator and it will be free to play on Steam.

I don’t know for sure but I imagine there will be a ‘ground view’. So kinda RC.

Also, I doubt that it will be free. Maybe a free early access demo?

All speculation for now. Time will tell.

It already states that it will be free to play after early access on the store page. Most likely the money will be made on the DLC aircraft and airports. There are other simulators that work this way.

I'm sure it will have a ground view, but like other full scale sims, it is pretty useless..

Here is the clip of the Store page which explains everything...

Also on my wishlist, it shows a Release date of May 22. I wonder if this is correct?

Thanks for that. Are you going to try the early access? I think I'll wait until I see some reviews. It's still not clear to me if this is going to be worthwhile or not, for me anyway.
