QuoteUndead publisher MicroProse announces it has acquired the rights to the Falcon series of combat flight simulators. These were quite a big deal in their day, which unfortunately was during the last century, as the last installment in the series was Falcon 4.0 in 1998. The plan is to create new games based on the license: "MicroProse is thrilled to continue the Falcon franchise with new products in the future, building on the legacy of this iconic series." In the meantime, the previous Falcon games are now available at a discount. You can find Falcon on Steam, Falcon A.T. on Steam, Falcon Gold on Steam, and Falcon 4.0 on Steam, each at 20% off. These games are also bundled together in The Falcon Collection on GOG.com* and Steam with an even larger discount. The announcement also acknowledges the volunteer work of Benchmark Sims in supporting Falcon 4.0 with a huge community modification, saying this will receive cooperation and support going forward. Here's a Falcon BMS version 4.37 trailer showing the latest version of the mod, which includes VR support.https://www.bluesnews.com/s/259349/falcon-series-flies-again-at-microprose
