(CNN) — Microsoft released its rebooted Flight Simulator program in August 2020, immediately wowing gamers with its hyper-realistic scenery, digitally distilled from satellite imagery.
The sim gives its users the ability to fly anywhere in the world, with our planet reconstructed with real-time weather conditions using Microsoft Bing mapping technology.
So it’s a little surprising that a huge terrifying abyss has opened up in the middle of Brazil.
The airport in question is Lagoa Nova, which in the real world is a little airstrip in Rio Grande de Norte and not an actual hellmouth.
To get to the chasm in the sim, you just need to set Lagoa Nova as your destination.
It’s already been noted that the program has some quirky dimensions.
CNN Travel reported last month that if you chart a route over the North Pole, you can fly beyond the realm of Bing Maps.
“As we flew over the North Pole we were looking at different weird map structures that may have just been glitches or may have been the video game filling in, but we didn’t know where we were,” content creator and streaming host Bruce Greene told CNN.
It’s said that when Alexander the Great saw the breadth of his empire, he wept hot tears because there were no more worlds to conquer.
Pity he didn’t have Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020.
