prepar3d / fsx Prepar3D V4.4 Possibly Coming Q4 2018 With PBR

Recommended Posts

FSElite has obtained verified documents that suggest that Lockheed Martin are preparing to release Prepar3D V4.4 in Q4 of 2018. Even more exciting is the fact that these leaked documents point to version 4.4 being the first step to enabling Physically Based Rendering (PBR) textures in the simulator.

The leaked documentation includes an internal email conversation from an internal Lockheed Martin developer addressing to members of the Lockheed Martin team with details about the upcoming release. The internal email dated August 13th states that “Prepar3D V4.4’s beta is available now”.

Whilst the information has not been publicly confirmed by Lockheed Martin at this time, we have received confirmation about the validity of this information from a source familiar with the future of P3D.

We first discovered these details when someone posted somewhat privy details in a popular Facebook group. We then took the evidence presented in that group, asked reputable sources within the development community and asked for verification. Further details were then sent to FSElite – all of which were then verified to be accurate. As you can imagine, these people wish to remain anonymous.

This is not the first time FSElite reported on upcoming new features for Prepar3D ahead of time. We were the first to inform that version 4 would indeed be 64-bit.

Interresting, in an interview not so long ago, we heard from someone from LM that PBR would be part of a v5 version tbd in 2019, and that 4.3 would be the last of this branch. I wonder if LM changed plans...
