Commercial Simulation Systems oznámil vydání velké aktualizace pro xEnviro s označením xEnviro 1.1

Jde o obsáhlý update a přidává několik novinek a oprav. Především jde o nové volumetrické mrakyk dynamickou sněhovou pokrývku, atmosferické efekty, mokrá přistávací dráha, sníh na skle letounu, dešťové efekty a vylepšený “low-level haze”.

xEnviro je dostupný na za $69.90 (approx. £55/€62).
