X-Plane 12 was announced at this year’s FlightSimExpo event held in San Diego, United States with high anticipation. In the hour-long seminar held by the team from Laminar Research, much information was shared on the technical aspect of the new platform and what will it offer. However, not much was disclosed in regards to third-party addons support and compatibility.

Many community members are curious whether will the products they have purchased for X-Plane 11 in the past work with X-Plane 12 and/or whether will there be an upgrade fee available from the developers, or there will be a need to buy the product for the full price again.

At FSNews, we will summarize all statements from developers in the X-Plane community about the new platform on this dedicated page accessible from the navigation bar. You can always check above when was the page last time updated.
