Frank Dainese and Fabio Bellini announce Cerro Torre and Fitz Roy for X-Plane

The team is already working on a new mountain scenery on the south hemisphere, in the border of Argentina and Chile, in South America.

The region will be comprised of 500 square kilometers (roughly 20 square miles – about the same size as their Matterhorn Park scenery) of mountainous terrain and will include both the Cerro Torre (3,128 meters / 10,262 feet) and the Fitz Roy (3405 meters / 11,171 feet).

As usual, both mountains are being completely rebuilt from scratch. The scenery will also include the town of El Chalten and a small fictional airfield as well as, you guessed it, several helipads.

El Chalten is a very recent town, which was founded in 1985 and has been seeing a “notable increase of mountaineering tourism, such as to be considered a mandatory destination for those who go to Patagonia”.

The release of the project is yet to be announced but it won’t happen before 2019, of course.
