Preview: Orbx Monument Valley for XP11
Orbx has released a set of breathtaking images of the upcoming Monument Valley scenery by Frank Dainese, in collaboration with development partner Fabio Bellini. Dainese brings a completely re-done Monument Valley experience for XP11, adding entirely new tech and many new features not previously seen. We've covered the project's introduction earlier, a few weeks ago here when the product was still announced under Frank's own brand.
Monument Valley for X-Plane 11 will be Frank's first product after the announcement that he will be returning to the Orbx team and platform. With X-Plane's version of Monument Valley, Dainese brings a completely re-developed Monument Valley experience for XP11, introducing brand new features and tech that's not seen before.
Monument Valley is one of the most iconic landmarks of the American West, a natural wonder situated along the Arizona/Utah border, sitting in close proximity to the Grand Canyon, and just a short flight away from other well-known destinations such as Las Vegas, Phoenix, Sedona, Telluride and Flagstaff. Known as the backdrop to many well-loved films from the Golden Era of Hollywood, the park is situated within the Navajo Nation and is visited by tens of thousands of tourists each year.
