Microsoft Flight Simulator is back, and it's coming to Xbox and PC

Come fly with me.

Microsoft Flight Simulator is back - and it's coming to both Xbox and PC.

It was revealed during Xbox's E3 2019 press conference, and according to the official blurb, you can fly "light planes to wide-body jets, fly highly detailed and stunning aircraft in an incredibly realistic world".

Elsewhere, you can "create your flight plan and fly anywhere on the planet", and "njoy flying day or night and face realistic, challenging weather conditions".

It's powered by both Satellite data and Azure AI, and it's a bit of a looker - watch the trailer to see what we mean.

Microsoft Flight Simulator is out 2020, and as with everything else coming from Microsoft's first-party studios, you can play it day one as part of your Xbox Game Pass subscription.
