Microsoft Flight Simulator is coming to Steam

Day and date release in August.

Microsoft Flight Simulator is coming to Steam, with all versions of the forthcoming game now live to pre-order and with a day and date launch with the Microsoft Store version due on August 18th.

Game Pass owners will of course get the base version of Microsoft Flight Simulator for free, with the option to then upgrade to the deluxe or premium editions where you'll have access to more craft and more 'premium' versions of airports.

The news comes as Microsoft Flight Simulator enters a closed beta prior to its launch next month. VR support was today confirmed for post-launch, and we've recently been able to spend a fair amount of time with the impressive sim.
