The first round of reviews are out, and they're very positive. Here, we summarise everything you need to know as well as Microsoft's plan for future content.
It seems the first impressions of Flight Sim are great!
CITIES - Fly over some amazing cities including Tokyo, New York and London!
The amazing graphics and intuitive controls have provided most players with a beautiful first experience.
We hope the Simulator continues to give players an amazing platform to hone their flying skills and enjoy their experience with friends.
So far the reviews for Flight Sim have been very positive.
A lot of reviews also praise the fact that we'll be getting plenty of new content and support for the game for the next few years.
The 3D map and input is very accurate, creating some realistic and beautiful environments.
However, the mapping is sometimes innacurate making for some interesting geographic features.
Flight Simulator will continue support for community input and support.
COUNTRY - Fly around the world and travel to any country!
Before the release of Flight Sim, Microsoft started "Community Week". This involved giveaways, activities and events.
We can't wait to see what Microsoft has planned for the Community in the future! We hope areas and mods are implemented into the game with creator support.
