Microsoft Flight Simulator is landing on the Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and the newly announced Xbox Series S, and we couldn’t be more excited.

Here’s all the details you should know so far!

Release Date

Microsoft Flight Simulator released on PC on 18 August.

As of yet, there’s no confirmed release date for Xbox consoles (be it Xbox One, Xbox Series X, or Xbox Series S).

Trailer

EXPECTATIONS ARE SKY-HIGH! If the footage is to go by, we’re in for a treat!

Price

The all-important question! This expansive game is currently checking in at £59.99/ $59.99. Not bad at all, considering the sheer scale of the title, but this price has yet to be confirmed for console release.

Xbox Game Pass

The game is one of the most successful releases in the history of Xbox Game Pass for PC.

It costs to just £3.99 / $4.99 a month on PC.

Graphics

If you’ve seen the trailer you were likely blown away with how incredible the graphics were. But can we expect these on Xbox One?

On Xbox One X, we’d like to think so! A note at the beginning of the trailer reads ‘captured in real-time 4K’, and we know that the Xbox One X is capable of running games in such resolution.

The Xbox Series S may sacrifice some firepower, but we fully expect the game to still look stunning on the other Microsoft next-gen option.

PC will no doubt be at an advantage on release, but it looks likely that we’ll see Microsoft Flight Simulator really shine on Xbox consoles as well.
