We now know when we can get our hands on Microsoft Flight Simulator.

Along with the release date, pre-orders are open and we’ve seen a brand new trailer.

New Trailer

The pre-order launch trailer is simply stunning.

Loads of iconic locations can be seen in the trailer, including Chirst The Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and the world’s tallest building, The Burj Khalifa in Dubai, UAE.

It’s safe to say it’s one of the best looking games we’ve ever seen.

This was the trailer revealing MFS at XO19.

Scenic landscapes were shown off, whetting the appetite for the Microsoft exclusive.

Beta

A closed beta is coming in late July, which will allow MFS “Insiders” the chance to get their hands on close to a final version of the game.
