We are so excited to bring today Microsoft Flight Simulator to Xbox Series X | S, giving aspiring pilots the opportunity to fly for the first time on a console.
From light aircraft to wide-body jets, you will put your piloting skills to the test in the face of real-time weather challenges, including wind speed and direction, temperature, humidity, rain and lightning, all in a dynamic and animated world. With the power of Bing Maps satellite data and the cloud-based artificial intelligence that Azure uses, you will enjoy traveling the world in incredible detail in more than 37 thousand airports, 2 million cities, 1.5 billion buildings. , real mountain ranges, roads, trees, rivers, animals, traffic and more. If you are a lover of simulation games, expect the same level of depth as the PC version, with the most authentic and realistic flight simulator ever created, now available to a wider audience.
Optimized to harness the power of Xbox Series X | S, Microsoft Flight Simulator provides realism, precision and authenticity of flight. Even if you are just joining the world of aviation, you can immediately enjoy the thrill of flying. Microsoft Flight Simulator on Xbox Series X | S adds new features to make the gaming experience truly accessible:
Discovery Flights: If you just join the world of Microsoft Flight Simulator, this option will allow you to experience some of the most impressive wonders of the world, including impressive places like the Great Pyramid of Giza and Mount Everest or vibrant cities like Naples and Rio de Janeiro. Get ready to fly!
World exploration improvements: We know how much you enjoy exploring the world through Microsoft Flight Simulator, that’s why we improve the experience even more. The world map now includes satellite imagery, map labels, and names of Main Points of Interest (POIs) to make exploring the world (and even finding your home) as easy as possible. We extended this capability to the flight experience itself and now you can activate POI tags during flights, so you can get an idea of the spatial relationships between cities, mountains and other landmarks.
Flight training: We significantly improved our flight training to ensure a friendlier learning curve and added a new performance evaluation system. We now have 22 training flights that will teach you the fundamentals of flying starting with basic handling, through landing and takeoff, VFR navigation and learning how to fly a passenger jet like the Airbus 320neo. We also added more contextual voiceovers to explain items and provide feedback.
Flight assistance: We integrated an extremely useful new tool called Flight Assistant that provides AI help during the flight:
- Select nearby POIs or airports and set them as your destination to get directions
- Use it to have the AI automatically land your plane
- Use it in automatic flight and anti-crash
Land anywhere: In most flight simulators, taking off and landing at an airport can be complex and intimidating for newcomers. We know that 71% of our planet is water, so we added splash options. We revamped several of our aircraft and added optional floats, skis, and a ‘big tire’ feature so you can land almost anywhere.
Microsoft Flight Simulator on Xbox Series X | S is the most accessible installment to date with the addition of Screen Narrator and new features like Discovery Flights, all new Scored Training Flights, improved landing gear and more for you to experience the thrill of flying.
The launch of Microsoft Flight Simulator on PC last year was just the beginning of our journey to make the best simulation possible. We will continue to add free world updates (Japan, the United States, France, Benelux, the United Kingdom and Ireland and the Nordic countries so far, with many more to come), free simulation updates, themed DLC packs, and incredibly realistic aircraft. On Xbox Series X | S you can also enjoy these updates on the console. Heaven is calling you!
