Be it light planes to wide-body jets, gamers will be able to test their piloting skills against the real-time challenges. Microsoft said that with the power of satellite data and cloud-based AI, players will get to tour the entire planet that will have more than 37 thousand airports, 2 million cities, 1.5 billion buildings, real mountains, roads, trees, rivers, animals, traffic.

Microsoft says that simmers can expect the same level of depth as the PC version when the Flight Simulator arrives on Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S. Players can expect free world updates, themed DLC bundles along with other improvements available on PC.

To bring more peripherals to the Xbox Series X/S to help make the console simming experience more immersive, Microsoft said it working with third-party partners.

In August this year, Microsoft, after a 14-year hiatus, launched the latest version of Flight Simulator video game. The game allows anyone to role play as a pilot.

Players in the game can select a flight route that begins on a runway. They can achieve liftoff by gaining momentum, and once in the air, they have to balance speed and momentum while avoiding obstacles like buildings.
