Microsoft Flight Simulator is coming to Xbox Series X|S on July 27, 2021, as announced at the Xbox + Bethesda Game Showcase.

The game should offer "the same level of depth as the PC version," and features cool gameplay mechanics like a live weather system and 1.5 billion buildings to fly over.

The game will also include a wide selection of planes to pilot as well as over 37,000 airports to make use of.

Also, don't forget your coolest Aviators and dog tags, a Top Gun DLC is also coming to the game soon, probably around the same time Top Gun: Maverick launches in cinemas. Expect more information on this DLC soon.

Microsoft Flight Simulator will launch on July 27, 2021 on Xbox Series X|S and will be included in the Xbox Game Pass.
