During their presentation at E3 2021, Microsoft and Asobo Studio showed off the first look at Microsoft Flight Simulator for the Xbox Series X|S. This sim has been available for a little while now on PC but it's finally making the leap to the Xbox platform on July 27, 2021.

This release will only be for the Series X|S, but will be available to those with Xbox Game Pass. Microsoft says that you can pre-order and even pre-install the game now on your console in preparation for next month's release. Though the download size was recently reduced, it's still going to be a fairly hefty download, so you might as well start now.

Microsoft Flight Simulator retails for $59.99 for the regular version, $89.99 for the Deluxe Edition, and $119.99 for the Premium Deluxe Edition.
