Microsoft Flight Simulator is a flight simulator developed by Asobo Studio and published by Xbox Game Studios for Microsoft Windows and Xbox Series X. It was released on August 18, 2020 for Microsoft Windows. It is the eleventh major entry in the Microsoft Flight Simulator series, preceded by Flight Simulator X.
We are pleased to announce that we are preparing a few surprises alongside the VR update launching on December 22.
Everyone will receive a unique Microsoft Flight Simulator-themed livery for the entire launch plane fleet and simmers will be able to fly with the same cute dog-themed liveries that Rufus and Sam flew in their Pitts Special. Finally, given the time of year, the update will add real-time snow and true-to-life ice coverage to the entire planet.
In case you are unfamiliar, Neumann referred to a 2020 Microsoft holiday commercial that featured dogs named Rufus and Sam.
The VR component of the update includes support for headsets from Oculus and Valve. VR will be offered in-menu alongside the simulator itself.
Microsoft Flight Simulator is available on Windows PC. An Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S version is planned for 2021.
