Microsoft Flight Simulator will feature Mods: Add-Ons, User-Generated Content, Beta, Sign Up & More

Microsoft Flight Simulator will finally be getting releasing a closed beta for their loyal following, signifying that the end is in sight.

The title represents Redmond’s greatly-anticipated return to the genre after almost one decade away, and it will release later this year.

With Microsoft Flight Simulator set to host its own marketplace for third-party content, we can expect it to sell user-generated content and mods!

Mods & Community Content

Microsoft has employed an open approach to creating its next Flight Simulator, which will include day-one support for third-party modding.

According to a reliable source for previous Microsoft leaks on Twitter, Flight Simulator will feature an aptly-named “Flight Marketplace,”

The marketplace will feature free and paid community content, with purchases being made using “Flight Coins” rather than real currency.

We saw similar happen “Minecraft Marketplace” hosting community creations that were bought with “Minecraft Coins”.

This is just a small glimpse into the future of the upcoming simulator, alongside the imminent release of the beta build.

Closed Beta

We haven’t got an exact date for the closed beta yet, but Microsoft and Asobo announced in their latest blog post that a release date will be announced on 9 July.
