Xbox Game Pass

The game’s Beta will be coming to Xbox Game Pass.

It costs just £7.99 / $9.99 a month on Console, with the PC version currently on offer for just £3.99 / $4.99 a month.

Xbox Game Pass Ultimate allows you to play across both PC and Console and includes Xbox Live Gold. It costs £10.99 / $14.99 a month.


If you’ve seen the trailer you were likely blown away with how incredible the graphics were. But can we expect these on Xbox One?

On Xbox One X, we’d like to think so! A note at the beginning of the trailer reads ‘captured in real-time 4K’, and we know that the Xbox One X is capable of running games in such resolution.

PC will no doubt be at an advantage on release, but it looks likely that we’ll see Microsoft Flight Simulator really shine of the Xbox One.
