Microsoft Flight Simulator is getting a GOTY edition on Game Pass

Microsoft Flight Simulator has a new Game of the Year edition coming to Xbox Series X/S, Windows, and Steam on November 18. This new update of the game brings a lot of new content to Flight Simulator along with all content updates since its launch in 2020.

Microsoft Flight Simulator: Game of the Year Edition also improves upon the title’s previous experience with five new planes and eight more handcrafted airports. New missions, tutorials, photogrammetric cities, and other features (including an updated weather system and developer mode replay system) are also being implemented.

The game adds the Boeing F/A-18 Super Hornet, VoloCity, Pilatus PC-6 Porter, CubCrafters NX Cub, and Aviat Pitts Special S1S as aircraft options. The new missions include more of the recently introduced Discovery Flights in new locations such as Singapore, Mount Cook and Monument Valley. In a blog post, Microsoft notes that it is adding “information” about 545 airports in the United States that were previously missing from the game. It is unclear what exactly that means.

This new edition will be available on Xbox Series X/S, Steam and Windows through purchase or a Game Pass subscription. That shows that Microsoft is doubling down on its commitment to launch all first-party games on the service. For those who have already bought the previous version of Flight Simulator, this Game of the Year update is completely free to download.

Microsoft Flight Simulator is currently available on Xbox Series X/S and Windows 10/11 with Xbox Game Pass and Steam. The Game of the Year edition is coming to those same marketplaces on November 18, 2021, as well as Xbox and PC Game Pass.
