Microsoft Flight Simulator

Microsoft has announced that Microsoft Flight Simulator can now be streamed via Xbox Cloud Gaming. It will be available on Xbox One and on other supported devices, powered by custom Xbox Series X hardware.

On Xbox One, players can launch the simulator through the Xbox dashboard and experience a high-fidelity experience, up to 1080p and 30fps. Players will now be able to "explore the planet from any of the supportive devices and quickly take off as there is no need to install the simulator on your hard drive". Accessing Microsoft Flight Simulator via Xbox Cloud Gaming also allows you to play the game "beyond the console" on supported mobile phones, tablets, and lower-spec PCs.

Standard controller inputs from Bluetooth controllers such as Xbox Wireless Controller for cloud gaming are also supported. The multiplayer experience for all players is similar as on the PC and Xbox Series X|S, enabling players to share the same airspace regardless of the device they are employing.

Now, players can also find it on Xbox One and supported mobile phones, tablets, and lower-spec PCs via Xbox Cloud Gaming and a Game Pass Ultimate membership. Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members can access cloud gaming in 26 supported countries.

Microsoft Flight Simulator is available for Xbox Series X|S and PC with Xbox Game Pass, PC Game Pass, Windows 10 and 11, and Steam.
