Microsoft Flight is a Free to Play PC Flight Sim. We’re in!

by on January 4, 2012 >> CESNewsPC

Microsoft has been king of flight simulators for more than a decade. Some set ups are so robust that they mimic actual cockpits, and many pilots use it to keep sharp and train. It’s simply fantastic. But now we have a free to play version coming out, which will debut at CES. Simply called Microsoft Flight the game will feature a few planes at launch with the islands of Hawaii to buzz around. We’re guessing that this game’s nature will be that it’s free to play at start, but if you want to explore more of the world you’ll simply need to buy more content. This is great because it allows players to make the game exactly what they want it to be. Want to buzz around some gorgeous islands in a small prop plane? Go for it! Want to take off in something a little more powerful and fly from China to New York? Do it! The game will launch with the Icon A5, the definitive small sport aircraft, which looks incredible as you can see in the trailers below. For the full press release and trailers click here.
