Flight simmers love to know release dates, but when that isn’t enough, we also love to know the exact time something also releases. Of course, that is very true for the upcoming Microsoft Flight Simulator. Microsoft and Asobo clearly have heard you and provided a rundown of exactly what time you can expect to be able to download the new simulator to your system. Whilst the official release date is August 18th 2020, some people will be able to get their hands on the simulator slightly ahead of time.
If you pre-ordered your copy of the simulator on Steam, you will be able to unlock and download from 04:00 UTC ( August 18, 12:00am EST), but if you pre-ordered via the Microsoft Store, you will have to check out down below to see when you can unlock your copy of the simulator.
If you have a physical copy coming to you, just hope your local delivery service wake up early tomorrow.
Come back soon to FSElite for our full review on Microsoft Flight Simulator.
