If you haven’t heard, Microsoft will be releasing the Xbox version of Microsoft Flight Simulator on July 27th 2021 (tomorrow). Whilst we have seen some trailers and previews from Microsoft about the base platform, we have yet to see too much from third-party developers and how they will support the platform. However, that has now changed with the release of a new trailer from Orbx and their initial Xbox offering.
Produced by AviationLads, the new trailer reveals that the following products will be “optimised for Xbox Series X|S:”
- Landmarks London City
- EGLC London City Airport
- EA-7 Edgley Optica
- Landmarks Singapore City
It’s not clear if these products will be available on launch through the Microsoft Flight Simulator Marketplace or if there will be a delay. Either way, the trailer confirms they will all be “coming soon.”
Furthermore, it’s unclear if there will be any upgrade fees or cross-compatibility with the PC versions of these products. Regardless, with the release of the Xbox version of Microsoft Flight Simulator right around the corner, we shouldn’t have too long to find out. What will be exciting is the fact that we’ll be enjoying a solid 4K experience on Xbox Series X whilst flying over London, which is already a struggle for even the most powerful PCs.
