Microsoft Flight Simulator Will Be 30FPS On Xbox Series X, Confirms Asobo

Microsoft Flight Simulator finally received its official July 27 release date for Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S yesterday as part of Xbox's E3 2021 Showcase, and it's been confirmed that the game will run at 30fps on the consoles.

It's an unsurprising revelation considering the game places high demands on PCs in its current state, but interestingly, it will feature the ability to go above 30fps if your TV or similar display supports variable refresh rates.

It might sound disappointing that the game can only run at 30fps even on Series X, but keep in mind that Flight Sim is a pretty slow-paced title, so the difference between 30 and 60fps isn't as pronounced as something like Forza Horizon.

If you're eager to play Microsoft Flight Simulator as soon as it arrives on Xbox Game Pass in July, you can "pre-install" the game now via the service, although it's currently just a placeholder until the full game gets uploaded to the server.
