Microsoft Flight Simulator Is Now Available To Pre-Download With Xbox Game Pass

The time has almost arrived, folks! As of today, Microsoft Flight Simulator is available to pre-download for Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, meaning you can install all 97GB so you're ready to play on release day.

To download it, all you need to do is head to the Xbox Game Pass app on your console, find Microsoft Flight Simulator, and hit 'Install all'. If you've already pre-loaded it in the past, it should download automatically for you.

Microsoft Flight Simulator will officially be available to play via Xbox Game Pass for Series X and Series S on Tuesday, July 27, and it released this time last year for PC. It'll also be coming to Xbox One via xCloud in the future.

Microsoft Flight Simulator is the next generation of one of the most beloved simulation franchises.
