Xbox One players initially missed out on Microsoft Flight Simulator, but last-gen console owners can now access the game on their hardware. Plus, you can experience the wonders of flying anywhere you want without having to commit nearly 100 GB of storage space to install the game.
This is because Microsoft Flight Simulator is coming to Xbox Cloud Gaming through Xbox Game Pass. All Game Pass subscribers can now stream Flight Simulator in 1080p/30fps on Xbox One, as well as other devices that support Xbox Cloud Gaming like Series X|S, phones, tablets, and PCs.
Microsoft says the multiplayer experience is the same across all devices, meaning you can play with your friends no matter what hardware they are on. Plus, if you already made in-game purchases on the native Series X|S versions, those will carry over to the cloud version.
This option is also available for Series X|S owners who want to try the game without installing it. Microsoft Flight Simulator has a file size of around 97 GB, which is a hearty chunk of the built-in console storage.
That being said, Microsoft Flight Simulator is certainly worth your time. We called the game a masterpiece, saying, “It’s difficult to fully describe how amazing it feels to jump into a plane and have the freedom to fly to and from literally any place in the entire world.”
