Microsoft Flight Finally Coming This Spring


Microsoft Flight, the successor to the legendary Microsoft Flight Simulator "game", is coming this Spring.

Microsoft Flight will be available as a free download this spring, giving players the freedom to fly the skies over the Big Island of Hawaii, complete a variety of missions, test their skills in flying challenges, or find hidden aerocaches on the island.

Microsoft claims that in Microsoft Flight, players view the world from above in a realistic representation of the earth, complete with region-specific weather patterns, foliage, terrain and landmarks. Players will be able to choose to take the helm using highly rendered cockpits and authentic piloting procedures, or simply use their mouse and keyboard to control the plane in an exterior view. More experienced players can tailor the flight controls to match their skill level.

Players who sign in to their Games for Windows LIVE account will automatically receive additional free content, including the legendary Boeing Stearman plane, supplementary missions, and access to Achievements and an Online Pilot Profile. Those looking to deepen their experience can purchase and download additional content that adds new aircraft, regions and customization options. The frequently released new content for Microsoft Flight includes daily aerocache challenges and updates that make every flight unique and fun.

Microsoft Studios worked with the personal airplane manufacturing team at ICON Aircraft to give aviation fans the exclusive opportunity to fly the all-new ICON A5 before real-world production starts at the end of 2012. Designed by the aeronautical engineers behind the Voyager spaceship, SpaceShipOne, and Virgin Galatic's SpaceShipTwo, the ICON A5 is the "jet ski for the skies," a high-wing amphibious monoplane with a carbon fiber airframe and a comfortable, automobile-inspired cockpit with space for two. The ICON A5 will be the first aircraft available to players for free in Microsoft Flight.



Microsoft has not provided details on the PC hardware requirements of the new game.

You can try Microsoft Flight by applying for the closed beta at: https://connect.microsoft.com/site1134/InvitationUse.aspx?ProgramID=6087&InvitationID=FLY-BRQX-BXTB.
