Message Text: On the heels of a beta, "Microsoft Flight" will be available to download worldwide for free starting February 29, 2012, at www.microsoftflight.com.

The free version of Microsoft Flight gives players the freedom to fly the skies over the volcanic island of a Hawaii in a variety of aircraft, completing a variety of missions, testing skills in flying challenges and finding hidden aero-caches.

In addition, the Hawaiian Adventure Pack - which includes the remaining Hawaiian Islands, a new plane and 20 new missions - will be available to purchase the same day through Games for Windows?LIVE.

In addition to exploring the Big Island of Hawaii for free, users will be able to unlock access to the skies over the remaining Hawaiian Islands by purchasing the Hawaiian Adventure Pack, the first in a series of expansions for Microsoft Flight, which includes:

- Hundreds of miles to explore
- Stunning recreations of landmark features, from the breathtaking Waimea Canyon in Kaua?i to the high-rise hotels of Waikiki
- New challenges
- 20 new missions
- The Vans RV-6A, a two-seat, single-engine, low-wing homebuilt airplane made famous for its speed and maneuverability.

The Hawaiian Adventure Pack will be available via Games for Windows - LIVE for 1600 Microsoft Points.

At launch, players will have the ability to purchase two new planes:

- The Maule M-7-260C is a rugged utility aircraft that is especially adept at handling take-offs and landings on rough, unprepared surfaces. Players can enter the Maule's cockpit and take the controls to transport people and cargo to complete jobs and advance their pilot career.

- The Maule M-7-260C including a richly detailed external model and a detailed cockpit will be available via Games for Windows - LIVE for 1200 Microsoft Points.

- The North American P-51 Mustang is a historical fighter plane with strong performance characteristics, maneuverability and sharp looks. Stripped of guns and some weight, this version represents a restored Mustang that might be found at airshows today.



The North American P-51 Mustang flyable from the outside will be available via Games for Windows - LIVE for 640 Microsoft Points.

All the aircraft have been created with detailed graphics and accurate physics: Some models allow players to take the helm using accurate cockpits and master authentic piloting procedures, or they can simply use their mouse and keyboard to control any plane in an exterior view.

Microsoft has not yet provided details on the PC requirements of the new game. Let's hope that it will be hardware-friendly that the Flight Simulator X, which requires a very powerful PC in order to enjoy the game in its full potential in terms of graphics.
