Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X console owners can now pre-order and pre-download the Xbox version of Microsoft Flight Simulator ahead of its release next month.

The popular sim/travel video game is available in a Standard Edition, a Deluxe Edition, and a Premium Deluxe Edition. The Standard Edition comes with the base game while the Deluxe Edition also comes with an additional five aircraft and enhanced airports that feature a higher level of detail than the others located around the world in-game.

Here’s the extra content included in Microsoft Flight Simulator Deluxe Edition:

Additional Aircraft

  • Diamond Aircraft DA40-TDI
  • Diamond Aircraft DV20
  • Textron Aviation Beechcraft Baron G58

Additional Enhanced Airports

  • Amsterdam Airport Schiphol (Netherlands)
  • Cairo International Airport (Egypt)
  • Cape Town International Airport (South Africa)
  • O’Hare International Airport (USA)

Microsoft Flight Simulator Premium Deluxe Edition comes with all of the content in the Deluxe Edition plus five more additional aircraft and enhanced airports.

Unlike many of the recent Xbox video game releases, Microsoft Flight Simulator will only be playable on the current-gen Xbox Series X and S consoles. The game will support Xbox controllers, keyboard and mouse, and a variety of third-party flight controllers.

Digital pre-orders for Forza Horizon 5 also went live this week.
