Microsoft Flight Simulator is landing on Xbox Series X / S consoles on July 27th. Available on Xbox Game Pass, it’s the first next-gen-exclusive Xbox Game Studios title as Microsoft Flight Simulator isn’t launching on Xbox One. Microsoft revealed a gameplay trailer for Flight Simulator on Xbox Series X today, and it looks very much like the PC version running in 4K.
How well the game performs on the Xbox Series X / S may rely upon developers Asobo Studio moving Flight Simulator over to DirectX 12. This work has been in progress for a while now, and it should include big performance improvements on the PC side, too. Microsoft Flight Simulator is notoriously CPU and GPU intensive at 4K ultra settings, with even the latest processors and GPUs struggle to hit 60fps.
