Microsoft is giving players the chance to experience the incredibly popular, decade-spanning Microsoft Flight Simulator series in a new free-to-play online game, Microsoft Flight, in the near future. Though no exact date has been given, the title has been in the works for roughly a year now and can be expected sometime in 2012.
This time, players will be limited to exploring the island of Hawai’i from some of the most iconic aircraft ever to take to the air. However, Microsoft has also said that there will be additional content available for purchase, such as new regions or additional aircraft.
Microsoft Flight will also feature integration through Games for Windows Live, letting you connect and fly with friends, keep track of achievements and more!
