Microsoft Flight is Out Now and Free to Play

Not everyone loves flight sims. They can be boring, monotonous and often frustrating experiences. To people that feel that way about the genre, perhaps it’s time to walk away. To those nerds out there that love it, myself include, Microsoft Flight is now out and free to play.

Microsoft Flight is, essentially, the spiritual return of the company’s long-running flight simulator suite titled, simply, Microsoft Flight Simulator. That run of software started back in 1982 with version 1.0 and went all the way until 2006 with Flight Simulator X. Microsoft Flight is its newest successor and replacement.

As mentioned, the software is free to play. That means you’ll be able to download it if you have a PC and start playing. Like other software with similar distribution methods, you can spend real money in the game on upgrades in planes and scenery. The core experience, though, will remain free.

For those curious, here are the minimum system requirements, as per the game’s official site:

MINIMUM HARDWARE:

  • CPU: Dual Core 2.0 GHz
  • GPU: 256 MB card capable of shader 3.0 (DX 9.0c compliant)
  • HD: 10 GB hard drive space
  • OS : WinXP SP3 or newer
  • RAM: 2.0GB
Will any of the herd be downloading this and checking it out? Let us know what you think.
