Microsoft Flight Announced

The Age of Empires Online press release also reveals preliminary plans for Microsoft Flight, a Windows-exclusive flight simulator that's the evolution of their long-running Microsoft Flight Simulator. The Microsoft Flight Website is live, offering a teaser trailer from the game that shows a biplane flying off into the sunset (or sunrise) over a body of water. They don't offer further details at the moment, but their description indicates they plan on making the game accessible: "'Microsoft Flight' will bring a new perspective to the long-standing genre, welcoming everyone, including long-time fans, to experience the magic of flight."

Consoled MS Flightsim? Big surprise.

"Windows-exclusive"

Gameplay. And I don't trust Microsoft regarding the "exclusivity" of their titles.

Keep in mind that the MSFS series has been used by flight schools for many years, and there is an entire industry based on it (add-ons, hardware, communities, etc). Even if they did make it console-accessible, I highly doubt that they'd dumb down the Windows version of it.

Someone mentioned bush flying in Alaska? Yeah I'd VERY much love to see more of that in this version of FS.

Time to start shopping for new PC hardware...
