Flight Simulator X Lands on Steam Next Week

Dovetail Games announces that next Thursday will see the promised Steam rerelease of Flight Simulator X, the flying game sequel they licensed from Microsoft. Here's word on the re-launch, which they say will carry a "spectacular introductory price":
Microsoft Flight Simulator X: Steam Edition delivers an authentically accurate aerial experience for simulation enthusiasts and those with a passion for all things flight. Pilots can climb into the cockpits of over twenty aircraft, from commercial and fighter jets to single-engine private planes and helicopters. More than 80 missions will test players in a variety of ways, including search and rescue challenges, test pilot scenarios, races and more. The game features updated multiplayer functionality, Windows 8.1 support and over 24,000 airports, delivering a beautiful, connected world and vast horizon begging to be explored.

First released in 2006, Microsoft Flight Simulator X’s arrival on Steam marks the first exciting steps in the global licensing deal between Dovetail Games and Microsoft announced earlier this year. In addition to distributing Microsoft Flight Simulator X: Steam Edition, Dovetail Games is also working on its own original titles based on Microsoft’s flight technology, carrying on nearly three decades of tradition established by this award-winning franchise. Dovetail Games and partners will also be launching a range of add-ons for Microsoft Flight Simulator X: Steam Edition on Steam in the New Year.

Can I fly jumbo jets in to towering skyscrapers like I used to back in the day as a kid?

I don't even think you get a cracked window screen when you crash, I'd love to have a realistic physics based crash model in a flight sim but I don't think we'll ever see it from the likes of MS Flight Sim.

Still remember that bogus Direct X 10 marketing image they put out for this thing.

DX 9 vs DX 10
