Get Flight Unlimited 2K16 for Free

The Microsoft Store is currently offering Flight Unlimited 2K16 for free, with the 100% discount available for the next five days (thanks DSOGaming). This is the PC port of what was originally an iOS/Android game, as is only for Windows 10 users. It offers graphics that are alternately described as Ultra HD, 4K, and HD, but the game's mobile roots may help explain its mixed reviews. Here's a feature list:

Features

  • Ultra HD Satellite Imagery covering over 800 SQ Miles of the Bay Area, Switzerland, and Las Vegas
  • 4K HD Cockpits for each aircraft modeled from the ground up
  • Campaign mode with GTA style missions
  • HD Volumetric 3D Clouds
  • 24 Hour Day/Night Cycle
  • Weather effects including sun, clouds, fog, rain, and storms
  • Trigger failures such as engine trouble and detached wings
  • 14 aircraft each modeled with accurate flight physics. New aircraft released weekly.
  • Landmarks such as Alcatraz, the Golden Gate Bridge, AT&T Park, Oracle Arena, Las Vegas Hotels, and more

The 6th commandment of internet trolling is...

"Never -EVER- squander a chance to take a big old dump on Microsoft when the opportunity presents itself"

See. Since the MS store was mentioned in the newsbit it was mandatory (m-a-n-d-a-t-o-r-y!!!) to troll Microshit. Not my fault!
Gotta agree w/this commandment. It was on the original tablets before moses accidentally shattered them.

Microshit should be sued to hell and back for tainting the legendary Flight Unlimited name with this shitfest.

Also lol @ Windows store. Uninstalled and never to be seen again, fuckers.

When CBS airs a movie you dislike, so you threatened to sue them?

Or when GoG offers a free game you hate?

Microsoft didn't make this, it's just sold on their store. This isn't hard. Stop constantly being in a state of extremely aggravated ignorance.

I really liked the original Flight Unlimited. I remember being so amazed how realistic it looked (at the time).

One thing I always remember when I think about that game is on the ground there was a machine that said Choke on it instead of Coke. I always thought that was funny. Choke!

Not having W10 installed made this a no brainer.

*captured at 60fps, game barely reaches 20*

*fires in engines sound like a nice, quiet nap next to the camp fire*

*loads up X-Plane 11 instead...then reinstalls FSX and loses six hours while looking for interesting mods*

I 'membered the original Flight Unlimited being a showcase title back in the day. This... I'd feel ashamed to have it in my account.

I can just fire up Google Earth and get my flying in rather than waste my time downloading this.
