Microsoft Flight Simulator Coming to Steam, Getting VR

In a post to Xbox Wire, Microsoft reveals the new edition of Microsoft Flight Simulator will launch on Steam on August 18th with TrackIR support. They also say they will be fulfilling the request for virtual reality support with a free update later this year to support the upcoming HP Reverb G2 headset. Here's the flight plan:
In addition to availability on Windows 10 and Xbox Game Pass for PC (Xbox Game Pass for PC is currently in Beta), Microsoft Flight Simulator will also be coming to Steam on August 18. We are thrilled to announce that Steam pre-orders for the Standard, Deluxe, and Premium Deluxe editions of Microsoft Flight Simulator start today!

Listening to the community has been a priority for the development team since the announcement of Microsoft Flight Simulator in June 2019. Two of the most requested features we’ve been hearing about from the Community are TrackIR and VR support. Today we are excited to announce that Microsoft Flight Simulator will have TrackIR support available on day one, and VR support will be available later this year in time for the launch of the HP Reverb G2!
