Microsoft Flight has its landing gear deployed and is eyeing the runway. Today, Microsoft announced that Microsoft Flight will arrive for the PC on February 29.
A free-to-play flight simulator, the game is the first in the series since Microsoft Flight Simulator: X, which was released in 2006. Microsoft Flight puts players on the Big Island of Hawaii and features "hours" of free missions and other activities to partake in.
Gamers looking to fly further in Microsoft Flight will also be able to purchase additional content in the form of new planes, regions, and "customization options." Microsoft also noted that it plans to release additional content "frequently" via daily challenges and updates.
The first expansion pack for Microsoft Flight will be the $20 Hawaiian Adventure Pack, which includes new challenges, 20 new missions, and the RV-6A aircraft. Also available at launch will be two new aircraft, the Maule M-7-260C ($15) and the North American P-51 Mustang ($8).
