Microsoft have announced that Microsoft Flight Simulator is now available on the Xbox Cloud Gaming platform enabling people to experience the sim on a range of supported devices through the service. As the headline suggests, you can fly through the clouds in Microsoft Flight Simulator while playing on ‘the cloud’ opening the door to more new simmers.
How does this work?
Powered by custom Xbox Series X hardware, Microsoft is making Microsoft Flight Simulator available on a wide range of supported Xbox Cloud Gaming devices. That means that you’ll be able to play the sim on phones, tablets, older PC’s and on the Xbox Series One that support the service.
Standard inputs from Bluetooth controllers are supported including the Xbox Wireless Controller. The multiplayer experience is also the same as on the other devices so you can link up with friends via this service as well. The service is reportedly able to offer 1080p resolution at 30fps.
The service is supported in 26 countries and people with the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate membership can visit the Xbox Cloud Gaming (beta) website (Note: The link is currently down) to get more information on how to set this up.
