Microsoft Flight Simulator is back! The reveal happened during Microsoft‘s Electronic Entertainment Expo event today in Los Angeles.

The new Flight simulator is coming to Xbox One and PC. It will also be available via Xbox Game Pass. The last full release was Flight Simulator X in 2006, which hit Steam as well in 2014. The series launched in 1982, and it was a mainstay of PC gaming for decades.

Like its predecessors, the game has you flying airplanes of different types, simulating the experience of actually flying as you soar over beautiful, realistic landscapes.
