Microsoft: new Flight Simulator supports third-party content

Microsoft confirms new Flight Simulator supports third-party and community-created content

Microsoft blew gamers away with its surprise reveal of a new Flight Simulator game at E3 2019, which is due out on both the PC and Xbox One in 2020 and now the company has confirmed some great news.

Flight Simulator will work with third-party content as well as community-created add ons, with Microsoft saying it is aware of the issues surrounding the current ecosystem and that the team is working on it. Microsoft has said they want to work closely with the community during the development of Flight Simulator, adding: "Whatever your abilities are, if you want to fly, we are going to do whatever we can to make that happen. Yoke and pedals, mouse and keyboard, controller, etc. No pilot should be left behind".

The company has promised that we'll hear more about Flight Simulator in the coming months, with updates to the preview build as well as insider programs kicking off in August. If you're a Flight Simulator fan, you'll want to keep on top of this news -- as the game simply looks freaking incredible. Day one for me on a big screen TV and kick ass gaming PC.
