Pretty cool to know that this will be on game pass for PC and Xbox. I can't wait to crash into my own house.
I think it is just the generic standard version that will be on game pass. (the other "delux" versions will offer more aircraft and enhanced custom airports)

Looks like they had some kind of closed beta press event and now we're getting a lot more info.

So it's $60 for the game, 20 planes, and 30 airports. Why does 5 more planes and 5 more airports cost $30? I'm down with the whole dlc thing but that seems like stupid pricing.

Wait, it's only got 30 airports? How does that work? Past games I could pretty much go anywhere. It even had some dudes private airstrip he had in his backyard up by where I used to live as an "airport".

There are 30, 35, or 40 hand-crafted airports depending on which edition. The other airports are procedurally generated. There are Youtube videos of procedurally generated airports.

Sir Beregond, you can go to just about any airport that the Bing map has access to. The 30 mentioned airports have much more detail since the MS Flight Simulator team focused on them when writing the software. Apparently they have MUCH more detail since they were focused on..

I bought Forza 7 through the Microsoft Store on XBOX and found it would allow me to download and play it on PC as well. I wonder if FS2020 will allow you to do both if you buy through the store? I personally dont want to play it on XBOX, but my kid may enjoy it.

All sims are going for this model now. It starts with iRacing back when it first came out, then Train Simulator then PlaneX. We're lucky no other sim charges you a subscription to use the content you paid for tbh.

It will. This has been Microsofts thing for 4 years now. I don't think they have plans to end it either.

I don't really mind the "buy the parts you want" model, as long as they are priced accordingly. I'm going to have to play the wait and see on this one anyways, I'm not sure if my 700kbs download speed will work for this game or not.
