Microsoft’s free-to-play flight simulator, Microsoft Flight, will take off from MicrosoftFlight.com on February 29.
Also available on February 29 is the Hawaiian Adventure Pack, the first expansion pack for the game. Priced at $20, the pack will add hundreds of miles of more terrain with the rest of the Hawaiian island chain (only the Big Island is included in the free-to-play version), new challenges, five new job types, 20 new missions, and a new plane (the Vans RV-6A).
While some people may gripe about “day one DLC,” you could also say that Microsoft is bringing back the old shareware model. Which is actually kind of awesome.
