Microsoft Flight Simulator reaches over 10 million pilots
And 500 million flights have been flown.
Microsoft Flight Simulator is one of the most technical achievements in a long time with plenty of really cool features that lets you explore the world aviation style, with accurate weather and tons of cool features.
But it was also an entertaining game that quickly became very popular and even received quite the few GOTY awards when it was released two years ago. Since then, more and more pilots have joined the fun, and now Xbox Wire reveals that the game is now celebrating 10 million pilots. They also share some fascinating facts:
500 million flights
40 billion miles flown
Equivalent of 10 million trips around the Earth
Equivalent of 200 round trips from the Earth to the Sun
Microsoft Flight Simulator is available on Game Pass, which definitely has helped boosting the number of players, proving how a subscription service can really help a game like this, which normally would have a harder time reaching more than a core aviation interested audience.
