MSFS available for preorders. Releasing August 18th!

Recommended Posts

On topic: I haven't ordered on MS Store before. What will happen when this is released and I have pre-ordered (assuming it's the same process as for their other products)? Will I get an e-mail telling me my product is ready to install or do I need to log into their store to keep up on the status?


i7 8700K @4Ghz, GTX1070, 32GB RAM, 2K display. Alpha Yoke, CH Pedals and Throttle Quadrant.

Further to my Post on the 08/10/20, I received the key from CD Keys at 10.15 on the 18th August and downloaded it without any problems; it took most of the day though but that is not down to them.

I have to say that CD Keys gave no instructions on how to download despite them having a box on their website which was empty when opened but fortunately my friend who received his as well helped me otherwise I would be struggling as I don't download games normally.

I would describe FS2020 as 'awesome' as some people in the world say. It is such a massive advance in previous flight sims; but setting up controls needs to be improved; especially toggling from internal to external views and panning around. I haven't succeeded yet in panning around externally with the hat switch but have managed to get views at 90 degrees i.e. front, side and rear. I imagine that is where the drone settings come in. If anyone has any info of this I will be pleased to receive them. As the scenery is stunning, this is an important feature. It was so easy in FSX.

Overall, I am extremely pleased with my purchase; the developers have done a superb job.
