I'd love to preorder it but I would like to know more first. What's included with the release version other than planes and scenery: live weather, charts, multiplayer? Some, all, none of the above? If I buy the base version then what appears at EGLL or EHAM, some kind of low-res default? Nothing at all? The original Fairey Aviation layout circa 1944 with 4 grass runways?

I know we all "know" the answers on here but the Xbox page is very light on detail.

Seriously don't play those mental games with yourself.  You just buy Premium Deluxe, simple.  Otherwise you will regret it later.

Does this mean with pre ordering you can download the beta today?

Start preparing for take-off.  Xbox Game Studios and Asobo Studio are thrilled to announce that Microsoft Flight Simulator launches on August 18, and you can pre-order on Windows 10* or pre-install with Xbox Game Pass for PC (Beta) today. 

No, it means that with the Xbox Game Pass you can start pre-downloading the game today, so that you can play it as soon as it's released.

No. You will be able to download the final version. But you won’t be able to use it. Only on the 07/18 you will be able to run it. And probably there will be an update for the release day, with fixes/improvements. That’s how it works on other games.

The "beta" in this sentence is referring to Gamepass on PC, It's still in beta.

The list of airports makes me think prem version.

P3D v5 and MSFS. How nice it will be to have two sims to enjoy. Shock horror lol

Interesting. Is there a list of the highly detailed airports included with each version?

Never mind: Found it... 🙂

Btw - no VR and no Track IR :wacko: also.

So no pre order from my side.

Pre-order a Homecockpit with 210° view aswell...and then there is no need for VR 😉😜

wow fantastic news.

All the haters are going to tell you this is not the forum lol, the same people who said it would not come this year lol to them all.

Where are these imaginary "haters"? Why does this have to be a divisive thing? What is the point of making up some mythical conflict, and then laughing at these imaginary people? 

A new sim is an exciting thing. Yes, this is not the forum for ongoing discussions about MSFS, though the release date is significant enough to be posted here. 

I really hope that we're not now going to have a month+ of people crowing about how bad/dead Prepar3d is, and how much better MSFS is going to be. I strongly suspect that both sims will continue to fill important roles for those who enjoy flight simulation.

I will personally be pre-ordering this today, and flying it the moment it releases. I also remain committed to getting the most out of Prepar3d, and hope to do being so long into the future.

Anyone else disappointed with the airport situation? I was under the impression from the adverts that all airports will be highly detailed 😕 

Yeah shame on you Asobo. I want my 40.000 detailed airports now!

I am actually really pleased there is a Baron.  It's like my go to plane in XP many times, for flights or just testing.  I think MSFS has a brilliant selection of aircraft in general.   Only one extra I would really enjoy is a default 737 (any variety).

Wow great news, everybody is blind sided!   Alpha is running very well but I honestly expected at least a few months for the Beta.

Fantastic surprise of new aircraft and airports for Premium Deluxe!

Bring it on MSFS 2020!

Greazer.

What part of standard, Deluxe & Premium are you missing? MSFS 2020 is officially fake news!

At least, when the problem threads in the MSFS 2020 forum begin to arrive we can check in there and say "Asobo rushed the release because they feared that LM will have 5.1 early ready!" 😅

Alright, now I really need to find myself a new desktop... Big bucks.

To my better half, I will plead that in the grand scheme of things, this is not such a bad midlife crisis to have 😁

Wait until they find out their house is of wrong color in the game and the interiors are not modelled.
