Ahead of its big Windows 8 event in Barcelona, due to start any minute at the time of writing, Microsoft has made Flight, its new flight simulator, available as a free download.
Making a scheduled landing today, the sim is designed as an easily accessible alternative to the full-on Flight Simulator X, and Microsoft has opted for a free-to-play model, with expansion packs being charged for.
So. Much. Tech.
Some of the biggest names in tech are coming to TNW Conference in Amsterdam this May.
Having taken an early look at the sim, our own Alex Wilhelm noted: “Flight will likely attract a casual audience, and given its no cost, a large one. However, this will do little to disrupt the yet popular Flight Simulator X, a game that has its own cottage industry that create modifications and models for the game.”
