Microsoft Flight Simulator has finally landed on Xbox with wannabe pilots on console able to fly with those on PC.
Dubbed an impressive workout for the Xbox Series X/S, it’s the first big next-gen title for Major Nelson and others on the side of the green brand. Not only does it allow players to trot around the world, but it also allows them to visit some of the most beautiful real-life landmarks such as the Grand Canyon, Mount Fuji in Japan, and Brazil’s Christ the Redeemer.
There are plenty more stunning places to visit, and the good news is that you can have both a lads or ladies holiday regardless of platform.
Does Microsoft Flight Simulator have multiplayer?
Microsoft Flight Simulator has three multiplayer modes:
- Live Players
- All Players
- Group Players
Live Players allows you to see everyone who has the same Air Traffic settings as yourself. This will allow you to fly around the globe with real-time weather and time of day conditions in every country you visit.
All Players basically means that you share the sky with everyone except for those who have Group Players enabled. Lastly, Group Players allows you to only see pilots invited to your session.
Just so you know, whoever creates the group and invites players will be responsible for the air conditions and other settings.
How to invite friends
You can only invite or join friends from your Xbox Live list. In order to add a pal to your world, all you need to do is find your friends list in the upper right corner of the main menu.
Once you’ve done that, all you need to do then is select your mate’s name
(preferably when they’re online) and click invite to group. They will need to accept the invitation on their end and you should then be able to roam the sky together on the same server.
Is Microsoft Flight Simulator cross platform?
Microsoft Flight Simulator does have crossplay and cross platform multiplayer between PC and Xbox.
Per the game’s FAQ, you will see users from all platforms of the game. This means you’ll be able to see aircrafts from players who bought the sim from either the Microsoft store or Steam.
It also means you’ll be able to join sessions with any of your friends regardless of whether they play on computer or console.
