Updated Feb 2015 – Microsoft Flight for Windows (a spiritual successor to the popular Flight Simulator franchise) was sadly abandoned by Microsoft a couple of years ago. However, Dovetail Games have since signed a licensing deal with Microsoft and now have exclusive rights to develop and publish all-new flight products based on Microsoft’s flight technology :-)
They recently released Microsoft Flight Simulator X: Steam Edition via the Steam platform which includes the Deluxe Edition and the Acceleration Expansion Pack in one bundle.
The Steam Edition can be found in the Steam Store here. It has Windows 8.1 and multiplayer support with over 80 missions and 24 aircraft included.
