Steam DB Microsoft Flight Simulator launched just for Xbox Series X consoles
The results are surprising. Updates for console versions have been translated to PC versions, which are driving sim’s highest player counts since its launch on Steam.
Steam-DB records that Microsoft Flight Simulator saw a record 19,594 Steam players after the July 27 update. This is the highest number of players the game has seen since launch almost a year ago. Steam-db shows that this only includes Steam users. Players on Xbox Game Pass and Microsoft Store are not included.
The game’s performance was boosted significantly by this week’s update. Some players report that their frame rate has increased up to two times since the patch. To make the game more enjoyable for beginners, this update adds new features such as discovery flights and more options to explore other worlds.
The complete patch notes can be viewed on Steam.
