Microsoft Flight Simulator launches on the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S today. To celebrate the game's console release, the Xbox team in Australia and New Zealand is giving away a limited edition Microsoft Flight Simulator suitcase.
The suitcase looks like the Xbox Series S and also comes with an Xbox Series S console, two Xbox controllers, and a portable monitor. The body of the suitcase is from July and has a custom interior to fit gadgets safely.
Even if you don't have a custom suitcase, you can purchase the game on Steam or the Microsoft Store. You can also get it on launch day through Xbox Game Pass. Like waiting at an airport, you can follow our guide on Microsoft Flight Simulator launch times to plan your day.
In our Microsoft Flight Simulator Xbox review, our gaming editor Matt Brown says, "the full Microsoft Flight Simulator experience comes to the living room, serving as a true graphical showcase for its consoles."
Microsoft Flight Simulator may look striking on the Xbox Series X, but Brown points to the game's performance on the Xbox Series S as the technical marvel. "While Xbox Series X renders striking vistas with a 4K target, it's the Xbox Series S that takes the spotlight with incredible results on this $299 box," says Brown. "It's the toughest test yet on next-generation systems, but a slick port makes it snag-free."
To enter for a chance to win, you have to be a resident of Australia or New Zealand and be 13 or older. Any participants under 18 have to have a parent or guardian approve entry. The full terms and conditions of the competition are available on Microsoft's website.
