Same level of depth as the PC version, with the most authentic and realistic flight simulator we have ever created.
On top of this partnership with Paramount Pictures later this year there is a free expansion. On 19th November the Top Gun expansion will launch in the game. As we know this will coincide with the film launch of Top Gun Maverick.
The game will also support cross-play with PC, including the Steam release. It is also cross-save but Microsoft announced there are some limits on this. Third-party support for this is down to the developer and DLC purchased via Steam is not transferable to Xbox.
