Asobo Studio’s hotly-anticipated pilot sim comes in three editions. The $59.99 standard edition, which includes 20 “highly detailed planes with unique flight models” and 30 hand-crafted airports; the $89.99 deluxe edition, which includes everything in the standard edition plus five additional “highly accurate planes with unique flight models” and five additional “handcrafted international airports”; and the $119.99 premium deluxe edition, which includes everything from the standard edition plus 10 additional “highly accurate planes with unique flight models” and 10 additional “handcrafted international airports”. It’s the standard edition that’s available on day one with Xbox Game Pass for PC.
