Tomorrow we will be releasing the free 40th Anniversary Edition update to Microsoft Flight Simulator.
This is the biggest update to MSFS since its initial release in 2020, and it has been a huge labor of love and source of pride for the development team.
To our millions of loyal fans and sim pilots, from those who have been with us since the start with MSFS 1. 0 way back in 1982, to those who embarked on their first simulated flight with the latest version in 2020, thank you for being part of this journey with us.
The sky is calling! The 40th Anniversary Edition update will be released at 8am PST (1600Z) on Friday.
See this chart for the release time in various different global cities. The size of the update will be about 22 GiB (for Premium Deluxe) and users will require 40 GiB of free space.
Release notes will be made available at launch time, as will an update to our Known Issues list.
As a friendly reminder, those players who are taking part in the optional SU11 beta test will be migrated to the new release build approximately one hour after it goes live.
