When it comes to Microsoft Flight Simulator, developer Asobo Studio remains consistent with its post-launch plans for the title. Most recently, we witnessed the game emphasis on this with World Update IX. In that, both Italy alongside Malta were featured highlighting on cities including Venice, Florence, and even Vatican City as well.

However, one long-promised add-on for Microsoft Flight Simulator has yet to arrive. Back in June 2021, the Xbox firm revealed Microsoft Flight Simulator is set to hit Xbox Series machines later on. For the fall, a free Top Gun expansion was told to hit the game later on and feature fighter jet aircrafts.

In a new reveal on Wednesday, Top Gun: Maverick is hitting theaters this week and the titular film now shares the same name for the DLC as Asobo Studio launches the expansion. You can watch the launch trailer in the video below:

“Develop the skills required and navigate complexities encountered by actual Top Gun pilots in authentic locations, including a carrier deck landing challenge, one of the most demanding operations in the world of military aviation,” explains the description for the launch trailer on YouTube.

“The Top Gun: Maverick expansion also contains a Maverick Edition livery for the F/A-18E Super Hornet, Super Hornet training missions that will introduce you to radical flight maneuvers, five high-speed, low-level challenges through mountains and canyons, a never-before-unveiled hypersonic aircraft, and a mission to roar into the stratosphere.”
