Microsoft Launches Top Gun Flight Simulator Expansion For Free

You don’t need to be a huge movie buff to know that there’s a new Top Gun movie in town and now Microsoft is celebrating the fact by releasing a free add-on for the popular Flight Simulator game.

The Top Gun expansion was already being worked on but was originally delayed so that its release could coincide with the arrival of the movie in cinemas.

The new update includes Top Gun: Maverick Edition livery for the F/A-18E Super Hornet as well as training missions, while five challenges are also available once the training is complete. There’s more, too!

The “Top Gun: Maverick” expansion contains:

  • A “Top Gun: Maverick Edition” livery for the F/A-18E Super Hornet.
  • Three training missions for the Super Hornet that will allow you to master radical flight maneuvers including unrestricted take-offs, split S maneuvers, and low altitude, high-speed maneuvering through complex terrain.
  • Five high-speed, low-level challenges that require utmost skill to navigate just above mountains and traverse through canyons.
  • A carrier deck landing challenge, one of the most demanding operations in the world of military aviation.
  • A never-before-unveiled hypersonic aircraft that can attain speeds of Mach 10 and altitudes greater than 150,000 feet above sea level.
  • A mission to roar into the stratosphere.

The new update and additional content is available to all Flight Simulator gamers for free right now. It’s available across the Xbox Series S/X, PC, and Xbox Cloud Gaming platforms. Happy flying!
