We’re well into the second half of July, so Microsoft has announced another set of titles coming to Xbox Game Pass this month. Including Flight Simulator!

“On July 27, we’re taking to the skies with Microsoft Flight Simulator on Xbox Series X|S,” Microsoft’s Megan Spurr announced. “Plus we’re continuing our 20 Years of Xbox celebration with some beloved Xbox classics.”

Here’s what’s coming soon.

This ain’t no ordinary farming simulator.”

    Blinx utilized the hard disk in the original Xbox for the DVR'ish time travel controls. Back then, having a hard disk in a console was a unique feature and this game did a good job of demonstrating the benefits. The game itself was a decent platformer from what I remember.

      I agree. It was one of my favorite games on the OG Xbox. It had some clever time altering puzzles. Also I'm glad that Crimson Skies is coming to Game Pass. I've been hoping that Microsoft would reboot this game for the Series X/S consoles but I'll take what I can get. Now if only Microsoft would do a Framerate Boost to Sunset Overdrive and I'd be a happy Xbox gamer!!

        I was surprised to see Crimson Skies on this list because I thought it was already on Game Pass. I lose track of these things!


        I can see Crimson Skies getting an enhanced version, or a new entry in the series, if there is enough interest in the original game being on Game Pass. Cross your fingers.
