Microsoft is now gearing up for the launch of its Flight Simulator: Game of the Year Edition with a handful of new aircraft and locations you can visit.

Coming this November, the new version of the game adds five new aircraft to its roster, including the title’s first fighter jet: the F/A-18 Super Hornet. You’ll also be able to pilot the eVTOL VoloCity, the Pilatus PC-6 Porter, the CubCrafters NX Cub, and the Aviat Pitts Special S1S while you visit eight new airports spanning across Germany, Switzerland and the United States.

Planes and airports aside, those who purchase the game will also get to experience a series of new features including new missions and tutorials, an updated weather system, a developers mode replay system, as well as early access to DirectX 12. The best thing of all is that those who already own Microsoft Flight Simulator won’t have to pay extra to access any of the new features: you’ll get a free update once the new edition launches.

For those interested, you can learn more about Microsoft Flight Simulator: Game of the Year Edition in the trailer above and over on its website while you wait for its launch on November 18.

Elsewhere in gaming, The Haunting event is returning to Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and Warzone for Halloween.
