Microsoft Flight Simulator’s 95gb client game massive download takes people forever


Microsoft Flight Simulator is out on PC today and without a doubt people are rushing to play it. It currently sits at 93 on Metacritic. We gave it a 10/10 in our review and absolutely loved our stay with it.

Gamers took to Twitter throughout the day, saying they were having issues with the large in-game client download. You were able to preload the game on the Xbox PC app, but it didn’t download. than the client (1 GB), which required you to download more than 90 GB in the client.

The problem is that the client download speeds are significantly slower than the Xbox app and other launchers, and users’ downloads stagnate in the middle of the download or near the end. People are also not very happy with the fact that it plays music (which you have to turn off on the system side) during installation.

In an even more interesting turn of events, it appears that the client was not downloaded for the people who originally purchased the game on Steam, although this has now been rectified.

Ultimately, it’s not an ideal situation to preload something and expect to be able to play it instantly upon launch, only to be faced with a fairly slow download of 90GB (which is important for the Australian internet). , but it will definitely be worth the wait once you get the game.

It’s free right now for Xbox Game Pass subscribers on PC, so if you’ve got a suitable platform, definitely go out there and explore the world. The game will also arrive on Xbox One (and presumably Xbox Series X) at a later date, although Microsoft has yet to announce a release date for consoles. It is definitely a game that should be able to be played by as many people as possible, and of which Microsoft can be proud.
