Next tuesday July 27th players who own an Xbox Series X or an Xbox Series S will be able to soar through the skies of Spain, Norway, the United States, South Africa or any other country in the world in planes of all kinds. That day the version for video game consoles hits physical and digital stores Microsoft Flight Simulator, which will be available from launch day on Xbox Game Pass.
However, it may be that you first have to uninstall some of the games installed on your machine. Twitter user @IdleSloth84 (va GamingBolt) has shared a photo of the console menu where the size of the game installation is reflected: 97,2 GB. We do not know if once the servers are open it will be necessary download some update that expands the space to occupy in the storage SSD, or that on the contrary, optimizes it.
For users of Xbox Series X It shouldn’t be too much of a problem, since it has a few 800 GB useful storage (out of 1 TB total). However, the 512 GB of internal space it has Xbox Series S stays in about 360 GB tiles, so if there are multiple AAA games installed, like Forza Horizon 4, Call of Duty Warzone Y The Elder Scrolls: Online, it will be necessary to free up space to make room for the planes.
It is not surprising that the Asobo Studios title published by Xbox Game Studios occupies 97.2 GB. At the end of the day, it is a game that recreate the entire planet Earth; although to see the recreation reliably you have to be connected to the network, since it is constantly downloading data packets. And furthermore, he does it with a photorealism which, almost a year after its release on PC, is still one of the most impressive games in this regard. The computer version occupied, according to the Microsoft Store, 147.6 GB, although it recently reduced its size to 83 GB.
