While the release Note does not specifically say so, can we assume that the GOTY Edition is a Free Update for existing MSFS owners ? (Like World Updates)

ie It is really an “Update”, as opposed to a “Different Product Edition” like Premium or Deluxe.

Hello there Jayne, first of all thank you for all your hard work and all you do for the msfs community. I just wanted to ask does this mean that new buyers will have to pay for the new edition and existing players get it for free? I’m a little confused on how the post ended.

I had another question as well regarding windows 11 does this mean this edition of the sim will be much more optimized for windows 11?

“Coming soon” is delightfully vague. Can we assume this will slot into one of the announced windows for an update, like SU7 maybe?

The Game of the Year Edition will be released November 18th.

Boeing F/A-18 Super Hornet - YES !
While I love military as well as historic aircraft, neither the Ju 52 nor the Reno racers are quite “me”, a Super Hornet could add another level of gameplay to the game.
One request: will the Super Hornet feature external fuel tanks? It would greatly increase its range, and therefore its usability within the sim.
Thanks!

Still not 100% clear …

So “Microsoft Flight Simulator Game of the Year Edition” replaces “MSFS Standard Edition” ?

Will MSFS Premium, and MSFS Deluxe contain the content of “Microsoft Flight Simulator Game of the Year Edition”, or will they remain the same, and have the “GOTY” content as a Free Update ?

If LSZA, LSZH and EDJA are the airports that GAYA was teasing since months, we are in for a treat :heart_eyes:

Bruh no it’s not, which is why I asked. The date at the top is today’s and the only reference to November 18 is in the body of the release referring to Win11 stuff.

But Jane answered so it’s fine.

Game of the Year Edition replaces the Standard edition moving forward. Deluxe and Premium Deluxe users of course get everything that comes with the GOTY Edition as well.
