Sure, Microsoft Flight Simulator has done a great job of simulating life in the cockpit of a variety of real-world aircraft at 30,000 feet. But what about the other half of this equation? AirportSim, an exclusive Xbox Series X|S console due out next year (it’s also coming to PC at the same time), aims to show you what life is like for the ground crew that is so essential to all air travel.
The new AirportSim trailer, which you can watch at the top of this page (with click-through screenshots below), showcases the three main game modes: Free Roam, Scenario, and Challenge. Each depicts life as a key ground crew at one of many real airports. You drive the luggage trolley, refuel the plane in freezing temperatures and much more.
AirportSim features dynamic real-time and real-world weather, real aircraft like the Boeing 737 MAX and Airbus A320 NEO, online and local collaboration, and more.
